Known as the revolutionary Nike shoe that changed the sneaker world as we know i,t the Air Jordan 1 “Banned ” color way, also known as the “Bred” will be back on 12/28 three days after Christmas .
Originally released during the fall of 1985 in Jordan’s rookie NBA season, When they were first introduced to the public, the shoe was considered edgy but by today’s standards it’s a pretty tame shoe compared to the likes of a Nike foamposite or the Adidas Jeremy Scott wings.
The red and black color-way to match the uniform of the Chicago Bulls, caused quite the controversy and the bred color-way was later outlawed by NBA Commissioner David Stern for not having any white on them. Michael Jordan would wear the shoes anyway, and each time he stepped on the court with the Air Jordan 1 he would be fined five thousand dollars. Nike used this as a promotional tool in advertisements hinting that the shoes gave an unfair competitive advantage and that whoever wore them had a certain edginess associated with outlaw activities. Nike would later create a colorway with red, white, and black which would be worn by Jordan for most of the 1985 and 1986 seasons. Sneaker collectors and Hype Beast around the world will line up and wait for hours to buy this elusive shoe .
