Weekly Air Jordan retro releases have been a constant in sneakers for what seems like forever at this point. Every Saturday morning, the Jumpman continues to find new colors and inspirations—no matter how far fetched some of them might be—to dress Michael Jordan’s various signature sneakers. Despite the large amount of colorways always popping up on store shelves, they don’t always resonate quite the same way that the OG pairs do when they come back around.
The Air Jordan 1 arrived over three decades ago in 1985, and its inaugural color schemes are still among the best. The same goes for the Air Jordan 3, 4, 5, and so on. Due to their popularity, a lot of them still go for a pretty penny on the resell market in deadstock condition. But not all hope is lost. Some of the pairs can be copped for right around retail, if not a little more. It just takes a little bit of looking. Luckily, we already did it for you.
Take a look at 10 of the most affordable OG Air Jordan colorways below.
