What's already been a nostalgic 30th Anniversary for Jordan Brand continues with the first official release of one of its earliest hybrids.

The Air Jordan 1.5 pairs the upper of the Air Jordan 1 with elements of the Air Jordan 2's tooling. Other unique cues like Nike branded wings and exposed foam also appear on the shoe, which Michael Jordan actually wore as a rookie in 1985.

First up, a sentimental grab for historians and somewhat of a consolation prize for those who couldn't pick up the standard Air Jordan 1 Retro in May. The "Chicago" Air Jordan 1.5 has a sneaker release date of Saturday, July 25 for $150.
