Day Old Bre(a)d- Jordan 1.5s

T’is the holiday season and your Mom sends you to the bakery with a very specific request.

She says son, “I want you to purchase a loaf of day old bread. Whatever you do, don’t buy the freshly baked stuff.”

Your first thought is why in the world Carmen Sandiego are we buying day old bread? Are we struggling financially this month?

When you return home with your day old bread, you realize your Mom has a plan better than even one created by Hannibal from the A-Team. She is preparing her ultra delicious bread pudding.

The Air Jordan 1.5, in the black and red (bred) colourway, is that necessary day old bread that you purchased to help your Mom create the most delicious bread pudding in all of Kitchenville.

Fresh bread and not day old bread is what most customers want to purchase. It’s the Royal, Bred, Shadow, and Shattered Backboard 1 flavours that instantly sell out. Fresh bread represents Michael Jordan, the brash rookie in 85’, posterizing opposing teams while rocking his tongue out swagger.

A foot injury arguably cut short MJ’s new Jordan 2 recipe campaign resulting in many sneakerheads proceeding to the Jordan 3 for the next freshest flavour.

But somewhere deep in the sneaker archives a hybrid 1.5 recipe was created for MJ, but not released to the public.

This Jordan 1.5 recipe featured a Jordan 1 upper combined with a Jordan 2 lower and was finally released to the public in late 2015.

The Bred 1.5s were greeted with mixed reactions; some praised the never released true OG silhouette, while others disrespected the combination of the sacred 1 upper and the less than desirable 2 lower.

What most sneakerheads don’t know about the Jordan 1.5 recipe is that it is super comfortable and supportive. Having owned AJ 1s and 2s in both low and high iterations, I can objectively report that the 1.5 is more delectable comfortable than the AJ 1 and has better foot lock down than the AJ 2.

Shout out to Sneakerphiles podcast crew member Kurtz for sharing his 1.5 Bre(a)d recipe with me. Are you willing to try 1.5 day old bre(a)d?

      The ID top and bottom pairing might be a logistical nightmare. Not all models are plug and play. That being said, I think a way for Nike to reengage its older sneakerheads is to allow frequent purchasers to gain access to iconic ID models like the Jordan 1, 3, 11 etc.
