"Defiant" Air Jordan 1 offers a new take on Jordan Brand's "Banned" theme.
Jordan Brand reportedly has plans to release an all-new Air Jordan 1 colorway later this month, inspired by the NBA's historic decision to ban Michael Jordan from wearing red and black sneakers back on February 25, 1985.
Dubbed the Air Jordan 1 High OG "Defiant," the ban-themed sneakers sport a smooth, black leather upper highlighted by red rectangles that are stamped over the sneaker's iconic Nike swooshes.
According to sneaker source @Py_Leaks, the cut of the "Defiant" Air Jordan 1 High OG is slightly higher than your traditional Air Jordan 1 High OG. Furthermore, it is believed that the kicks will retail for $175, a tad more than the familiar $160 AJ1 price tag.
Nike and Jordan Brand have not yet introduced official images or release details but rumors suggest the "Defiant" 1s will be available in limited quantities on February 23. Stay tuned for more info.
