The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Homage To Home” exclusively released in Chicago with a production number of only 2,300 pairs made available. The un-numbered version of the exact sneaker will be releasing this week, 19th May on Nike, in larger quantity.

The origin of how this colorway came about is inspired by the sneakers Michael Jordan (MJ) took flight in the Dunk Contest on the Saturday of All-Star Weekend as well as the All-Star game where he was a starter.

MJ broke out one of the most iconic sneakers in the industry on Saturday, the Air Jordan 1 “Banned” to an impressive second place finish, recording the only perfect score of the night. During the All-Star Game on Sunday, Jordan laced up in a pair of AJ1 “Chicago” with an aura of swagger that only NBA veterans had in the past. Ever since that weekend, both the “Chicago” and “Bred” colorway of the Air Jordan 1 rose to the top, ending up being the cream of the crop. Jordan Brand finally found a way to honor both colorways simultaneously with one distinguished release. All the way from 1985 up to 2018, Jordan Brand honors the only time Michael wore both the “Bred” and “Chicago” colorway in the same weekend, creating the AJ1 “Homage to Home”.

The Air Jordan 1 “Homage To Home” will be releasing this Saturday, with a retail price of RM629. Would you cop?
