After being converted into football cleats earlier this week, the classic Air Jordan 1 “Banned” is getting its next transformation in the form of a toddler’s edition. The mini Js mimic the adult version’s notorious red and black palette, while a few modifications keep the style kid-friendly.
The Jordans retains its leather construction on the upper with the usual paneled construction. Adhering to certain children-specific footwear regulations, the laces have been substituted with a more appropriate elastic slip-on tongue. Meanwhile, the toebox has been changed from leather to nylon. A white rubber outsole featuring a grid pattern adds a soft flexible finish to the shoe.
Priced at $40 USD, expect the Air Jordan 1 Crib “Banned” to become available at Nike in the near future.
