Billed as the most accurate re-creation of Michael Jordan's first signature sneaker ever, the Air Jordan 1 Hi '85 is set to arrive to market in a 'Georgetown' colourway this spring – official images of which just surfaced. Inspired by an unreleased Air Jordan 1 PE made for the Georgetown Hoyas in the 1980s, this 'new' colourway from Jordan Brand gives off peak 80s hoops style!

The main differences between the Air Jordan 1 and Air Jordan 1 Hi '85 are that the Hi '85 has a taller, flatter collar than the plain AJ1 and equips a smaller ball-and-wings logo. It's crafted from a more premium-grade leather than its counterpart, features an aged nylon tongue and makes use of a digitally-recreated OG midsole that replicates the spacing and branding of the very first pairs. From a colourway standpoint, the 'Georgetown' displays the Hoyas' navy and grey palette in classic two-tone style, and also comes equipped with the same hangtag that the original Air Jordan 1s featured back in 1985.

The release of a Hi '85 is a rare treat, as the model was debuted for NBA All-Star Weekend 2020 and has only seen three colourways since then: 'New Beginnings' and 'Varsity Red' in 2020, plus 'Neutral Grey' in 2021, making the 'Georgetown' the fourth Hi '85 style to hit shelves.

An exact date of arrival for the Air Jordan 1 Hi '85 'Georgetown' has yet to be revealed, but it's supposed to reach retailers sometime this April (barring supply chain issues) and will be priced at $200.
