Every Original Air Jordan Complete Set


**Updated as of June 10th 2020**

My story
On July 9th 2008 I purchased my very first original Air Jordan sneaker. It was the 1985 Metallic Blue & White High 1's. 12 years later, I finally acquired the last original Air Jordan I needed to complete the set. The last sneaker happened to be the 1985 White & Grey Low 1's. The funny thing is I started with the 1's and I end it with a pair 1's.

It was a total of 86 sneakers from Air Jordan 1-14. This wasn't including any samples, prototypes, or any sneaker that I only seen in photographs or magazines that I knew existed, but were deemed as "unicorns" because of how rare they are. The sneakers I only went for were the sneakers released to the public. Like any collector who collects anything probably knows this and they have a choice to go that route or simply collect what is obtainable based on your standards.

I had standards of course. Minus the samples, prototypes, and really rare Jordans I knew of, Jordan 1-4 could be in any size and in any condition that I was okay with. If it came with the original box, that was a bonus to me. When it came to Jordans 5-14, it had to be my size with the original box. If it didn't come with the original box, it had to be a pretty good price in general. Another standard was if it wasn't in my shoe size but it was something I knew was missing, it was again the price I had to consider.

Back in 2008, the Metallic Blue & White 1's didn't retro at the time so when I first acquired my first pair of original Jordans, I always thought it was really cool to own a pair of originals. The quality, shape, material choices and overall the way they felt on my foot was different than a pair of retros. Even the way they looked. I was always curious to know if anyone ever completed 1-14 so I decided to see how far I could get.

Overall this 12 year journey was really fun. That's what it was really about. Enjoying the hunt even though it was numerous times I felt I would never complete it.

Original Jordan 1 Samples. Rare Colorways. Prototypes. Whats Real? Whats Fake? Photoshopped?

1985 Original Jordan 1's is such a mysterious sneaker. I said it was a total of 20 pairs obtainable to the public. As I mentioned, their are pairs dubbed as "unicorns" because of how rare they are, how limited they are, or simply never ever seen except in photos. This means that their are more than 20 pairs actually. One of the places I would go to would be Niketalk and ISS/Sole Collector for actual information that was reliable and legit.

You gotta remember, it's a 30+ year old sneaker with so much history. Technology wasn't good as it is today. Photos back then weren't the best quality. As the years pass by, the information gets lost, websites don't work any more and photographs get lost. The only way to get information is asking sneaker collectors back then, if they have any images saved or if they remember anything.

Originally I made this post simply to share what I have achieved over the years. Telling someone who is trying to achieve the same goal as me is doable. I decided now to make this post as a reliable and legitimate source since most websites don't work, information is out dated, and photographs get lost. As time goes by, I plan to keep this post updated as much as possible.

"Michael Jordan suffered a broken foot during the 1985-86 NBA season, causing him to miss all but 18 games. Somehow, with Jordan’s will and determination, the Bulls were still able to make it to the first round of the playoffs, where Jordan scored 63 points in game 2. Having only played 14 regular season games since returning, Jordan’s foot was still healing, and both Nike and the Bulls were cautious about letting their star return. To provide extra protection, special modifications were made to his Air Jordan 1's. That’s where this pair comes in. For game 3, MJ’s sneakers were fitted with special ankle straps, which ran through slots cut into the upper. Also, custom orthopedic inserts were added as well. As you can see in the pics below, one shoe is size 13, and the other is size 13.5. After MJ’s foot healed, it was slightly larger, hence the bigger left shoes. This is an incredible piece of history, and may be the only pair left in existence." Source Jumpmankicks

1985 Chicago 1's Nike Air logo Prototype
Legit. Very rare and only 3 pairs known to exist in the world
"I'm not 100% sure about this, but I don't believe that the original 1985 Air Jordan I was oringally designed FOR Michael Jordan...They might have just slapped on the Air Jordan logo and ran with it. It kinda makes sense if you think about it. MJ signed the dotted line in 1984, and by that time, the 1985 Nike Basketball lineup should've already been designed and established. That might explain why the Air Jordan I has a lot of similarites to a lot of the 1985 Nike Basketball shoes including the Nike Dunk, Nike Terminator, Nike Big Nike, etc. If this info is incorrect, please shoot me an e-mail...Anyways, this pair is an incredibly rare Sample pair of Air Jordan I's with the original NIKE stamp on the bold-outlined Wings logo. There are a lot of subtle differences when comparing these to the final production pair. The most noticable would be the leather that they used on the upper. The white panels are peeling due to age, while other pairs that released are still in tact. The midsole used is also slightly different. Notice on the tongue label that there isn't the "AIR" under the Swoosh, as it just has the "NIKE" on top. This is one of the rarest pairs of Air Jordan I's in existence." Source Jermaine @Phase2

