Nike Air Logo Returning to Retro Air Jordans?

Oct 11, 2010 | George Kiel III |



The Air Jordan 1 Hi “Banned” has instantly become a highly-anticipated, must-have sneaker although release information is still uncertain. Many of you have been impressed with the major attention-to-detail elements Jordan Brand has placed on this shoe such as the vintage-like, premium leather, the Air Jordan Wings logo and the ‘X’ ban mark on the shoe and the special vintage style box. A small yet powerful attribute can go unnoticed if you don’t pay close attention. The latest photo that Fat Joe tweeted revealed that the Air Jordan 1 Hi “Banned” features the legendary and timeless ‘Nike Air’ logo on the tongue.

If you recall, we have not seen the Nike Air tongue logo on a retro Air Jordan since the Air Jordan 1s that were re-released in 2001. Established Air Jordan addicts will appreciate this attribute more than anything considering MJ sported the Nike Air logo in the prime of his career.

Bigger question might be, if the Air Jordan 1 is getting the Nike Air logo back on the tongue could we see it in the future on other Air Jordans?
