As Jordan Brand recaps 30 years of history, it goes back to one of the earliest prototypes — an Air Jordan 1 equipped with modified Air Jordan 2 tooling. The sample has been a highly collectible unicorn throughout the years, but will soon be hitting shelves.
Already previewed in the 'Bulls' colorway, the shoe believed to be the Air Jordan 1.5 now turns up in a black-based style, with tonal Nike Wings, reptile textured Swooshes, a white midsole and gum rubber outsole.
There's no release date for the hybrid as of now, but a launch is expected later this year.
