While 2019 was a flurry of collaborations and high profile releases, it seems that Jordan brand is going back to their archives with some of the releases this year. With the classic Jordan 1 becoming one of the most sought after retros in recent years, it’s nice to see that Jordan Brand is paying homage to the original with this release. The shape of this model is the closest to date we’ve gotten to the original ’85 classic. This flipped variation plays off the classic ‘Black/Red’ colorway seen on the banned Jordan 1s. The sneaker has gone to great lengths to preserve the feeling of the original, even re-creating the hang tags that was featured on the sneakers upon their original release. Jordan brand had to go back to their archives to find the original photo of MJ in order to recreate the look of that paper tag. These are sure to be high sought after and even more so considering their release is limited to a mere 23,000 pairs. Look for more release details to leak prior to their release in February.

In the new year, it seems that Nike has renewed its focus on the classic Blazer model. Giving it proper attention means that Nike is set to released a Mid 77 Vintage version of the mode, in a “Lucid Green and Sail White” colorway. The sneaker attempts to re-capture the details of the original, down to the tongue and midsole. The grey suede really adds something to an otherwise clean color way. It’s nice to see that Nike is starting the year out with a focus on both their archives as well as new sneakers.

The aforementioned sneaker will hit the shelves of select Nike retailers including SJS at a retail of $100.

The colors used take inspiration from the Windrunner, Lahar and Air Force III from that pack, but give it a modern feel with the nylon upper. Size? even shot a custom editorial to go with the release.  The retail for these is  £115 USD and be available on November 29 from the Size? webshop and app.
