How the “Banned” & “Royal” 1s are Coming Back in 2019

Back in 1984-85 season, Michael Jordan and Nike rewrote the script on signature sneakers and sports marketing with the Air Jordan 1.

Worn by Mike in his Rookie of the Year campaign and “Banned” by the NBA in its Black/Red from, the shoe was a hit from the start.

While Chicago colorways soared on court, other OGs removed from the Windy City made an impact all over the country.

Just ask Allen Iverson who wore the “Royal” 1s as a kid back in the ’80s.

Though full-sized sneakerheads would love a re-release of the Air Jordan 1 in either beloved OG colorway, they’re going to have either wait or shrink their feet Rick Moranis style.

The upcoming Sky Jordan 1 – no Air cuz you gotta learn to crawl before you learn to fly – feature the acclaimed OG color schemes with a velcro Wings strap for easy-on, easy-off wear.

Look for the youth to get laced with these updated OGs in the near future. For a complete history of Black/Red Air Jordan 1s, click here.
