This year has been full of surprises for the Air Jordan 1, most of them coming via the “Nike Air” sporting Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG version of the shoe. Perhaps the most celebrated of them all was the surprise revelation that the sneakers would also be coming back in their original black/red “Banned” colorway just before the year’s end. Pictured here is that sneaker, one that will arrive this year sans those story telling embellishments that the outlet-only Air Jordan 1 “Banned” came with. See the shoes in full view after the break and tell us if you’re excited for this December 28th release.

I wish these came in tumbled leather on the real....I'm gonna cop regardless but a man can dream right.
My favorite sneaker ever! damn this would have been an awesome year for all the Jordan 1 fans, if only they hadn't fcuk up the Chicago Bulls colorway.
These were my first pair of Jordans in 1st grade, I'd love to have another pair nearly 30 years later, but I'm afraid that it'll be close to impossible to get for retail.
I love this colorway ill have to decide which 1s ill get between taxi 12, 10 steel n 11 gamma blue but im getting these no matter wat
Straight up the question is which Jordan will be the hardest to get your hands on this holiday season, Air Jordan 12 taxi, Air Jordan 11 or Air Jordan 1 bred?
Now the it begins. Hopefully the release of 11's, Taxi's, and blackout foams distracts the younger sneakerheads from these. Either way, All of military contacts in EU and Asia will be on alert for these for me.
My collection of jays are comprised mostly of 11's 5's and of course 1's the pair I couldn't get my hands was the black toes but I'm definitely getting two pairs now I'll finally be able go put my Hugh straps to rest lol
Just ordered two pair from the Marqueesole..... Got the royal 1s from them also and they were nicer than the pair I got from the Vault....... Just can't wait till xmas on these....
Best release of the year. No question. #2 is Fear V. #3 Royal Blue 1s. I LOVE these. Still have the pair that came out in 2008 with the strap and what not. Wore the hell out of them. Glad these are coming back.
@cuddy2kx Very legit, the royal 1s were flawless from them........
@SneakerCraze How about you raise your own cattle, and you that leather. Instead of this "cheap ass" leather
@SneakerCraze It's not as nice as Banned 1's but they're not as bad as the Chicago 1's. More like the Royals and Shadows that came out this year.
@vickgotkickz 11's hands down! Check it's resume from the past 4 releases.
I feel you I just went and reserved mines already so I might just get me another pair since I love this shoe so damn much
@adadalives that '08 strap pair was f*cking bomb though!! i wanted em so bad back then
@mrELsenor you got the gold metallics 1s??
@Kev Loco How about I just don't cop.....because I don't want these. Just stating my opinion on this website. Get your panties out your azz
@jhoward Thanks for the info....I didn't really care for the leather on the Shadow 1's therefore I didn't cop. Thanks for the heads up bruh....still passing on these
@lb2300 How bout you u stick a d*ck in your ear and f*ck what ya heard. I cop what I like and I ain't coppin this sh*t
@mike0811 You're telling me not to comment??? That's like telling me not to vote. Get the f*ck outta here with that bullsh*t. Last time I checked, this was a discussion thread where people voice their opinions on shoes or whatever else www.sneakernews.com decides to post.. I say what I mean, and I mean what I say. That is all.
@lb2300 Who's trying to sound tough? Not me. Simply stating my opinion....like it or not. Not my problem.
@mrELsenor The Gold ARE OG.
