UPDATE: This weekend, folks!
So you lucked out on the recent drop of the OG Chicago 1 huh? Don't sweat, you ain't the only one! Now Jordan Brand are bringing the Chicago 1 back with a slight twist. The Air Jordan 1.5 takes the AJ1 upper in all its Nike Air branded beauty (peep the Nike on the Wings logo) and joins it to a modified AJ2 sole. This isn't some whack fusion though, this is a truly rare OG. With Jordan dominating the court in his '85 rookie year, Nike designers started messing around with the Jordan 1, sending his Airness to the court in this Frankenstein combo of old and new to test out the AJ2 tech on the sly. 30 years later, this strange mashup is finally being released, so prep those tents and bust out those camping chairs for July 25.
