What was first thought to be the “Bred” Air Jordan 1, it now turns out that the Air Jordan 1 “Banned” will be receiving the remastered retro release set to debut this September 2016.
This classic Air Jordan 1 features a Black and Varsity Red leather upper with various symbols that pay tribute to Michael Jordan’s first signature shoe, while the NBA attempted banning them from hitting the court. Other details include the Banned ‘X’ on the heel, famous quote for the Jordan Brand commercial appears on the insole, finished with the date that David Stern banned MJ’s shoes and the phrase, “Imagine if…?” on the box.
