Last year, the Air Jordan 1 ‘Banned’ hit Nike Factory Stores in exclusive distribution, causing the first-ever outlet store campout in history. These Air Jordan 1s you see her are the original 1985 release of the infamous ‘Banned’ colorway that we’ve become so familiar with, but are we seeing the first run of B-Grade Air Jordans? For those uncertain of what ‘B-Grade’ denotes – it’s a mark/grade given to sneakers that have minor imperfections in manufacturing, deemed not suitable for retail stores and often sent to Nike Factory Stores. This particular pair is marked with an black ‘X’ on inner face of the tongue in a white box with what appears to be an official box-tag and a stamp that reads ‘BLEMISHED’, although the ‘blemish’ in question isn’t quite clear to the naked eye (much like most other B-Grades that hit the outlet shelves). With the numbers of manufactured units so high, there’s always bound to be a slight mishap or two (even the Concords hit outlets), but there have been plenty of ‘outlet-exclusive’ B-Grade Air Jordans in the past – like the Air Jordan XI ‘DMP’ that featured golden JORDAN lettering on the eyelets. We’ve got a look at this rare find below, so take a look and see what these sold for in this closed auction from sappronie on eBay.
