There’s a high volume of exciting collaborations being pumped into the market over the course of 2022, but one can argue that the most enticing release of the year will be the Air Jordan 1 High OG “Chicago Reimagined” launch. Sneakerheads have been waiting seven years for this iconic installment to make a comeback, and we now have an up-close look at all of its stunning details.
The reason for the word “Reimagined” in the shoe’s moniker is that the Jordan Brand has opted to tweak its materials in such a way that they appear with a worn-in aesthetic. If you take a gander at the collars, you’ll notice that they’ve been whipped up with solid cracked leather to achieve a vintage vibe. “Muslin” tongues and laces as well as the oxidized midsole pieces further pronounce its retro intention. Elsewhere on the base layer comes the signature Bulls-inspired hues. “Varsity Red” submerges the overlays while stark white covers the perforated toe boxes and quarters. More stealthy accents are infused into the Swooshes and ball-and-wings logos, and the tongues are branded with “Nike Air” embellishments.
Check out a closer look at the pair in the gallery above and note that early reports have these slated to drop on October 29 for $180 USD.
