YankeeKicks knows how you can cop this year’s most hyped release. Marcus Jordan’s TROPHY ROOM x Air Jordan 1 High OG SP “Chicago” colorway carries the weight on one of the NBA’s most legendary rumors. His father’s earliest, and at the time, most note-worthy flex during the 1985 NBA Showcase.

Rumor has it…

Micahel Jordan, the 12th ever rookie to start in the game, had worn his warm-ups and gold necklaces during the 1st night of the showcase. Rumor has it this prompted several NBA players to “Freeze Out” Michael in an effort to put him in his place. However, quite the opposite happened. In the course of 22 minutes, Jordan scored 7 points on 2-of-9 shooting, got 3-of-4 from the free-throw line, grabbed 6 rebounds, and made 2 assists.

Word is the showcase empowered Michael, who pushed himself further with each game he played. This story is told on the novelty Showcase tickets that accompany the AJ 1 Highs recreated in a lux Chicago Bulls colorway; welcoming the wearer to the family. As TROPHY ROOM relays, Marcus asked his father whether or not the legend is true. As it turns out, they can neither confirm nor deny the tale’s authenticity. But, you have to admit, the “Freeze Out” is one hell of a story. AJ 1 High SP Chicago DA2728-100 White/Varsity Red/Sail/Black AJ 1 High SP DA2728-100 White/Varsity Red/Sail/Black

The look…

Marcus Jordan’s take on the classic Jordan 1 silhouette reflects this 35-year-old legend with the addition of a frosted vinyl glitter topcoat covering all of the vibrant Varsity Red overlays. Meanwhile, the White tumbled leather overlays remain untouched. “Rumor has it…” comes sewn into the medial ankle of the Black sockliner in White thread. More Black hits the high-profile leather collar, debossed Jordan Wings Nike quarter Swoosh, and preset laces.

Vintage Sail makes up the Air-Sole unit, leading down to a frosted translucent rubber outsole revealing Red and Blue stars underneath. An additional set of Varsity Red laces providing optimal styling choices to one of the lucky 12,000 who manages to cop a pair when they drop on the Anniversary of the legendary showcase on February 10th, 2021.
