Marcus Jordan Isn’t Happy with Trophy Room x Air Jordan 1 Leaks
By now, you’re probably aware that the Trophy Room sneaker boutique has a commemorative Air Jordan 1 collaboration in the works. Tweeting about the upcoming release, the store’s founder Marcus Jordan, son of Michael, isn’t happy about the early leaks which have filtered through over the past month.
Marcus believes there’s been some shady work in the background that’s led to the shoes being leaked, and he also revealed that Trophy Room were yet to receive pairs. Additionally, he says he only recently found out that the shoes had arrived in the United States. Referencing the ‘shiesty brothers in Memphis’, Marcus suggests that the shoes may have been leaked from brand’s largest worldwide distribution centre in Memphis, Tennessee.

With stock numbers recently revealed, the Trophy Room x Air Jordan 1 High OG looks like it will be limited to just 12,000 pairs. With more leaks filtering through, we now have a potential release date, as well as some new shots.
Revealed earlier this month, the colourway is inspired by none other than the famed ‘Chicago’ Air Jordan 1, which debuted in 1985. A familiar combination of white, ‘Varsity Red’, and black dominates the sneaker, with a bit of ‘Sail’ thrown into the mix for a subtle change-up. However, it’s the luxurious details that truly set this AJ1 apart. The white leather upper is complemented with glittery red overlays, as the traditional ‘Nike Air’ tongues, black Swooshes, and ankle collar return. Instead of the traditional red stitching on the upper, Trophy Room have used white, resulting in a more distinct outline to the panels. The highlight of the collaboration undoubtedly comes on the lateral heel, where you’ll find Michael Jordan’s signature printed in black, making this a potential collector’s item. Down below, there’s a translucent outsole revealing red and blue stars, as ‘Trophy Room’ patched insoles complete the ensemble.
The Trophy Room x Air Jordan 1 High OG was originally rumoured for release in November, but Marcus Jordan quickly dispelled those rumours via Twitter. The latest theory is that they’ll drop on February 10, the date of Michael Jordan’s first NBA All-Star Game back in 1985, as that date is present on the ticket stub (pictured).
