Is this the year when another December Jordan Brand release dethrones the Air Jordan XI as top Christmas release? If it was ever going to happen, a 2013 filled with ‘NIKE AIR’-branded Air Jordan 1 Retro High OGs was the perfect time, and just before the end of the year, we’ll get arguably the most popular of the original 1985 colorways. This is the OG ‘Banned’ edition that earned MJ $5000/game fines and changed the way we saw basketball shoes in an irreversible way. Seeing them revert to the original branding furthers the sense that this is a truly special, timeless release; are they the best OG AJ1s of the year? Let us know your opinion on this ‘Bred’ colorway and the rest of the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG series once you’ve seen more photos below and stick with Sneaker News for updates as we move in on two weeks until the release date.
