Lot Essay

The Air Jordan 1 High “Chicago” is an original pair of Michael Jordan’s first signature shoe in the classic white, red and black colorway that was released in 1985. Timeless. Historic. Rare. Iconic. All of these superlatives plus many more describe the appeal of this first edition Air Jordan 1 “Chicago.”

The “Chicago” colorway is considered by many collectors to be the most iconic look for the Jordan 1, being the colorway Jordan himself wore on court for much of his rookie season. White leather on the perforated toe and the mid-panel allows for the fiery red leather on the overlaid panels to pop, turning heads. A classic black leather Swoosh appears on either side and a black “Wings” emblem can be found on the collar. The original Air Jordan 1 from 1985 has a slightly taller collar with less padding than the modern Jordan 1 High OG retro model that is based on this sneaker.
