The Jordan 1 "Banned" also known as the Jordan 1 Bred received it's nickname when NBA commissioner Gordon banned the shoes because he felt that they did not match the Bulls uniform. Needless to say, Jordan completely ignored this and wore the shoes the entire season. This lead to nearly half a million dollars in fines that Nike paid off. Jordan could have cared less. The banning of the shoes rocketed them to icon status. The latest release features a black and red (bred) colorway with premium tumbled leather. Jordan Brand cut no corners on these shoes, they are immaculate from front to heel.
