Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Bred
2016 marks the first time in 3 years that the Air Jordan Retro 1 High OG “Bred” colorway has returned. There appear to be Air Jordan 1 colorways released every year, but none have the prestige of classic Chicago-inspired versions, like the Black and Varsity Red version commonly referred to as “banned” Air Jordans. Jordan Brand reintroduced the “OG” versions of the Jordan 1, which featured “Nike Air” labeling on the tongue and on the insoles in 2013. Jordanian collectors often place more value on these little details because when The original Nike Air Jordan came out in 1985, the Jumpman logo hadn’t even been created, which means retro AJ1s with the Jumpman on the tongue, heel, or sockliner just aren’t the same. Whether you call them Breds, Banned 1s, Black and Reds, Playoffs or any other nickname, the Air Jordan 1 Retro in Black and Varsity Red is arguably the most prominent version of Air Jordan and should be a part of any sneaker collection. of serious collectors.
