Shoes 9 months ago Share Tweet Pin Share Jordan Brand is gearing to release its AJ1 Rebel in the classic “Chicago” colorway, initially revealed in March. The new rendition of the timeless red/black/white color scheme features its controversial twisted lacing system that extends all the way up its lateral sides. Besides the unorthodox fitment, the women-centric silhouette also utilizes a medial zipper for easy entrance — the lacing system is therefore more of a visual feature than a functional one. A black leather swoosh, white toe box, embossed wings and Jumpman insole remain true to the original “Chicago,” while an addition of a large Nike Air hit on the medial provides a new look.

For another alternative to the original “Chicago” AJ1, Nike has released photos of a mid version as well with the classic colorway.
