0 Air Jordan 1 “Homage to Home”

The latest iteration of the Air Jordan 1 plays with the recent trend of amalgam sneakers by referencing two widely popular color schemes found on the classic sneaker. Bringing together the “Banned” and “Chicago” colorways, the wide release “Homage to Home” is an homage to the history of the sneaker that started it all and brings a radical new look for a new generation of fans. These are set to release at select Jordan Brand retailers May 19. –HB

The Virgil Abloh x Air Jordan 1 “White” will arrive on February 27, exclusively in Europe. We’ll keep you posted with more news as it surfaces. –HB

New to the Jordan Brand family is this alternate version of the Air Jordan 1 Mid. Although very similar in appearance to the “Royal” rerelease we saw earlier this summer, this rendition, too, utilizes “Royal Blue,” however, swaps out the tonal black details for “Obsidian.” Although smooth leather dominates the uppers, tumbled leather also catches a spotlight as the textured material makes its way onto the toe, side panel Swoosh, heel and ankle overlay. Also note the Jumpman branding on the tongue, which replaces the ever-iconic Nike Air logo. –HB
