'Banned' Reverse Air Jordan 1 Hi 85

‘Banned’ Reverse Air Jordan 1 Hi 85: Michael Jordan’s Shoes Were Too Hot For The NBA!

The original black and red colorway of the said to be “Banned” Air Jordan 1 hi 85’s have been reversed to the red and black scheme.  The Reverse Air Jordan 1 Hi 85 also go by many nicknames such as the “Varsity Reds” and “Alternate Breed.” The Reverse Air Jordan 1 Hi 85 is part of Jordan’s “New Beginnings” release of all the bull color Air Jordan 1 plus the original retro shoe, the Nike Air Ship.

The sneaker is said to be relatively close to the original design of the 1985 Air Jordan Hi. The version of the shoe comes with a hangtag made with original archived images. The shoe was released on February 8 of this year and had 23,000 pairs of the shoe made and packaged with the retro style packaging and a drawstring bag. The Reversed Air Jordan 1 hi 85 will not be one to be missed by sneakerheads and Jordan fans. The shoe is selling on average $610 with a high of $830 and a low of $300s.

The design originated from the Black and Red Color scheme that was said to be “banned” from the NBA back in the 1984-1985 season when Michael Jordan wore them. They were illegal to wear during games because of a uniform rule that the league had set in place to make sure that no one would fashionably standout. Shoes that players wore had to be within the same colors of their team and similar to the shoe their teammates wore. Jordan was said to be fined and still wore them.
