Thanks to new colorways like the “University Blue” and “Georgetown,” the Air Jordan 1 has been able to maintain its chokehold on sneaker culture. And come later this 2022, the brand’s grip will only grow tighter, as the “Chicago” is making a comeback this Holiday Season. 2023, too, will welcome even more classics, with 1985’s “Black/White” colorway set to return for the first time in years.
Brought back by way of the upgraded Air Jordan 1 85, the “Black/White” is currently slated for a February 2023 arrival. The pair incorporates blacks across its overlays — dressing both the check and adjacent paneling — and white across much of its foundation. Midsoles, laces, Wings logos, and the base are all clad in the light neutral, rounding out a likely faithful homage to one of the simplest colorways in the silhouette’s original catalog.
Though no images of the 2023 Retro have been shared just yet, you can enjoy a look at the 1985 pair right here. As mentioned above, the “Black/White” will be returning February 2023; more information will be added here as it surfaced.
