Reimagined releases

Wish you could go back in time to cop a specific sneaker you missed out on? Don’t worry, because with these reimagined Jordan releases you’ll be sure to get a second chance and go back in time. Nike is planning on doing way more reimagined Jordan releases besides, the ones we’ve currently seen. Because we are always ahead on all the sneakernews and sneaker releases, we are going to inform you all about the previous releases and upcoming ones. So be sure to read more down below, and who knows, you fall in love with the past!

The start of reimagined releases

Nike deciding to go back in time and re-release a sneaker isn’t something we haven’t seen before. With a lot of Nike Dunk Restocks like the Nike Dunk Low ‘Grey Fog’ or ‘Panda’ we get a second chance for a sneaker. Which is only positive if you ask me. Most of the time when Nike does a re-release the colorway changes a little bit or stays the same. We will give some examples of a re-release, but not a reimagined release. Might be interesting if you want an OG sneaker.

Jordan 1 OG releases

One of the sneakers Nike likes to bring out again is the Jordan 1. With examples such as the Jordan 1 High ‘Black White’ which re-released in February 2023, and Jordan 1 High ‘Black Toe’. Besides Jordan 1 High Nike also likes to change take OG colorways and put them on the Jordan 1 Mid. The Jordan 1 Mid ‘Bred’ is a good example of this. Whenever a colorway works well, there’s always a chance we see its release in a slightly different colorway. The Air Jordan 1 High ‘Shadow backboard’ for example. With multiple versions of this release.

Other Jordan OG Releases

Not only Jordan 1s get a re-release, but also other Jordan models such as the Jordan 4 and Jordan 2 see OG colorways release again. With the original Air Jordan 4 ‘Fire Red’ release being in 1989, this “newer” version was released in 2020. A more recent release was the Air Jordan 2 ‘Chicago’. The original colorway was worn by Michael Jordan during his 1986-1987 season with the Chicago Bulls. The original release is almost priceless, whilst the newer release is available at different retailers, and has a low after-market price. Want to cop these? Be sure to check out the Air Jordan 2 ‘Chicago’ here.

Air Jordan 4 Retro ‘Fire Red’

The 2020 edition of the Air Jordan 4 Retro OG ‘Fire Red’ is a faithful recreation of the colorway first released in 1989. The build includes a white leather upper with Fire Red detailing on the molded eyelets and outsole, along with visible Air sole units, Jumpman logos and Flight script graphics on the tongue patch. SKU - DC7770-160


Air Jordan 2 Retro ‘Chicago’

Celebrate the 35th anniversary of the AJ2 with this immaculate retro edition. Made to the same specs as the original, you get all the iconic details like faux lizard, no Swoosh, and the classic Nike Air and Wings logos. Fresh enough to wear to a wedding, fly enough to wear courtside—the only.




Off-White x Jordan

Another great example is the Off-White x Nike collab with Virgil Abloh releasing original colorways, with his own spin on them. The success of these sneakers speak for themself as they sold-out immediately and have a crazy after-market value. With the Air Jordan 1 High x Off-White ‘Chicago’ being valued at at least $5,500+. So if you want to revisit the past with a streetwear tone to it, these are the ultimate combination.

First reimagined Jordan 1 release

Now that we’ve talked about the re-releases, we’re going to talk about why you’re here. The reimagined releases saw their first appearance because of a leak. To be honest, no one believed the Air Jordan 1 High ‘Chicago’ we’re going to release. But when Nike confirmed it, the hype started to come. The first reimagined Jordan release was the Air Jordan 1 High ‘Chicago Lost & Found’ on November 19th 2022 for a retail price of $180. With a current after-market price of $400. 

What makes these reimagined releases so special?

Before we go deeper into other reimagined Jordan 1 releases, we need to go into detail about what makes these reimagined Jordans so special. The quick answer: Nostalgia. Nike nailed the details on these releases with the right amount of detail, making the look and feel of these reimagined sneakers perfect. You get the box in a “damaged” status with labels all around it showing the original release price. There’s even a receipt that showed the original release price of the Air Jordan 1 High ‘Chicago’. See the images below.
