It’s been 30 years since the world famous Air Jordan 1 made its debut, and this weekend, only for the second time ever, we will have a chance to get a pair of this Air Jordan 1 “Chicago” OG Retro!

With all this speculation coming from Jordan Brand regarding the “remastering” of shoes beginning this year, one question came to mind. If Jordan’s intent was to make these retros as identical a the original versions, how you you think this year’s Air Jordan 1 “Chicago” will fare against the original version from 1985. We have lots of pictures to share with you that actually compare both versions, side to side. So, what do you think? Is the “remastering” effect done on this pair, or can you tell differences from both pairs. Let us know what you think about the shoe and about the “remastering”┬ámovement Jordan is said to be doing.

P.S. Also pictured above are the Jordan 1 “Chicago” from 1994 and 2013, but to keep things less complex let’s just focus on the first and upcoming release.

Author’s Take

Truthfully, this whole “remastering” treatment from Jordan Brand is very inconsistent. Some releases come out great, others, not so much. The whole point of this “remastering” theory was to have better inspection of the shoes before they end up leaving the factory. I understand mistakes happen since that are done by actual people, but if you’re going promise something and you don’t deliver on every single pair. You’re not keeping your word, meaning that eventually consumers will begin to not believe anything you say. These consumers will begin going with someone else that can actually deliver their promises. I could go on an on, but I’ll just leave it at that.
