Air Jordan 1s High OG Chicago 'Lost & Found' DZ5485-612
The last time we saw the Air Jordan 1 “Chicago” get retroed from Jordan Brand was in 2015 and looks like 7 years later, the iconic colorway returns to the Air Jordan 1 with a twist in 2022.
The shape of the upcoming sneaker is going to be more like the 1985 release, with distressing and aging expected to appear on the upper and midsole. The iconic colorway features a white leather upper and white nylon tongue, with red leather overlays sans the Swoosh and ankle collar appearing in black. The tongue tag is seen in red with white Nike branding with a white midsole and red outsole finishing off the sneaker.
Inspired by hunting the basements and storage rooms of mom-and-pop shops back in the day, the packaging, “receipt,” mismatched box top, and other details pay homage to the chase of the “Chicago” Air Jordan 1 after its 1984-1985 debut.
It’s been rumored that the highly coveted sneaker is to arrive fully stocked, with 500k pairs available worldwide. This is a significant increase in units as 300k is what is usually offered. If the rumors are true, this is the first time that Nike has upped the stock quantity for an Air Jordan 1.
The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG ‘Chicago Lost & Found’ brings back the iconic silhouette that started it all. Featuring the high-cut shape of the original 1985 release, the leather upper combines a white base with a black signature Swoosh and scarlet overlays at the forefoot and heel. Cracked black leather appears on the padded collar, while a vintage pre-yellowed finish is applied to the white rubber midsole. The vintage ‘80s aesthetic extends to the special packaging, highlighted by a damaged box plastered with sale stickers and topped with a mismatched replacement lid. An accompanying sales invoice is emblematic of a time when the Air Jordan 1 lingered on the shelves of mom and pop stores, eventually making their way into the hands of lucky customers at a steep discount.
