A Rare Look at the Jordan Chicago

September 27th, 2014 by | No comments

jordan chicago 1 A Rare Look at the Jordan Chicago

Have you ever seen this strange Air Jordan 1-looking shoe before? The pair is a prototype that’s been billed as the “Nike Chicago” and the “Jordan Chicago” and that has a couple of different stories attached to it as far as the origin is concerned. For the most part, reports pin them as an alternate to the Air Jordan 1 or the Air Jordan 2 – the former makes a bit more sense given the low odds of Nike coming up with such a similar sequel for MJ’s second shoe (Then again, maybe that’s why they never made it past the prototype stage). Continue reading for a better peek at this incredible piece of Air Jordan history and let us know in the comments if you like the design.

Air Jordan 1 OG “Hoyas” from 1985

air jordan 1 hoyas Air Jordan 1 OG Hoyas from 1985

You know all about the “Hoyas” Nike Terminator, but how much do you know about this original Air Jordan 1-looking pair that was also made for that school? The exact history on these is a little unclear, and they might not belong in the Air Jordan category proper due to a technicality regarding them predating that shoe (Also you’ll notice a lack of actual Air Jordan 1 branding). The story goes that the Hoyas shoe here was made for Georgetown to wear in lieu of the Dunk back in 85, but the design was instead used for MJ’s first signature. Have another look at this rare piece of Air Jordan history below and let us know if you think Nike should bring these back.

This isn’t your average, everyday pair of “Royal” Nike Air Foamposite Ones.

That detail is definitely a pretty miniscule one, but we’re sure some serious Foamposite fanatics are still feeling tempted by this unicorn of a pair (The pair of course also has the hidden detail of that sample tag). Flip through the images below to further take in this Foamposite sample and then bid on them yourself from lilshk54321 on eBay.

There are certain pairs of Air Jordans that are just too historically important to be put through the rigors of everyday wear. We’d say this pair of the Air Jordan 3 “White/Cement” is one of those, as the pair is an original, game worn one straight from the rotation of Michael Jordan. What’s more, they’ve got his autograph across the side – and this particular auction even comes with the crucial certificate of authenticity. Take a look at this archival pair of Jordans with us after the break and then check out the asking price from worldcollectablesunlimited on eBay.

We know you’re excited about the pending return of the Nike Air Command Force in all its original glory, but lets not forget about some of the other pumped up pairs that Nike had during that era. For example: the Nike Air Force 180 High, a shoe that’s a little bit confusing in terms of nomenclature given that Barkley’s 180s are now known by the Nike Air Force 180 moniker with these taking the “Mid” suffix. Continue reading to get a glimpse at an original, only slightly cracked pair in the Emerald colorway and then see how much this archive piece will cost you from souliisole on eBay.

air jrodan 5 white fire red michael jordan original Original Air Jordan 5 White/Fire Red Autographed by Michael Jordan

When the Air Jordan 5 in this white/black-fire red colorway showed up in 1990, it didn’t have the “23″ embroidery. And when it showed up in 2013, it didn’t have the “23″ embroidery. The exception to that rule though was Michael Jordan, whose original pairs of this sneaker did indeed have that jumbo stitching on the backside. Shown here is one of his pairs that’s found its way online, complete with some signatures from the man himself. Stay with us after the break to see more on this piece of Air Jordan history and then bid on them from jordanvault on eBay.
