This Air Jordan 1 “Chicago Crystal” Sports A Bit Of A Christmas Theme

The classic and iconicChicago” colorway returns one of Jordan Brand’s latest Air Jordan releases 2018 but with as a slight variation. Back in 1984 when Michael Jordan began his professional basketball career, Reebok had actually surpassed Nike as the number one footwear and sportswear brand. Hence, it was signing Michael Jordan and the debut of the Air Jordan 1 in 1985 that brought Nike back on top. In fact, it is the Air Jordan 1 that gave rise to the “sneaker culture” we recognize today. 33 years later, Jordan Brand is set to release a variation of one of the most classic Air Jordan 1 colorways.

One of Jordan Brand‘s upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018 has not even debuted yet but has already made its way in the resale market.

However, that does not seem to be the case here. The official release of the Air Jordan 1Rookie Of The Year” is literally just around the corner but it is already available on StockX, a deadstock and resale platform.

The Air Jordan 1 “Not For Resale” Joins 2018’s Holiday Season Releases

One of Jordan Brand‘s Holiday Season collection of Air Jordan releases 2018 will include a “Not For Resale” colorway. With this year’s Air Jordan 1Not For Resale” colorways, Jordan Brand seems to be sending a message to sneaker resellers. The fact remains though, profiteers have purchasing and reselling Air Jordan pairs on the secondary market at outrageous prices for as long as sneakerheads have been collecting. Jordan Brand may not be particularly fond of this practice, but they cannot really do anything about it. Apart from perhaps designing colorways like this upcoming Air Jordan 1 “Not For Sale” that officially hits the shelves next month.

The Air Jordan 3 “Chlorophyll” Recently Made Its Retail Debut

One of Jordan Brand‘s most recent Air Jordan releases 2018 drew inspiration from an original Nike Air Trainer 1 colorway from 1987. Although not Tinker Hatfield’s favorite (that would be the Air Jordan 11), the Air Jordan 3 was the first Air Jordan model he designed. For its 30th anniversary and Tinker Hatfield’s birthday, the Air Jordan 3 was even transformed to resemble his original sketches of the model. Coincidentally, the Nike Air Trainer 1 was also designed by Tinker Hatfield and one of its original colorways was dubbed “Chlorophyll.” The Air Jordan 3Chlorophyll,” which sports a similar color blocking and scheme, recently made its retail debut.
