Face it, the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG is a difficult style to track down these days. But, there is an alternative.
For anyone eager to buy a pair that retains the original "Nike Air" branding, the Air Jordan 1 The Return, shown here, has been a more accessible alternative. Take the "Chicago" colorway for example, which is still available at some retailers while the true "Chicago" Jordan 1 retro sold out within minutes.
Of course the shoe doesn't have all OG flavor, as some Air Jordan 2 cues pull it away from the traditional Air Jordan 1 build.
This next colorway for the hybrid style will hit stores starting on Sep. 19.
