Sneaker Showcase: Air Jordan 1 “BRED”

Michael Jordan 1985

There are thousands of sneakers on the Sneakerpedia wiki and still thousands more that can be added. But, one thing that is for certain, no single sneaker is as significant as the Air Jordan 1. Michael Jordan’s first signature sneaker from Nike was a game-changer. And to give Nike and MJ full credit, it was a game changer in both sneaker world and the world of professional basketball.

Many sneaker enthusiasts will refer to the Black and Red version of the Air Jordan 1 as the “Banned” colorway. If you’re new to sneakers, that’s because when Michael Jordan first wore the shoes during the 1984-1985 NBA season, he was fined by the league for failing to meet the strict dress code requirements of the NBA at the time. Compared to today’s crazy sneaker colorways the “BRED” Air Jordan 1 seems like an old man’s shoe but that’s also what makes it so incredible. It’s timeless.

Whether you are a teen, just trying to look fresh, or an adult looking to relive those memories of the greatest basketball player to ever play the game, the Air Jordan I is still the perfect sneaker. Not necessarily because it’s fresh or full of memories, but because it changed the way the average consumer looked at sneakers. The Air Jordan I made everyone pay attention to the sneakers on the court. With a retro release scheduled before the end of the year, the Black and Red version, in true original fashion, complete with Nike Air on the tongue, will once again be at the center of the sneaker world. Will you be grabbing a pair of these classics?
