One of this year’s Air Jordan releases 2019 for Black Friday will be the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Bred,” which is apparently returning. It might have surprised you, at least a bit, that Jordan Brand is bringing back not one but two original “Bred” colorways this year. Of course, the other one is the returning Air Jordan 4 “Bred.” Jordan Brand has official confirmed that it is indeed hitting the shelves next month and unveiled actual, detailed photos of this year’s version. The Air Jordan 4 “Bred” makes its comeback on May 4th. The Air Jordan 1 High “Banned” or “Bred” returns during the 2019 Holiday Season.
You might be wondering why Jordan Brand is bringing back the Air Jordan 1 High “Bred” as a part of their Holiday Season line up of Air Jordan releases 2019, even though they did the same two years ago. Even though this year’s version has not be unveiled, nor have any photos been leaked, you may have already figured out that it will look exactly like the original, including having a higher cut. Its uppers will be dressed up in the same color scheme of Black and Varsity Red, the latter also covering its outsoles, while its midsoles will be plain White.
The last time the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Banned / Bred” arrived at retailers was two years ago, on September 3th, 2016, and at the time, it was available for $160. Of course, the colorway does not require any introduction at this point. You likely also know that it was not exactly the Air Jordan 1 that the NBA banned Michael Jordan from wearing on the court and consequently fined him $5,000 when he did not oblige. Regardless, that does not change the fact that the Air Jordan 1 “Banned / Bred” is where the legacy of the Jordan Brand’s signature line began.
