Rumors have surfaced that Jordan Brand’s Summer 2022 lineup will include a “Heritage” Nike Air Jordan 1 High. We know, we’re nearly a year out from any official drops, but the pair in question will reportedly have similar color blocking to the highly popular fragment x Travis Scott AJ1 High, so forgive us for getting a little excited.
The Nike Air Jordan 1 “Heritage” features a red and white makeup, with a red toe box and ankle strap. The mudguard and quarter panel are kept white, while the Swoosh and heel are red. Black on the ankle collar and laces completes a remixed combination of one of Jordan Brand’s most iconic colorways.
Although only mockups of what the sneaker could look like exist at the moment, it’s not hard to believe that Nike will try and tap in on the hype created by the three-way collaboration by offering sneakerheads a more affordable alternative. We’ve seen it with the Mocha AJ1 and the original Travis 1s. All brands, not just Nike, have a history of cashing in on the hype with general release versions of ultra-limited sneakers.
It’s still not clear whether the color blocking will be exactly as shown in the above mock-up, and things are subject to change. Therefore, all this speculation could, eventually, be for naught. But we’re sneakerheads, and we like to get excited about the slight possibility of an upcoming drop.
Check out what we’re (very playfully) dubbing the “Chicago” Travis x fragments above, and stay tuned for more information as it comes.
