Air Jordan 1 High OG Lost & Found To Release In China First

The Air Jordan 1 High OG Lost & Found, previously known as the Air Jordan 1 High OG Chicago Reimagined, is without a doubt the most anticipated Jordan Brand release of 2022. Though not quite an actual retro release of Air Jordan 1 High OG Chicago, this new “Lost & Found” rendition of the sneaker is a refreshing take on a classic colorway of the Air Jordan 1 High OG.

Regarding the backstory of the sneaker, the overall concept of the release is an homage to mom and pop shops. From the special custom packaging to the retro-inspired details, everything plays a part in imagining a scenario in which you come a DS pair of Chicago 1s in the basement/storage of these very mom and pop shops. Imagine the Chicago 1s in storage packed up in beat up boxes, which even includes a replacement AJKO lid. The mix up concept presents the idea of “Lost and Found” to give you an aged filter look to this old classic. Aside from the vintage box, other much-appreciated packaging details include a vintage receipt, discount stickers and even some newspaper with vintage Air Jordan 1 advertisements on it.

The Air Jordan 1 High OG Lost & Found is said to mirror the release of 1994. Additionally, the sneaker is equipped with a slightly larger Swoosh on the side panels as well as a formed toe box. The design of the sneaker looks to replicate the distressed look of older pairs by coming equipped with cracks all throughout the toe box, mid-panel, and collar, while the soles are also aged to recreate the dustiness that is common when you end up leaving sneakers in storage for too long. Other details include the refined Wings logo on the collar and Muslin-colored tongues.

The Air Jordan 1 High OG Lost & Found will retail for $180 and is currently slated to release on November 19th at select retailers and Nike SNKRS. For a complete guide including official photos, release dates, pricing and where to buy, visit: Air Jordan 1 High OG Lost & Found.

ABOUT THE MODEL: The Air Jordan 1 High OG is arguably the most beloved sneaker in the Jordan signature line. The Chicago pair could also very well be the most popular OG colorway of the Air Jordan 1. Although the Chicago 1 was not the first colorway of the Air Jordan 1 that Michael Jordan got to lace up (Bred 1s were), the timeless Black, Red and White (Bulls) color scheme has grown to become a fan favorite the majority sneakerheads.

The last time the Air Jordan 1 High OG Chicago dropped was back in 2015. Although this “Lost & Found” version is not quite a true to OG release, it’s definitely done in a manner that many of us can appreciate. 99.9% of us don’t own a pair of 1985 Chicago 1s. With this upcoming release, this is as close as we can get to owning just that. This will without a doubt be one of the best, if not the best Jordan Brand release of 2022.
