As Jordan Brand launches one of its most technologically advanced Air Jordans to date, fans are still enamored with the original. This weekend, the "Banned" Air Jordan 1 will make its highly anticipated return to retail, with pairs expected to fly off shelves in record time. Before everything goes down, our own Rich "Maze" Lopez and Brendan Dunne took to Facebook for a live unboxing of the 2016 "Banned" Jordan 1. Additionally, with the buzz surrounding the leather used on the upcoming release, the two compared it to the well-made "Shattered Backboard" and "Shadow" retros.

Recently, we also showed you how the 2016 "Banned" Air Jordan 1 compares to the 2013 retro and original from 1985. Be sure to like Sole Collector on Facebook for all of your sneaker news and more live videos.
