The Nike Air Jordan 1 High ’85 “Bred” Has a Release Date

Expected to feature its original 1985 build.


[Update 17 May 2024] Nothing is quite as iconic as the Nike Air Jordan 1 High ’85 “Bred”, save for another OG colorway of the silhouette.

With the rumor mill alluding to next year’s release being a 1:1 recreation of the original ’85, the titular pair will easily be one of 2025’s biggest releases—and will arrive in both men’s and TD sizes. Stay tuned for more details and images in the coming months!

[Update 26 Apr 2024] The wait is long but knowing when its end is, is a consolation. The legendary Nike Air Jordan 1 High ’85 “Bred”, easily one of the biggest releases in 2025, will hit shelves on 14 February. But continue to stay tuned! As soon as an update or new images surface, you’ll find them here at this very page.


First released in 1985, the iconic “Bred” colorway of the Nike Air Jordan 1 High has remained in the pantheon of footwear in the four decades since. The archetypal silhouette’s Black and Varsity Red palette symbolized rebellion and style, further propelled by the apocryphal story of it being banned by the NBA for violating uniform regulations.

The rumor mill has the Nike Air Jordan 1 High ’85 “Bred” returning in Spring 2025, in lieu of its 40th anniversary. The retro release promises to be a faithful recreation of the original, in contrast to the “Reimagined” motif employed in recent years.

Expect the OG color-blocking addressing its premium Black leather base accented with Varsity Red. The taller silhouette with a larger Swoosh stays true to its 1985 build, differentiating it from its Retro High OG counterpart. A White midsole rounds out the aesthetic, with each pair arriving with extra laces and a hangtag.

Considering it’s a full year away from release, details are scant at this time. Nonetheless, stay tuned for more information and images to surface in the coming months! Till then, enjoy the mockup in the gallery above, courtesy of zSneakerHeadz and Sneaker Files.
