Some call it the Air Jordan 1.5, others know it better as the Air Jordan 1 Retro High The Return. The Jordan Brand high top, which features the Air Jordan 1 upper and Air Jordan 2 outer sole, returns soon in a “Gorge Green” colorway.

“During the 1985/1986 season, a broken foot couldn’t deny His Airness with a playoff push. Deciding between shoes, the Air Jordan 2 featured more support and cushioning but the Air Jordan 1 was what he was more comfortable in. Finding a common ground for his return, the Air Jordan 1 High The Return was created. Featuring the upper of the Air Jordan 1 and the tooling of the Air Jordan 2, this colorway is inspired by the team he faced in his first game back.”

Look out for the release of the Air Jordan 1 Retro High The Return “Gorge Green” on December 12 for $150.
