On-Foot Looks // Air Jordan 1 High OG “Lost and Found”
When we ask for something it seems that Jordan Brand only half-delivers what we want. Want the Cherry and Taxi 12s? Here are the “Twist” and “Reverse Taxi” releases. You want a return of the OG Air Jordan 1 “Bred” and “Chicago” — have a “Reimagined” release. Yes, the Air Jordan 1 High “Chicago” will be returning in 2022 — but not as you’d expect.
No, it won’t’ be patent like the “Reimagined” Bred release, instead, the Air Jordan 1 High OG “Chicago” will receive an aged-look aesthetic for 2022. Though not confirmed, it likely indicated that vintage hits could likely come in the form of distressed and worn-in leathers, and pre-yellowed soles to give the sneaker a decades-old feel.
Update 06.02.22 // A first teaser look at the Air Jordan 1 High OG “Chicago” Reimagined AKA “Lost & Found” has confirmed the vintage hits, with cracked leathers featuring throughout, along with Muslin-tinted tongues and soles. Grab a first look at the release here below, and expect to see full looks at the release soon.

Update 08.09.22 // According to @zSneakerheadz, the release of the Air Jordan 1 High OG “Lost & Found” AKA “Chicago” Reimagined” has been moved from October 29th to November 19th.
Update 08.09.22 // New images of the pair’s accompanying packaging has revealed that the release will earn a new “Lost & Found” moniker, as it honors retro Mom and Pop athletic shops of the 1980s; an era in which you could find OG hoops shoes for at low, low discounts. Yes, those same stores that Nike has continued to cut out of product for the past decade in their move to direct-to-consumer sales; how ironic.
The story of the release hints at an old pair bought way back when, which was lost in storage and then refound, complete with purchase receipt — it even rocks a replacement AJKO orange lid; the thought process to this pair’s story is second to none.
See for yourself below, and expect to learn more about the release and the story as we edge closer to it’s release this November.
