Throughout its 36-year history, the Air Jordan 1 has told the on and off-court story of the man behind it. Recently, a look at a pair scheduled for February 2022 has emerged, showcasing the colors of Omega Psi Phi, the fraternity Michael Jordan joined in 1987. Clad in hits of purple and gold, the high-top pair is reminiscent of Los Angeles Lakers-related footwear the Swoosh has previously released, as well as 2020’s Día de Muertos Air Jordan 1 Mid. The brighter of the sneaker’s two principal tones take over the toe box, ankle flaps and bottom heel panels, as well as tongue label and outsole. The remainder of #23’s first signature sneaker, then, is divided between the Que-approved purple and a white that allows the 1911-founded fraternity’s colors revel in the spotlight.
