At the begin of pandemic 2020, last March marked the return of the renown silhouette – Air Jordan Hi 85 – which since the announcement has seen 3 colorway changes. Recently, the favorited rendition sees a 2022 iteration of the classic silhouette, the next being this three-toned Air Jordan 1 Hi ‘85 “Georgetown” colorway.
This release was first seen back in October of last year, but detailed shots of the pair have now surfaced. As you can guess from the namesake, it’s the Hoya-inspired colors that take the lead here, the most dominant being a “College Navy” hue that dresses up the smooth leather overlays, Swooshes ankle flaps and Nike Air logos on the tongues and the ball-and-wings markings. Arriving closely behind are the heightened collars and quarter panels which are done up in “Summit White,” and further contrasts are found atop the pre-yellowed tongues and creamy shoe laces that spruce up the sneakers with a vintage effect. Crisp white midsoles and navy treading strings together its collegiate design.
The official launch date for these is still under wraps, but it’s likely they’ll be dropping via SNKRS and other retailers for $200 USD in the coming months.
