Air Jordan 1 "Banned"

"On September 15th Nike created a revolutionary new basketball shoe. On October 18th, the NBA threw them out of the game......" 
Back in 1985, Michael Jordan came out on the court in the 1st pair of the Air Jordan's he was later fined $5,000 per game, because at the time, the shoe do not comply with NBA League standard uniform policy. Twenty-sex years later, Jordan has his own brand under the Nike company, and within it a position to create any shoes, some of which make fun of the decision by the NBA in 1985. 

Early this month, there was an unexpected release of the "Banned" Retro 1 at Nike Outlet stores across the nations, and sneakerheads nationally were able to get their hands on them. It was earlier thought that the "Banned" Retro 1 would come with a black "X" on the wings logo on the ankle and Jumpman logos on the tongue and heel, as shown below:

However, this unexpected release proves that the Jordan Brand will continue to come up with the unexpected. The shoes, come in the original banned black and red colorway, and comes with two red "X" logos on the heel and is package in a box that is inspired by the banned legend as is has the "X" logos throughout. 

O course, you can see you're boy Chev, rocking these in the streets o ATL, but in case you haven't seen them below are a few pictures of the "Banned" Retro 1 that was released a few weeks ago.
