For the first time in 35 years, the Air Jordan 1 is coming back in its original form, as close to the 1985 release as possible — but it won’t be easy to get.
This latest iteration of the Jordan 1 features a traditional black and red color scheme inspired by the uniforms that NBA icon Michael Jordan wore during his playing days with the Chicago Bulls. The pair sports a black-based leather upper with contrasting red overlays, which sits atop a clean white midsole and red outsole. Longtime sneaker enthusiasts will appreciate that this release will include retro-style packaging, including a drawstring bag that marks each of 23,000 pairs made, along with an original-style hangtag depicting the legendary baller soaring above the Windy City skyline.
The latest Air Jordan 1 High “’85” will be released on Feb. 8 via the SNKRS app as well as at select Jordan Brand retailers for $200.
In related Jordan Brand news, the company is planning to release several pairs of sneakers for next week’s NBA All-Star Weekend along with a new Air Jordan 3 Retro SE “Unite,” which is being released exclusively in Chicago.