“1985 Jordan 1 "Prototypes". Only 3 pairs are known to exist. They feature "NIKE" on the ankle instead of the "AIR JORDAN". Also on the tongue, there is only Nike instead of Nike Air. Nike tested the leather on this pair, and as you can see it did not hold up as well as it did on the released Jordan 1s." Source Dylan Ratner

MJ’s size 13, production date 11/08/84. A couple noticeable differences from the pairs that eventually came out in stores in 1985: more of a mid cut, huge swoosh, red liner." Source Tonyviceic

1985 Black & Gold 1's.
Before anything, I would like to mention this first because it's just as important as the photos below.

"Many knows the Air Jordan 1 Black Gold patent released in 2003, but it is not the first 1 made with this color. In fact it was inspired by a very rare pair made in 1985.
The famous Black Gold AJ1 has fueled debate among collectors not only because it is one of the rarest pairs but also because that is the number of variations and few pictures make it extremely difficult to authenticate the pairs that went for sale.
At least 5 variations are known:  gold black logo, black gold logo, gold on the back of the upper, black midsole, patent leather … Some rumors say that around twenty pairs exist, and they were made in Italy (with Italian leather). Difficult to know right from wrong, besides having access to Nike archives in Oregon. One thing is certain, twice the auctions exceeded $ 25,000 for those pairs … Probably the first Jordan Friends And Family in history." Source Wave

This information I believe is the best information that is lost. Another reason why I agree with this information was that it was very similar on Niketalk fourms as well. Also a lot of fakes showed up through Ebay auctions, personal sellers and posted through the message boards. They were always deemed fake because it never line up correctly with any other 1985 Jordan 1 models when doing a legit check.

For myself, I believe the first three images below of the 1985 Black & Gold 1's in this Japanese magazine are the real pairs. I could be wrong but I have yet to see any others line up correctly compared to these three images.

Another Patent Black & Gold 1's with a black midsole. 
It's hard to determine what's real and fake with this pair specially. These two images below are old images saved from Niketalk archives.  

Another image that could the same 1's held by the person above.
Again it's hard to determine what is real and what is fake. My only question is why is the Air Jordan logo is a different shade of gold? Original 1's never had mismatched color Air Jordan logo. 
Image via Hoopsvibe

This is from another Japanese magazine. You can see an original pair of 1985 Shadow 1's next to the 1985 Black & Gold 1's. If you compare the two side by side with just the images in the magazine, you can clearly see how the Black & Gold shape, height, swoosh, logo is off.
For those reasons, these are considered fake.

1985 Purple & Yellow "Lakers/Washington Huskies" Jordan 1's 
Legit. If I remember from Niketalk, one deemed these to be labeled as Washington Huskies and not Lakers but many believe these are Lakers due to the colorway. Both are correct if you ask me. A very rare pair. Some consider these as samples while some consider to only have 5-10 pairs ever existed.


1985 Georgetown Hoya Jordan 1's
Legit. Considered very rare and the number of pairs existed in the world are unknown.  
"The story goes that the Hoyas shoe here was made for Georgetown to wear in lieu of the Dunk back in 85, but the design was instead used for MJ’s first signature" 


1985/1987? Black & Red Jordan 1's with a Court Force outsole.
Legit. Originally the Nike Court Force was released in 1987. I used the Google Translate camera app to translate the bottom right image and translated "Air Jordan 1/AJ1 from everywhere, but with a different sole but this is a cover made to check the color of the upper. Ra Sample. Therefore, the sole parts were 80's before that. It was produced with half type. Reference product (Golleys)
The uppers seem to have no changes except the outsole. Very interesting and the number of pairs existed in the world are unknown.

Is it real? Is it Fake? Is it Photoshopped?

This section is where all images that are surfaced are more than likely to be dubbed as fake/photoshopped unless stated other wise. 

