Even if you aren't a certified sneaker collector, the Air Jordan 1 needs to be somewhere in your closet. If you are still sleeping on the iconic silhouette however, now is your chance to not only catch up but also gain extra credit based on colorway alone.

In all honestly, the silhouette is always available in a pretty legit range of colorways, but this pair bears a blocking that is as timeless as its build. The classic Chicago colorway balances red and white with bits of black for a style that is as lovely as the first time we ever saw it.

Unfortunately, Nike has canceled the online release of the shoe because of the bots, which has ruined the convenience of buying kicks through their digital store. So good luck copping them at your local Nike retailer.

In the end, the OG Chicago colorway is one the shoe you should really have in the arsenal.
