Last year, right at the peak of Spring, Jordan Brand and Dior essentially broke the internet with the unveil of their collaborative Air Jordan 1. With near everyone entering raffles, engaging on social media, and pleading to the all-seeing beings of sneaker culture, the shoe was no doubt the most exciting release of 2020.
And as it stands today, according to rumors and whispers, it seems we may see multiple sequels either this year or the next, including a “Chicago,” “Royal,” and White/Black colorway. In construction, we can expect the same level of quality as the original. Italian leathers will of course dress both overlays and unders, while Dior insignia lays across the outsole and possibly the Swoosh as well. What’s more, one of the aforementioned iterations will come only in women’s sizing.
If you forgot what the Dior x Air Jordan 1 looked like, take a peek at the above lead image once more. If further updates surface later in the year, expect to hear about it right here.

New Dior Air Jordan 1s will reportedly be released in new colourways.
The special edition shoe which combines the luxury designer fashion house with the classic Nike silhouette was highly sought after during its first drop, with sneakerheads needing to rely on raffles and resales to secure a pair.
Now, according to online rumours, the Dior Air 1 Jordan collaboration is set to return, this time in new colourways called Chicago, Royal and Black.
Twitter user Mr Unloved1s, a credible Jordan historian tweeted: “Ok so a few months ago @twojskicks said: Dior is doing a Chicago, Royal, and white and black aj1s.
“From some more whispers out there, same thing, except no white and black, just an all-white pair. One of these 3 is women’s sizes only. Hopefully we hear more soon.”
The original Dior Air Jordan 1’s can currently be found on reseller sites, starting from £4,934 on StockX or £6,300 on Laced.
