The Air Jordan 1 “Homage to Home” is unique with its Jekyll-and-Hyde color-blocking. The shoe is almost precisely 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.
The two-piece colorway is a tribute to both of these legendary staples of the sneaker industry. It was at 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.
The shoe is expected to release tomorrow on May 18th for a suggested retail price of $160. What are your thoughts? Check out the pics below and tune into The Jordan Rack for more news and product availability on our site.
