In 1985, the Air Jordan 1 “Chicago” set the tone for iconic color schemes in the Air Jordan Retro series. Now, we revisit two notable models, the Air Jordan 2 and the Air Jordan 10, both showcasing the enduring “Chicago” blocking.

The recently reissued Air Jordan 2 “Chicago” in 2022 faithfully replicates the original colorway, complete with its distinctive box and hangtag. Diverging from the AJ1, the AJ2 omits the Swoosh branding, opting for faux lizard skin overlays and a TPU heel counter. A white leather upper pairs with a black midsole, accented with red pops around the heel. The Wings logo takes center stage on the tongue, while enhanced cushioning comes from a polyurethane midsole featuring encapsulated Nike Air in the heel.

Fast forward to 2012, and the Air Jordan 10 “Chicago” made a comeback, retaining its OG charm from 1995. The construction stayed true to the original with a white tumbled leather upper and bold black contrasts on the collar, tongue, and midsole. The black rubber outsole, adorned with red stripes, bears inscriptions highlighting Michael Jordan’s early career achievements.
