History of the Jordan 1 'Banned':

On February 15th, 1985, the NBA submitted a letter to Nike Vice President Rob Strasse stating that the red and black shoe that Jordan was wearing on or around October 18th, 1984 was against league policy. The policy requires each player to wear shoes that matches his teammates’ and also matches the team colors, which for the Chicago Bulls is black, red, and white. Because he did not follow league guidelines he was fined $5,000. But Jordan was Jordan. The fine didn’t faze him, so he would occasionally wear his own kicks and he was fined each and every time.

Due to the league’s infamous letter, the Jordan 1 was deemed to be “Banned.” Many of Jordan’s older fans were already aware of the history of this shoe, but Nike really shed light on it in 2011 when it released the buttery soft Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Banned” model that didn’t have much hype on it until months and months after the release. This shoe really puts things into perspective for the “new class” of sneakerheads. It gave them a piece of history.
