When the first Air Jordan model debuted in 1985 it utilized the era's best materials and technologies to create a shoe that changed the face of sports and fashion forever. Now the famed silhouette is poised to do it all over again with the Air Jordan 1 Retro Hi Flyknit "Banned". Sporting the classic "Banned" colorway of the original Air Jordan, the shoe retains the iconic color blocking on a full Flyknit upper that is the most lightweight and breathable of any Air Jordan 1 iteration yet. A premium leather swoosh, Nike Air tongue tag, Wings logo and insole honors the Air Jordan 1 heritage, as does a 1985 graphic on the inside of the each tongue. A classic Air Jordan 1 sole unit with updated Zoom Air in the heel puts the finishing touch on this remixed classic.
The Air Jordan 1 Retro Hi Flyknit "Banned" will be available to purchase on Saturday, September 9th in-store and via email order at lapstoneandhammer.com.
