Air Jordans 1 High “Chicago” is a limited edition collaboration between Marcus Jordans’s sneaker boutique and Jordans Brand on Michael Jordanss iconic first signature shoe. Michael’s son Marcus’s boutique adds a vintage look to the classic “Chicago” colorway as an ode to Michael’s wearing of the shoe during the 1985 NBA All-Star Game. Memorably, Jordans was “frozen out” at one point in the game by fellow stars Isiah Thomas and Julius Erving, who refused to pass him the ball as part of a “lesson” to teach Jordans, then an up-and-coming rookie. Several subtle nods to the “freeze out” appear on the shoe, beginning with the icy texture covering the red leather overlays found on the forefoot, eyelets, collar, and heel. Elsewhere, white leather appears on the perforated toe and on the mid-panel. Black shoelaces sit atop the white nylon tongue that features a red nylon tongue tag with “Air” branding. A black leather Swoosh is located on either side and a black “Wings” emblem can be found on the collar. Michael Jordans’s signature is printed onto the heel above the sail midsole. The translucent blue outsole dons blue and red stars to finish off the look. Release date: February 10, 2021. Please note: Does not come with additional blue shoe laces.
