This year, one particular teacher ended up making himself eligible for being dubbed “teacher of the year.” Sneaker who still own an original Air Jordan 1 pair from 1985 are definitely quite fortunate. Students are often not fond of their gym teachers, but a certain gym teacher set quite an admirable example by gifting one of his students an Air Jordan 1 “Chicago” pair. This story was posted on reddit by the student, who happens to be an avid sneakerhead. While original pairs of the Air Jordan 1 “Chicago” are nearly impossible to come by, the Air Jordan 1 Rare Air colorways featured here draws inspiration from it.
It seems that Jordan Brand will be more inclined to drop brand new Air Jordan 1 Rare Air colorways than those of the regular Air Jordan 1 silhouette in 2017. The colorways of the Rare Air variation that will make their retail debut among the Air Jordan releases 2017 include a Black & White, an “Alternate Royal,” a “Banned” and a “Max Orange” one. Jordan Brand had introduced the Air Jordan 1 Rare Air in commemoration of the model’s 30th anniversary. Initially, this silhouette had arrived at retailers in “Black,” “Cool Grey,” “Red” and other colorways. The Air Jordan 1 Rare Air itself is one year old now.
Considering that the Air Jordan 1 Rare Air has been borrowing classic colorways of the first Air Jordan model, it was only a matter of time until it got dressed up in the original “Chicago” colorway. The Air Jordan 1 Rare Air “Chicago” almost looks like an exact replica of the sneaker it draws inspiration from. It feels both like an OG and a retro at the same time. Predominantly, this sneaker is dressed up in a color scheme of Black, Red and White just like the original. However, the “Jumpman” logo appears on each tongue, “AIR JORDAN” is spelled out on the sides where the the Jordan “Wings” branding usually is, and the “Nike Air” is embroidered over each heel in tonal Red. It is also equipped with all-White midsoles and all-Red outsoles.
It seems that in 2017, sneakerheads will have plenty of Rare Air colorways to choose from, but this particular one will really be quite worth copping. It is being reported that this Air Jordan 1 Rare Air “Chicago” will make its retail debut early in 2017 and its price will apparently be $140.