Fake 1985 UNC with a Dunk midsole/outsole.
- Incorrect tone of blue color
- Incorrect swoosh size. Too small
- Incorrect tongue and tongue tag. The tongue is too short and tongue tag is the wrong color as well.
- Incorrect shape and height of the sneaker.
- Incorrect laces. Wrong style and material.
- This pair seems to have a thicker padding which original Jordan 1's didn't use.
Many other reasons to consider but these are considered fake.

Fake 1985 White & Grey 1's.
- Incorrect color tone and placement on the uppers. Only one original high model that was mainly an all white upper with a grey swoosh, Air Jordan logo and outsole. This color style was introduced later as retros but never as originals.
-Incorrect lace style. Original 1's never used an oval style lace.
For those reasons, these are considered fake.

Fake 1985 Sky Jordan Chicago 1's
- Incorrect Air Jordan logo. Sky Jordans were only made in youth/smaller sizes and never in adult sizes. Also the logo placement is incorrect. It's touching the stitching and is smaller compared to a regular Air Jordan logo.
- Incorrect swoosh and white leather material uppers. The black swoosh is the wrong material. It has this ashy/smokey look over the years while original swooshes crack/peel off and doesn't have that ashy/smokey finish. The white leather uppers is a thin leather cut and also appears to show cracking while original pairs were known for the thick leather cut and didn't crack.
- Incorrect Height. Looks like a mid style finish.
- Incorrect shoe tag and insole logo. Original 1's didn't have a shoe tag stitched on the inside and was printed on the sock liner. The Nike Air logo on the insole is a different color. No original Jordan 1's had mis matched insole colors.
Many other reasons to consider but these are considered fake.

Fake 1985 Chicago 1's with a with Air Jordan logo.
This was an old photo saved from Niketalk archives. At first I thought it was a sample because of Air Jordan logo but as I looked more into it, more signs were leading to these being as fakes.
- Incorrect Air Jordan size. The Air Jordan logo is a lot smaller.
- Incorrect padding. Original 1's dont have the same thickness as shown or padding.
- Incorrect outsole. A different outsole design was used compared to original 1's.
- The first Image, you can see the left pair warping near the back and logo area. Original 1's aren't design that way and you can see if from the other image above the padding image.
- I also want to point out that the swoosh is very high and isn't the correct length.
For those reasons, these are considered fake.

Photoshopped Legit pair of 1985 Jordan 1's. Hue/Saturation tool was used for this image.
Another old image from Niketalk archives. It's hard to determine exactly what colorway this is. At first it seems to be a reverse shadow. Everything on the uppers seem correct from the Air Jordan logo, swoosh size, swoosh material, tongue height, toe box but the midsole does look a little smaller than usual.

Photoshopped fake pair of 1985 Jordan 1's. Hue/Saturation tool and selective coloring was used. Another old image from Niketalk. I'm going to assume this was a photoshopped image using selective coloring and enhancing the color red. The size of the Air Jordan logo looks smaller and the placement isn't correct.

Photoshopped Legit pair of 1985 Jordan 1's. Hue/Saturation tool was used for this image.
Original image is on top and used a legit pair of 1985 1's. I used that image and came to the conclusion of two possible sneakers used. My take was a pair of UNC or Kentuckys used because on a color wheel, the next shade to green is the color blue. If you click the source (Which you can click this), the Nike Dunk was also photoshopped using Michigan Dunks.

Jordan II

198? Jordan 1.5/Jordan 2/Jordan 2.5 Prototype?
It's hard to determine what type of Jordan sneaker model this is. It has similar trains to a Air Jordan 1, Jordan 2, & Jordan 3 the more you look at it. I would consider these legit and as far as how many pairs were manufactured, that number is unknown.

1987 White & Red Jordan 2 High Prototype
Legit. Considered very rare and the number of pairs existed in the world are unknown. 
"Here’s a look at an early prototype Air Jordan IIs. The first thing you’ll probably notice is, these don’t really look much like the AJ2s we know at all. In fact they look a lot more like the Air Jordan 1. Something tells me MJ wasn’t quite satisfied with the Is, and sent Nike back to the drawing board after seeing these. Also, notice the Air Jordan symbol has been placed on the side, right in the middle, and the perforated ankle area, possibly to add better breathing. Just shows you how far the IIs came before reaching their final version." Source Jumpmankicks
