SKU: 432001-001 Category: Tag:


The Air Jordan 1 Retro High ‘Banned’ 2011 gives the nod to the infamous colorway that was supposedly banned by the NBA in 1985 for violating the league’s uniform code. The shoe features the same black and Varsity Red blocking as the OG model, but various callouts appear throughout the look. A tonal ‘X’ is embossed on the heel, while the inner lining includes the date of the ban and ‘Banned’ appears on the insole.

The controversy surrounding the banned sneakers

Firstly, the NBA commissioner, David Stern, banned these sneakers due to its bold black and red colorway, which violated league regulations. This ban caused a massive demand for the sneaker, making them even more desirable among fans and collectors.

It is believed that every time Michael Jordan wore these banned sneakers during games, he got fined $5,000! This only added to their allure and rebellious appeal. The banning highlighted a clash between artistic expression and traditional sports regulations. It became a symbol of individuality and defiance.

The ban also inadvertently caused the Air Jordan brand to go into pop culture, making it a cultural icon. In addition, the ban’s backlash brought attention to sneaker design, marketing strategies, and endorsement deals. Moreover, Nike capitalized on the ban by creating an ad campaign portraying Michael Jordan as a renegade athlete. This genius move increased sales and boosted Michael Jordan’s image.
