In 2010, we celebrated the 25th Anniversary of the sneaker that changed the footwear industry forever – the Air Jordan I. The iconic model is a staple in the sneaker community, continuing to drop in new colorways each year. However, have you ever wondered what the Air Jordan I would have looked like had it dropped in modern times?

The Jordan Brand has explored that concept with their newest release, the Jordan Evolution ’85. The shoe breathes new life into the fundamental performance principles of the original Air Jordan with updated technology. The lightweight shoe is constructed with full-grain leather and ballistic mesh. Lockdown fit is provided by an integrated web lacing system and support straps. Full-length Air is encased within Phylon sculpted midsole, while an elephant printed TPU heel counter enhances rollover protection. Finishing up below is an updated Air Jordan outsole, including multi-directional herringbone traction and strategic flex grooves.

Set for a January 10th release, you can reserve three colorways of the Jordan Evolution ’85 here at Eastbay today.
