Original Story (03/03/22): Jordan Brand is releasing a “Chicago Reimagined” colorway of the Air Jordan 1 this holiday season, according to reports.

This Air Jordan 1 is expected to come in the same white, red, and black “Chicago” color scheme of OG 1985 release. The “Reimagined” part is that this release will feature a vintage look with possibly distressed uppers and a pre-yellowed midsole. This is to mimic the look of an OG Air Jordan 1 that was released over 35 years ago. The shape of this Air Jordan 1, particularly in the toe box area, will also be modified to resemble that of an OG pair.

This “Reimagined” release is the second in a series of annual Air Jordan 1 releases, following the release of the “Patent Bred” 1s in 2021. Look for the Air Jordan 1 “Chicago Reimagined” to release this holiday season on SNKRS and at select retailers. Stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for updates.
