Heritage incarnate, the Air Jordan 1‘s newly revived 1985 shape is most certainly on everyone’s mind, and with All-Star Weekend just around the corner, so too is the model’s long-awaited release. From the New Beginnings pack, the silhouette jumped off with nostalgic influence, using the mythical Air Ship as yet another headline-worthy entry. Mixed in with Chicago-inspired themes, the pack effectively wipes the slate clean, going for the newfound instead of rehashing old-time classics. The next up, following closely behind the aforementioned, branches off from the coveted “Banned” colorway, tapping into an alternate reality where it comes as it does today. Black lines the unders of the sturdy leather constructions, only overlaid by the signature red tones: eye stays, toe caps, swooshes, ankle flaps, and the heel wrap all conform to the louder shade for something distinct though still reminiscent of the past from which it borrows.
