It’s been ten years since Michael Jordan was inducted into the Basketball Hall Of Fame, so Jordan Brand is nodding to their leading man’s crowning achievement with a new Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG, dubbed the “Fearless.” Calling upon a premium patent leather construction, these Air Jordan 1s then split their overlay detailing evenly between colors from the two most important stops of MJ’s legendary career. Chicago Bulls-style red graces the front, and UNC Tar Heels-style powder blue/navy blue is splashed across the Swoosh/heel. A jeweled ball-and-wings logo on the collar flaps that keen-eyed observers might recognize from a handful of memorable Air Jordan 1 Mids adds extra classic detail, and the insole features a bold “FEAR” text hit with a slash through it above repeating text print, a nod to Mike’s HOF speech, in which he stated “Limits, like fear, are often just an illusion.” A timeless white midsole and red outsole then complete the look. This homage-filled design is set to release during holiday 2019, and there’s also reportedly an alternate black-based “UNC to Chicago” women’s colorway that’ll arrive early 2020 as well. Keep it locked to our Jordan Release Dates page for further info as it’s available, and enjoy a set of images directly below in the meantime.
