Reviving Originality: The Air Jordan 1 '85 Evolution

Jordan Brand has been on a mission to perfect the iconic Air Jordan 1 silhouette over the past decade, aiming to recapture its essence from its 1985 debut. The Air Jordan 1 '85 version, available in both high-top and low-top renditions, stands as the closest iteration to the original. Despite the waning popularity of the Air Jordan 1 OG style, the '85 releases continue to captivate fans, showcasing Jordan Brand's commitment to heritage. Last October, Jordan Brand ventured into new territory with the introduction of the Air Jordan 1 Low 85 in the Neutral Grey colorway, followed by the recent debut of the Air Jordan 1 Low 85 Metallic Blue. Now, for Spring 2025, Jordan Brand is set to revive a classic AJ 1 colorway, reimagining it in the form of the Air Jordan 1 Low 85 for the very first time. The trend of transforming original Jordan 1 High colorways into the 85 Low cut continues to gather momentum, promising fresh excitement for enthusiasts.

A Royal Return: The Air Jordan 1 Low 85 Royal

Following mixed reviews from sneakerheads, the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Reimagined Royal failed to make the impact Jordan Brand had anticipated. The shift to an all-suede upper, departing from the original all-leather construction, left some fans longing for authenticity. However, for aficionados of the AJ 1 Low silhouette and admirers of the Royals colorway, Jordan Brand has delivered with the Air Jordan 1 Low 85 Royal. Staying true to the OG design, this iteration boasts an all-leather upper in classic black, accentuated by varsity royal highlights reminiscent of the iconic 1985 release. The vintage-inspired midsole and robust rubber outsole in royal blue complete the faithful recreation of this timeless classic.
