Jordan brand is launching the “Rebellionaire” rendition, a release that’s inspired by the original Air Jordan 1 “Banned” commercial from 1985.
The release tells the story of how a rebellious Michael Jordan wore the “Bred” colourway on-court in his early NBA days despite getting fined $5,000 per game. Dressed in a combination of black, white and particle grey, the pair has a very similar colour blocking as the classic “Shadow” colourway.
The pair features a distressed leather upper embellished with graffiti-style text “they can’t stop you” referencing the now famous 1985 commercial. The major highlight comes in the form of red crosses on the heel very similar to the 2016 version of the Air Jordan 1 “Banned”.
Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Rebellionaire” releases FCFS in-store only on Saturday 12th March at 10am, price aed 835, UK7 – UK11.
