Introduced as a sample last summer, the "Homage to Home" Air Jordan 1 Retro will soon make its retail debut. The obvious inspiration is a blend of the two most iconic Jordan 1 colorways, "Banned" and "Chicago." Both styles are represented on the shoe's upper by way of a seam that creates a split down the middle.
Recently, a May 19 release date for the colorway was thrown out, but it looks like retailers are expecting something sooner. First spotted by J23app, both DTLR and Villa have the launch listed for Saturday, Apr. 21. Retail comes in at the standard $160.
