If the upcoming 'Chicago' Air Jordan 1 Retro wasn't anticipated enough, Jordan Brand adds another reason to be excited.
Shown in the picture below, the May release will be factory unlaced, with additional sets in red and white. This may seem insignificant to some collectors, but older heads remember that the original 1985 run was also packaged unlaced. Throw in the Nike Air branding and throwback box and it's the closest version of the original since 1994.
Whether or not Jordan Brand has lived up to their promise to deliver one-to-one retros is still up for debate, but taking this step for the Air Jordan 1 is a nice touch for its 30th Anniversary.
