Air Jordan I – The NBA Banned Shoe

Being that EF is made up of vintage Air Jordan fanatics, we couldn’t bypass the pair that started it all, the black & red Air Jordan I a.k.a. the NBA banned shoe.  For those that don’t know back in 1985 (Banned on October 17th, to be exact) the NBA had a white sneaker rule that was broken when a young MJ dawned the black & red editions of the AJ1’s versus the initial design of the white, black & red (which the NBA still had beef with).

Anyway, to commemorate the ban, Nike will re-release the black & red’s with a few additions such as the “X” on the heel, ankle cushions and explanatory insoles.  Classic.

Michael Jordan – Invincible

Arguably, the greatest to ever play the game.  He’s the innovator of change in pro basketball, really in my humble opinion, the economic cornerstone of sports merchandising and one of my childhood heroes.  Michael Jordan a.k.a. “Air” Jordan will have a motion picture released this year.  Check out the trailer above.
