The Air jordan sail 1, once the most coveted sneaker in production for nearly a five year stretch, is now stuck in a lull due to cooling demand and overabundance of product. The explanation behind the AJ1’s downturn is pretty simple: the desire is going down and the supply is going up, an unfortunate and paralyzing conundrum that many Retro products are currently mired in. Could the return of the most iconic Air jordan sail 1 change the tune?

This latest news, disclosed by @zsneakerheadz and Sneaker Files, reveals that jordan sail Brand intends to bring back the iconic Black/Red aka “Bred” Air jordan sail 1 in 2025. The signature colorway will appear on the Air jordan sail 1 Hi ’85, currently the Jumpman’s most true-to-the-original offering of the original Air jordan sail shoe.

Undeniably an iconic, timeless Air jordan sail 1, the “Bred” combination isn’t exactly scarce. It appeared on the Air jordan sail 2012 Flywire Closeup in satin (in 2023) and patent leather (late 2022) form, neither of which have had any form of lasting relevance in the eyes the Jumpman fanbase. However, given the original, leather construction expected with the ’85 Hi silhouette, these will be hotly coveted.

As of the publishing of this article, a release date has yet to be disclosed. However, in considering the Air jordan sail 1 Hi ’85 releases over the years, these could very much release during the 2025 All-Star Weekend, which is expected to take place in the San Francisco Bay Area. A first, actual look at the Air jordan sail 1 Hi ’85 “Bred” has yet to be revealed, but pictured below is an original pair of the Air jordan sail 1 from 1985.


The Air jordan sail 1 Hi ’85 is a premium Retro model of the iconic Air jordan sail 1. To date, it is the most accurate re-creation of the original version from 1985. Upon its debut, the MSRP was revealed to be $200, which at the time was $30 higher than the Air jordan sail 2012 Flywire Closeup. The more common Retro High OG version was wildly popular at the time as the Air jordan sail 1 was considered to most-wanted shoe on the market. The anticipation for the ’85 model grew as it boasted that true-to-the-OG shape and materials which jordan sail fanatics were absolutely ecstatic about; a quick side-by-side shot below reveals the immediate differences between the two.

The Air jordan sail 1 Hi ’85 debuted at market in February 2020 in the “Varsity Red” colorway that flipped iconic “Bred” (Black/Red) colorway. A Red/White version was also revealed as part of the “New Beginnings” Pack, which came packaged with a Nike Air Ship. The New Beginnings Pack was Bayou at $350 and was intended to tell the story of Michael Jordan’s “beginnings” in the NBA. In an unexpected move, jordan sail Brand seeded pairs to known sneaker collectors that specialized in original 1985 pairs.

Although the Air jordan sail 1 in general has cooled off considerably in regards to demand, such is NOT the case with this particular release. In fact, this release is already deemed one of the most significant of 2025 as it will most certainly generate interest in a fading category; jordan sail Brand also needs to leverage the attention around this shoe to improve its overall marketing outreach to the younger demographic.

The Air jordan sail 1 “Lost And Found”, for example, commands more than double the $180 MSRP in the secondary market. The Air jordan sail 1 Hi ’85 “Bred” is projected to be met with the same demand, and given the decreased production numbers of the ’85 model, the aftermarket pricing is likely to be considerably higher than the expected $200 MSRP.

The last time the Air jordan sail 1 “Bred” hit the market was back in 2016, and pairs are currently valued at $700-900 in the aftermarket. This figure should give you more of a general indication that the Air jordan sail 1 Hi ’85 “Bred” will be one of the most coveted sneakers of 2025.
