Although basketball legend Michael Jordan played for the University of North Carolina, Jordan Brand will reference another institution for the next Air Jordan 1 release.

According to @zSneakerheadz’s recent Instagram post, a new “Georgetown” colorway of MJ’s beloved signature shoe will hit shelves next year. The sneaker leak social media account also shared a brief look at the forthcoming style on social media, which revealed that the style is dressed in Georgetown University’s team colors.

The Air Jordan 1 High ’85 “Georgetown” is executed with a gray-based leather upper that’s contrasted by navy overlay panels including on the Swoosh branding. The look of the shoe is brought together with a white tongue, gray shoelaces, white midsole and a navy rubber outsole.

This style will also utilize the ’85 version of the shoe, which means that the silhouette is closer to the original Jordan 1 releases from 1985 including an upper with a higher cut and thicker leather. It’s also worth noting that the shoe doesn’t appear to feature Georgetown branding on the shoe confirming the style is modeled after the Jordan Brand-sponsored college.

Per @zSneakerheadz, the Air Jordan 1 High ’85 “Georgetown” will be released in February 2022 at Nike.com and at select Jordan Brand retailers. The shoe will come with a $200 price tag. While a first look and the early release info of the shoe were shared by the aforementioned account, the release has not been announced by Jordan Brand.
