[Update 05-29] Nike has cancelled online release of the Air Jordan 1 High OG “Varsity Red” “Chicago”. However, retailers already have their stock on hand. (Advise from Nike)
The shoe that started it all is retro-ed yet again. Very iconic, thanks to Micheal Jordan’s loyalty to Chicago this will be the ever classic colorway that first released 30 years back. The Jumpman logo from the last release is replaced back with classic Nike Air and swoosh logo on the tongue from the last release. Making it as close to remastering the original. They also remastered packaging they did way back when you get the shoes unlaced. One to keep in mind in tagging shoes as 100% deadstock and maybe to tell over the counterfeit. This Saturday, May 30 everyone will be ready to grab a pair, to retire the old or just add to rotation. Here are links to retail shops:

Next up on the awesome Jordan Retro High 1’s is the ‘Pinnacle’ adding to its casuals or off-court collections. Although ridiculously priced at $399, this colorway will be limited and will surely sell out. The upper synthetic leather material will have a snakeskin texture and available in two colors when they drop; white and black. Both will have the plain white soles to highlight the upper colors. Blings of real 24-K gold Air Jordan wings and Nike Air logo tongues, lace ends and eyes and heel gold medallion engraved with “1985” and “MJ23” tags adds to overall luxurious good looks for this exclusive pair. Will release in June at Flight 23 stores.
These pirs will be dropped in June from retailers in the US while in UK it’s on this Saturday, May 9 from the following stores:
