The Air Jordan 1 colorway that picked up that “Banned” nickname, that black and red pair infamously removed from the league back in 1985, looks to be coming back 2013. Granted, it doesn’t look to have the same level of leather and story-telling packaging as the more official “Banned” released of 2011-but it is a “Nike Air” equipped pair. Pictured here is an early sample shown off by Hiroshi Fujiwara, one that you can just barely spot the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG designation on thanks to the tongue that that’s peeking out. Get a more complete look at this exciting Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG colorway after the jump and tell us in the comments if you’re anticipating purchasing. Also, keep in mind that speculation has them pegged as a late 2013 release but nothing is confirmed just yet.
