Originally released in small numbers, anyone who fell in love with the Air Jordan 1.5 should be glad to know you have got a second chance to own these babies. “The Return” is indeed returning to all Jordan Brand stores, carrying with it the unique combination of Air Jordan 1 and Air Jordan 2.
Air Jordan 1.5 The Return
Color:Sand Dune/Gorge Green-White-University Red
Release Date:December 12, 2015
Here is what you should know about the 1.5 – it makes use of the Air Jordan 1 silhouette topped by the Air Jordan 2, creating a unique blending between two iconic shoes. Sneaker News has released images of the famed hybrid, showcasing the kind of colors that is meant to appeal to everyone.
The hybrid is high, covering the ankles and sporting Sand Dune leather with Nike clear intending to make “The Return” a classic. On the sides, we have got the Swoosh logo which seems to be made from a 3rd material, creating a raised design that just pops out of the screen.
The laces are Sand Dune and so is the tongue. On the center, we have got the “Nike Air” lettering together with the iconic Swoosh logo below – all of which are done in eye-popping yellow. On the side is the Wings logo also done in basic Red – which is actually a little disappointing. You would have to look really closely in order to properly see the Wings logo since there is really no big definition between the two shades of color used.
Other than those, however, everything else enters the realm of classic. For example, the soles are done in basic white with zero stitching or patterns. The outsole edging is done in dirty yellow with looks to be semi-translucent at first glance.
All in all, it is a pretty sweet piece that looks like it will remain stylish for a long time. Of course, practically all Jordan Brand shoes are stylish – but this one takes the cake as it offers a unique combination of two iconic silhouettes. The colors are also timeless with Sand Dune blending in with practically anything. Obviously durable and made to last, we’re pretty sure these kicks will do you proud in court.
The Jordan Release date for The Return was on December 12 which means that it is already available in stores today! It’s not that long since the release so hopefully, Jordan Brand stores still have these on their shelves. As for the price, it’s actually cheaper than most models today at just $150. Make sure to reserve yours now and be part of history in this iconic blending!
