Update | Air Jordan 1 High 85 Georgetown

[Update 10 July 2021] We have some exciting news from Jordan Brand for you. Sneaker Insider @zsneakerheadz has found out that another Jordan 1 '85' will be released in early 2022. We check out all the details so far and take a first look at the Air Jordan 1 High 85 Georgetown. Stay tuned!

So that everyone is on the same level, we will briefly explain the differences between the various Jordan 1 models: The Jordan 1 series is actually differentiated between the High, Mid and Low variants. The J1 Low variant is a low-top sneaker and more suitable for summer. The High models are close to the original Jordan 1 from 1985 and are therefore the most popular. The Mid models are, as the name suggests, a mixture of High and Low.

Now for a little something special about the High '85' models. The '85' series is supposed to be even closer to the OG version of the Jordan 1 from 1985. The shoe differs only in small details from the normal High variant and is, for example, slightly higher. Nike is paying a lot for this and wants to charge €30 more for the 85s, i.e. €200 in retail. Let's take a look at the shoes here.

The details of the Air Jordan 1 High 85 Georgetown

The colorway is inspired by the Air Jordan 1 High Georgetown Hoyas sample from 1985, and the fact that the kicks also come in an 85 version makes the shoes pretty special. The colorway is a mix of 'College Navy', 'Summit White' and 'Tech Grey'. The colour-matched rubber sole in navy and a white shoe tongue are also visible.

On the mock up you can also see the Air Jordan Wings logo in white. The white midsole also adds a colour contrast. The typical Nike Air label on the tongue is also part of this release. Below you can compare the 85 Georgetown version, which is expected to be released in 2022, with the Hoyas sample.

When can you expect the shoes?

Allegedly, the Air Jordan 1 High 85 Georgetown are planned for February 2022. Unfortunately, there is no official release date yet, but presumably the kicks will be released via the Nike SNKRS app and, as already mentioned, will cost 200€ in retail. You can also try your luck at the usual retailers via Raffle or FCFS. Our release calendar will keep you up to date.

The weekly releases have made the sneaker market a little quieter, so let's see how much hype there will be for the shoes in February 2022 and whether you can even buy them for a reasonable resell price.

So far, two colorways of the Jordan 1 High 85 variant have been released and especially the Jordan 1 High 85 'Neutral Grey' released in February 2021 is still very popular. So we can expect something similar with the Georgetown colorway.
