With the release of ESPN’s The Last Dance earlier this year, Air Jordan hype is the highest its been in a long time, especially for the OG colorways, and no OG is as beloved as much as the “Chicago” Air Jordan 1. Jordan Brand knows this, yet they’ve chosen not to bring back the OG in proper form in the last 5 years (last retro’d in 2015).
Jordan Brand does ease the pain by dropping variations of the classic, such as this upcoming release: the Air Jordan 1 Mid Chicago “White Heel.” This version takes the OG, gives its a mid-top cut, and replaces the red on the heel overlay with white. The tongue tag also features Jumpman branding instead of the OG Nike Air.
The Air Jordan 1 Mid Chicago “White Heel” has already dropped at some retailers overseas in grade-school sizing, but it is expected that this version will release in full family sizing sometime soon via Nike.com and US retailers.
