What’s Left of the Original Air Jordans?
The idea of an un-retroed Air Jordan release was something that had sneakerheads salivating a few years ago. It still does, and perhaps to an even greater extent now, because there are even fewer remaining these days. Jordan Brand has given the people what we want and recently resurrected some of those long lost classics; highly anticipated drops like the ‘Powder Blue’ Air Jordan X and ‘Bordeaux’ VII leave the list of one-and-done originals shorter than at any point since the brand first dabbled in bringbacks back in 1994.
By our count (excepting the-oft modified Air Jordan 1 and its offspring), there are a total of 15 yet-to-be-retroed colorways, at least three of which are slated to release later this year (Powder Blue X and both Air Jordan 6s). Let’s examine this collection of unearthed gems starting with the earliest and going up through the last model MJ wore with the Bulls (the XIV being the latest Air Jordan to have retroed — CDPs not withstanding). The list starts with the second Air Jordan and takes us all the way through the second three-peat:
