GRADE SCHOOL SIZING
"Against League Policy" was the 5000$ fee justification that Michael Jordan received upon wearing the legendary Jordan 1s in the NBA in 1985. Unfazed by large fines, he continued to pursue his dream of having his own basketball sneaker line. In 2011, Nike honoured this pursuit with the Nike Air Jordan 1 High "Banned".
Jordan 1. Bred. Previously "illegal". Hype pure, instantly sold out everywhere.
As a homage to this homage, Jordan released a mid-top emulation of the "Banned" in 2020, nearly identical from its inspiration. Apart from the lower shape itself, red eye stays have been replaced with black patent leather. Otherwise, the silhouette strongly resembles its predecessor. The release is timed impeccably, with the Mid-hype in full motion and any Bred colourway an instant cop for Jordan fans.
