As you know, earlier this month several lucky Air Jordan enthusiasts were able to get their hands on a pair of the unreleased 'Banned' Air Jordan Retro 1. Thanks to an unexpected release at several Nike Outlets across the country, there are a number of pairs on the market of this historical Air Jordan shoe that we have little to no information on.

Regardless if they release or not, they are still out there and dedicated Air Jordan collectors will get their hands on them. If you're one of those collectors and still on the fence, we bring you a closer look at one of the leaked pairs of the unreleased 'Banned' Air Jordan Retro 1. Complete in the banned black and red color scheme, they tell their story with several dates and phrases throughout, and of course two red 'X' logos on the heel.

An OG-inspired box was also included in this rare 'outlet' release, donning 'X' logos throughout. Continue below for a closer look at the 'Banned' Air Jordan Retro 1, and be sure to keep it locked to Sole Collector for the latest on an official release.
