"Banned" AJ1 Flyknit release details.
The beloved "Banned" colorway of the Air Jordan 1 will be releasing once again next month, but this time around they won't feature the familiar leather construction.
Nike has officially introduced the "Banned" Air Jordan 1 Flyknit, featuring a yarn-like upper as well as a Zoom Air unit in the heel, which also differs from the standard Air Jordan 1.
"Much like the original Air Jordan 1 design, Flyknit had an immediate impact on sports and style. The technology has continually evolved since its debut in 2012, and in the Air Jordan 1 Retro Hi Flyknit allows for a classic look while maximizing flexibility and ventilation."
"In order to properly honor the Air Jordan 1 heritage, premium leather details are featured throughout, including the Swoosh, Wings logo, and Nike Air branded tongue and insole. A graphic reading “19852017” is printed on the inner collar to honor the original Air Jordan 1 release year and launch of the Air Jordan 1 Retro Hi Flyknit respectively. Additionally, a Zoom Air unit has been added in the heel."
The retooled black and red Air Jordan 1 will be available on September 9th for the retail price of $180.
