If the Air Jordan XXX1 “Banned” didn’t exactly strike your fancy upon its unveiling in Las Vegas yesterday, fear not: the OG inspiration behind the kicks is indeed making a comeback later this summer as Jordan Brand used the debut of the XXX1 to take the wraps off of this year’s retro of the infamous “Banned” Air Jordan 1. Originally teased on social media via promos with both Russell Westbrook and His Airness himself, the 2016 retro of the “Bred” look stays true to the 1985 original, adopting a leather build and iconic black and red colorway while ditching the tonal “X” that decorated the heel of 2011’s drop. Perhaps best of all for the purists, since the kicks come in the form of the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG, the Nike Air branding remains intact on the tongue.

Sadly, these will cost you a bit more than their mid-’80s MSRP of $65 USD, but, nonetheless, the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Banned” will be welcomed with open arms when it hits shelves September 3. And you don’t have to worry about incurring a $5,000 USD fine and the league’s wrath when you rock ‘em.
