Continuing the recent trend of amalgam sneakers, the upcoming colorway references the color schemes found on the AJ1 “Banned” and “Chicago,” respectively. Combining two of Jordan Brand‘s classic looks, the “Homage to Home” was designed to pay homage to the history of the shoe that started it all, while providing a new generation with a bold new colorway. The lateral sides of the sneaker feature a familiar white and red look while the medial sides express the iconic black and red look. Additionally, retro Nike Air branding on the tongue serves to highlight the High OG construction of the shoe.
Priced at $190 USD, the Air Jordan 1 “Homage to Home” is set to release at select Jordan Brand retailers May 19.
For more Jordan Brand, the Nike Basketball division recently honored Michael Jordan’s childhood home with the Air Jordan 32 Low “Gordon St.”
