The new Air Jordan I “Homage To Home”, which teased months ago, is releasing this Saturday the 19th of May. The shoe follows a similar design as the Air Jordan I “Top Three”, which dropped in November 2016 mashing up three of the most iconic Air Jordan I’s colorways: “Banned”, “Chicago” and “Royal”.
This new release only mixes the two itinerations that present the colors of the city of Chicago, and consequently the colors of their best and legendary player Michael Jordan. So are the “Chicago” and “Banned” colorways cutting the shoe in half.

This new Retro Air Jordan already came out in April as a Chicago exclusive, limited to 2300 pairs. Although the shoes looked exactly the same as the ones releasing now, they had small differences: they included a branding feature on each heel with the words “FROM” and “FOR” and were individually numbered.
