A few people nitpick the use of the word ‘Banned’ because of the special 2011 release, others have said things here and there about the word ‘Bred’ and of course those Instagram flicks of questionable humor. But what all of this really amounts to, fellow sneakerheads, is a form of love. Notice that absolutely no one has said that the black and red Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG needs any cosmetic changes whatsoever. It has been perfect since it caused a quantum leap in sneakers in 1985 and people love it so intensely that they fret over the tiniest details in maintaining its legacy. Jordan Brand does the same in rendering it with the original branding in a supple leather. It’s one of those pairs every serious collector should have but rest assured you’ll need to be quick on the trigger to get yours this Saturday, December 28th at 8am eastern from NikeStore.
