The last time Jordan Brand brought back the Air Jordan 1 “Chicago” was in 2015, and it looks like the iconic colorway will come back to the Air Jordan 1 with a twist in 2022.

White leather and red leather overlays provide a realistic impression

The shape of the upcoming Air Jordan sneaker will be more like the one that came out in 1985, and the upper and midsole should show signs of wear and tear. The upper is made of white leather and the tongue is made of white nylon. There are red leather overlays, but the Swoosh and ankle collar are black. The sneaker has a red tongue tag with white Nike branding. It also has a white midsole and a red outsole. The packaging, “receipt,” mismatched box top, and other details pay homage to the chase for the “Chicago” Air Jordan 1 after it came out in 1984-1985. Back then, people looked for it in the basements and storage rooms of mom-and-pop shops.


The Air Jordan 1 “Lost & Found” might not be the smartest shoe ever made, but it is one of Nike’s more thought-provoking options. In a world full of brand collaborations, signature sneakers, and other types of sneakers, it’s nice to see a classic get a new story.
