Air Jordan 1 Retro ‘Banned’ – New Photos
Here’s another viewing of the Air Jordan 1 ‘Banned’ in the Black/Varsity Red colorway. The upper features a distressed leather material, which gives the shoe a decades-old vintage feel, alluding to the infamous banning of Michael’s signature sneaker by the NBA. A hefty fine was placed on Michael’s shoulders for each game her wore the shoes, but Nike took care of that burden and urged Michael to continue wearing the shoes. The ‘Banned’ version here features the red ‘X’ painted over the heel logo as well as a special insole, lace-tips, and miniature ‘X’ graphics on the inner lining. This sample you see here is a ‘B-Grade’ version (a Nike product with a minor factory defect) and was recently sold online. After checking out the new images, take a look at the final selling price of this auction from jayc414 on eBay.
