Air Jordan 1 High “Banned” Edition

Does not surprise me that Jordan Brand would try to pull something out the bag like this. For those of you who know the story about his blk/red pair being fined I would really like to hear your thoughts about these.

For everybody else peep the included commercial from back in the day when Nike ran the ad campaign for these. Nike had to pay a $5,000 fine each game because MJ continued to wear the Air Jordan 1 in this Black/Red colorway. At the time it was against the NBA "uniformity rule." It's a little funny to us because Nike just used black bars and not actually "X's" in the commercial yet they put black X's on the logos around the shoe. Now that we think about it....a black bar would have looked worst! LOL. We would like to hear your thoughts on these as well.
