The Air Jordan 1 “Homage To Home,” a unique split design that draws inspiration from both the “Bred” Jordan 1s and the “Chicago” Jordan 1s, is set to see a full retail release this Saturday after a special Chicago-only version released last month. The two-piece colorway nods to the classic shoes themselves and 1985’s All-Star Weekend in Indianapolis where a rookie Jordan laced up both the “Bred” colorway to match his flight suit for the Slam Dunk Contest and the “Chicago” for the All-Star Game, marking the first and only time he would wear both shoes in a single weekend. He displayed both an air of confidence and an effortless swagger that were typically reserved for long-term NBA veterans, truly cementing his place as the next big thing in the NBA.

The shoe is neatly split into two pieces by a long stitch down the middle, with the lateral side featuring all the black and red detailing of the Jordan 1 “Bred,” while the medial side trades the dark aesthetic of the Bred 1s for the “Chicago” Jordan 1’s classic red/white black color palate. A stately white Jordan 1 midsole and red outsole, used on both OG colorways makes for a middle ground that ties the split look together. Check out our comprehensive Where To Buy list for the “Homage To Home” Jordan 1s below for your best chance at getting your hands on a pair of the unique two-piece kicks.
