The Air Jordan 1 “Bred” is a black and red version of Michael Jordan’s first signature shoe. It receives the traditional “Banned” aka “Bred” color scheme of Black and Red that’s built with a full premium leather upper and rests atop a clean White midsole and Red rubber outsole.
Some of the notable features to this release includes ‘Nike Air’ branding on the tongue and will not include the ‘X’ detailing on the heel that was seen on the original “Banned” release from 2011.
NIKE AIR JORDAN 1 BRED RETRO HIGH OG was designed by Peter Moore in 1985 and banned from the NBA for breaking uniform regulations. You’ll also notice the sizes and other numbers printed on the inside of the ankle of the shoe, a nod to the same detail seen in the original from 1985.
Every time the shoe was worn, Jordan was fined $5,000 per game, but Nike paid for all the fees. Michael kind of threw the rules out on how you were supposed to play the game.
NIKE AIR JORDAN 1 BRED RETRO HIGH OG kind of threw the rules out on what a basketball shoe was supposed to look like.
People who weren’t even into basketball found out about the shoe and it became this catalyst for where we are today.
