It may have been more than two years since The Last Dance premiered, but the fervour the show stoked for the Air Jordan 1 'Chicago' has not died down even a little bit. The Jordan Brand rumour mill is constantly churning with news of a possible 'Chicago' release, but those rumours appear to have some merit to them this year with a model dubbed the Air Jordan 1 'Chicago Reimagined' supposedly hitting shelves this October. Some outlets were pump-faked into incorrectly reporting that another Air Jordan 1 was the 'Chicago Reimagined' earlier this year, but now we've got what may be our first real look at the model via Instagram sneaker leaker @sneakertigger.
Shared via his Instagram Stories, @sneakertigger's text-topped photos don't show a lot – but they do show enough to get a general feel for what the model might be like. As expected, it leaves the classic 'Chicago' colourblocking untouched but adds faux-aged detailing via a cracked leather construction that's more noticeable around the collar and less pronounced on the rest of the shoe, like the cracking on OG pairs from 1985 often is. The tongue is also given a slightly yellowed hue to lock in the look.
Early reports have also stated that the 'Chicago Reimagined' will feature a cut and shape that's more true to the original release than past drops have been, and will also come packaged in a special box. It's set to release on October 29 pending confirmation from Jordan Brand and will retail at $190.
