UPDATE NOVEMBER 17, 2023: Hiroshi Fujiwara continues his streak at sharing early looks of 1985 remakes by giving us an early look at next year’s Air Jordan 1 Low “Metallic Blue.” In late 2019, Fijuwara was the first to provide sneakerheads a glimpse of the 2020 “New Beginnings” pack. This will be the second 85 remix of the low, following this year’s “Neutral Grey” release.
Jordan Brand will release the OG “Metallic Blue” Air Jordan 1 in the low 1985 form for the first time since the mid-80s. Sneaker Files said they expect the shoe to be released in spring 2024.
Although Jordan Brand gives the silhouette a modern makeover, the sneaker is expected to have a pre-yellowed midsole and a vintage, aged look. It’ll have a white leather upper with blue accents on the Swoosh, lining, and heel.
As the name suggests, this Air Jordan 1 Low 1985 will separate itself from other Air Jordan 1 Lows on the market. The AJ 1 Low OG we’re accustomed to today blends two Jordan models: the original 1985 Air Jordan 1 and the current, remodeled Air Jordan 1 Low. However, given the name, we expect the Air Jordan 1 Low 85 to have a shape closer to its ancestor with a retooled toebox and Swoosh while retaining the heel shape.
We don’t have official images of the Air Jordan 1 Low 85 “Metallic Blue,” but it will look similar to the earlier silhouette.
