Must Buy: Air Jordan 1 "Banned"

So most of my sneakerheads know about the Red and Black Air Jordan 1's being banned by the NBA. While we have seen retro releases of this shoe before, the details on this pair are what make it special. Crossing out the Jumpman logos on the tongue, foxing and heel are black Xs, serving as an ode to the NBA’s decision to fine Michael thousands of dollars for each game he wore the non-uniform compliant shoe. No word on a release date for now but rest assured these will release in the near future.
