The Jordan 1 High in the Chicago Bulls theme is by far one of the most beautiful Jordan 1 colors of all time. 34 years later, fans are always excited about the best retro Jordan: Chicago. A simple white, red and black color scheme makes this shoe stand out. It is one of the most important sneakers of the decade and remains important today.
In recent years, it has become one of the rarest retro Jordans due to the fact that every sneakerhead in the world wants and needs a pair. In 2020, the 1985 version OG with Jordan’s signature was auctioned for nearly $ 800,000, making it among the most expensive shoes in the world.
Nike Air Jordan 1 ‘Royal’ (1985)
In parallel with the launch of the Air Jordan 1 pair in 1985, Nike also released an alternate with more attractive colors. And this makes the “Royal” blue become MJ’s favorite pair of all original colors.
One of the first ads to show the Air Jordan 1 was a scene of Jordan wearing this royal blue. The photo has since become iconic. Like all the colors of the Jordan 1, the story behind the shoe plays an important role. The light blue and black leather upper provides the perfect background.
