The Air Jordan 1 Shadow 2.0 is the second iteration of what was supposed to be an OG colorway. In 1985, there were rumors going around about a sample of this shoe. Thanks to a friend of ours on Instagram, it’s confirmed the samples did exist, though they never released. Now it’s 36 years later and we get a remastered version. Do we hear OG Jordan-heads cheering?
