The Air Jordan 1 High ’85 “Reverse Shadow” Releases in 2025

Air Jordan 1 85 Reverse Shadow HV6674-020

Jordan Brand is bringing out the “Reverse Shadow” colorway yet again in 2025, this time in the form of the Air Jordan 1 ’85, for the silhouette’s fortieth anniversary. No official information is available yet, but they will likely echo the OG unreleased sample and 2021 style closely.

Jordan Brand’s current top-tier version of the AJ1, the ’85 edition, has been their canvas to launch some iconic styles of the legendary sneaker, a fair few of which have never seen a public release, or at least a retro since their releases in 1985 and 1986. One of these styles just got a rumored release in 2025; the “Reverse Shadow” pair, originally sampled but never released with the first wave of Michael Jordan’s first signature shoe. The color scheme, which flips the grey and black panels of the OG Shadow look, did get a release back in 2021 with the standard-issue variant of the AJ1 High OG. Now, the remastered, retooled ’85 edition will be taking on the color palette to engineer the shoe as closely as possible to its original format.


Jordan Brand’s next release of a “Reverse Shadow” Air Jordan 1 High has not been announced for release yet, but is currently rumored to arrive sometime in Summer 2025. The ’85 edition of the silhouette will likely be available in limited supply, releasing from Nike’s SNKRS platform and select retailers for an expected $200. Check out the original sample below and the mock-up above for a better idea of what to expect, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more Jordan release news, like the “Oxidized Green” AJ1 Low coming soon.
