Original Story (10/28/20): Marcus Jordan, son of Michael Jordan, is releasing a new version of the classic Air Jordan 1 “Chicago” through a collaboration with his Trophy Room store.
This Air Jordan 1 has a vintage-inspired look that takes the classic “Chicago” colorway and gives it white stitching and a translucent sole. Michael Jordan’s signature appears on the heel, while the insole has a sewn-on Air Jordan x Trophy Room patch. Through the clear outsole, we see four stars, two red and two blue.

Update (11/02/20): Marcus Jordan has announced that there will be no Trophy Room x Jordan release in 2020. With this info, these are now expected to drop to commemorate All-Star Weekend 2021, which was scheduled to take place in Indianapolis in February.
Nods to the 1985 All-Star game are found in the shoe’s design, which also took place in Indianapolis and was MJ’s first All-Star appearance. The insignia on the insoles features a similar design to the ’85 All-Star logo, while the stars on the outsole appear to pay homage to the uniforms of the ’85 All-Star Game.
The “Rumor Has It…” printed on the insole may be a reference to the rumor that some of the older players in the All-Star Game (Isiah Thomas, Magic Johnson, and George Gervin) allegedly colluded to guard each other loosely so they could rack up points, while locking Jordan down when he had the ball so he would have a bad game. Jordan ended up scoring only 7 points.
