Comparisons - 1985, 1994, 2013, & 2015 Chicago I's

Back in 2013, Jordan Brand retroed the Chicago I's but with the non-original treatment. Two years later, Jordan Brand finally retros the iconic and beloved Chicago I's with the original Nike Air treatment. I have the 1985, 1994, and 2013 pairs and I thought it would be great to see the comparison leading up to this weekends release. Lets take a look in comparison with all four pairs. Kindly enjoy these photos.

thanks for the comparison pics. And like most, I wasn't able to get a pair of 2015 Jordan 1 but was fortunate to get a pair of 2013s when they were first released. But would have loved to have OG Jordan 1 Chicago's in my collection.
thx again!
