Here we are, back to the roots. Don’t get us wrong, we love new and inventive colorways. We also love colorways that tribute other colorways. However, Retros will always hold a special place in our sneakerhead hearts. And this time, it’s 1985’s black and white Jordan 1 taking center stage! So what do we know about this release? And how should you prep when release day comes? Read on to find that out and take a look at previous ‘85 retros we love!
1985 Retros Are the Best Headliners
2020 was a pretty eventful year on many levels. But when it comes to sneakers, it was a really big hit with so many great releases. And one of the best releases of that year was the New Beginnings pack. That pack re-introduced the Nike Air Ship, and with it, we got the Jordan 1 ‘85 New Beginnings. But that wasn’t all, because 2020 also brought the Air Jordan 1 ‘85 Varsity Red. And these babies are currently worth $488 on average in resale!
From then on, the 1985 Jordan reissues became a tradition! In February 2021, Jordan Brand gave us the Jordan 1 ‘85 Neutral Grey, which is worth $280 on resale. And in April 2022, we got the very nice-looking Jordan 1 ‘85 Georgetown. Now, these are worth $373 on average on the aftermarket. Now, 2023 is the fourth year in a row in which we get an ‘85 retro, and this time it’s the black and white Jordan 1!
Black and White Jordan 1 ‘85 – Lookin’ Good!
Let’s be real here, retros, especially the ones that stay true to OGs, live in our heads rent-free. And what’s better than another one to complete your sneaker collection? The black and white Jordan 1 ‘85 is an OG that features a white leather base and black overlays and Swoosh. It kinda makes sense thanks to the kicks’ name, add to that the fact that they also go by Panda AJ1s! So these babies will be as true to the 1985 pair as they come, including all the OG details like the toe box.
The upcoming black and white Jordan 1 ‘85 will drop on February 15, 2023, and will retail for $200. It’s a bit higher than your average Jordan 1, but it’s the price mark for the 1985 retros! And well, judging by the resale of previous installations, these will definitely be worth it. In fact, the 2014 retro of these babies is currently worth $884 on average, which says a lot!
How to Get the Black and White Jordan 1?
So the kicks will drop on Nike SNKRS and select retailers. But well, everyone will be lining up to catch these babies, so you’ll need some help. And that help will come in the form of a Nike bot!

In addition to that, NSB3 is rolling out soon, and it’ll include huge upgrades and a Nike module! So get your copy today to take the first step into the future of sneaker botting. Godspeed
