Last year, Jordan fans were teased to some images of new sneakers dubbed “Homage to Home”. They combined the two iconic colorways that represent Air Jordan 1 Banned and Chicago. After the teaser, it seemed that Jordan Brand didn’t intend to release the kicks. Until now. They have now announced the release of the sneaker that had all sneaker lovers coveting. There could not be better news for their fans.
Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG

Style Code: AR9880-023
Release Date: April 21, 2018
The dubbed “Homage to Home” sneakers are now set to be released this April 2018. They bring a new style to the industry and are set to be some of the most sizzling and exciting drops from Jordan Brand.
The sneaker has all fixings of Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG is not the most notable thing about the sneaker but rather its combined colorway. It combines the “Banned” and “Chicago” colorway. Two of the most iconic colorways to ever have been released. “Banned” colorway is famous for being worn by MJ in the ’85 dunk and arguably the sneaker that led to the rise of sneakers. On the other hand, “Chicago” brings in the great colors and design.
The two colorways feature on the upper of the sneaker creating a split in the middle with each color theme taking a side. This creates a combination of two classics in one new, creative piece.
These colorway elements make the sneaker White, Red and Black. Its tongue has a Nike Air branding with the original construction. The look is completed with a White midsole and Red outsole.
The sneakers will be available in 21st April just in time for Spring and in a time when we see Air Jordan release some of the best sneakers of all time. And the “Homage to Home” will definitely make the cut for the best Spring sneakers.
They will be available in select Nike stores and online. They are expected to retail at $ 190. A deserving price for a two in one sneaker. Every sneaker finder will be setting their eyes on the sneaker and look to get one for themselves.
When the sneakers first appeared in mainstream last year, sneaker finders got all excited about the prospect of Air Jordan releasing them. The year 2017 finally ended without hearing a word from Air Jordan and Jordan lovers had no choice but to forget it. Little did they know it was lined up for a big Jordan release 2018. In the most prime time for Air Jordan lovers when we see Jordan Brand throw in all their big guns at the fans.
While sneaker finders might be spoilt for choice this April, the new drop in the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG line will surely be one to check out for. A must add to the Air Jordan fan collection.
The “Banned” and “Chicago” classics will forever be remembered for the marks they left when they were released and while we may never see them rereleased, we will always have new “Homage to Home” to honor the two legendary shoes with the one iconic one.
