The timeless “Chicago” makeup also holds a special place among the first signature’s colorways. The shoe was there for pivotal moments in MJ’s career, specifically his playoff career-high 63 points against Larry Bird’s Boston Celtics and his final game at Madison Square Garden as a Chicago Bull.
It’s about time we see the sneaker again in true-to-original form. Not since 1994 has a high-top Jordan 1 in the black, white, and Varsity Red hit store shelves.
And there’s certainly no Jumpman branding (which debuted on the Air Jordan 3) on this iteration of the Air Jordan classic. From the cut, to the mesh tongue and plush leather, to the Nike Air branding throughout, the “Chicago” Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG puts all that Jordan Brand’s remastering program has to offer at the forefront.
