Rumor has it that Dior and Jordan Brand are planning to build out their existing Nike Air Jordan 1 collaboration in the near future. According to @mr_unloved1s, Dior and JB will be releasing “Chicago” and “Royal” versions of their collaborative Nike Air Jordan 1.

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. pic.twitter.com/uyHjy54BSv

The news follows rumors from Urban Necessities founder Jaysse Lopez, who had claimed that there would be three colorways: “Chicago,” “Royal,” and Black and White. @mr_unloved1s has now revealed that the first two will be happening alongside an all-white pair instead of white and black, and that one of the three colorways is set to be released in women’s sizing only.
Dior and Jordan Brand dropped the co-branded Nike Air Jordan 1 last year after revealing it in late 2019. The sneaker featured Dior’s signature grey on the paneling, while the fashion house’s monogram logo was present on the tongue and the slightly oversized Swoosh.
The sneakers retailed for over $2,000 and instantly became one of the most valuable sneakers on the resell market. They were released in high and low form and were both extremely limited.
No images of the new, rumored colorways of the Dior x Nike Air Jordan 1s exist just yet. Mockups are floating around that have changed the color of the grey paneling, leaving the monogram Swoosh intact. It’s unclear if that will be what the supposed collaborative sneakers look like — or whether they’ll be released at all.
Until Jordan Brand or Dior confirm anything, these are just rumors, though it’s worth being said that they are coming from reputable industry insiders, rather than the normal leak accounts, which could add some weight to the rumors.
As always, stay tuned for more information.
