AIR JORDAN XXXI "BANNED"

Posted on September 02 2016

Jordan Brand is releasing a flyweave version of the XXXI.  The shoe’s first-of-its-kind Flyweave and leather upper incorporates a number of iconic Jordan elements, reintroducing the original Air Jordan “Wings” logo and a subtle Swoosh — not seen on a Jordan shoe since the Air Jordan 1 and the first time it has appeared alongside a Jumpman logo. And in its launch colorway the Air Jordan XXX1 pays homage to the “Banned” story.

“I think the spirit these shoes represent is a feeling of defiance. You know, you see the poster of MJ dunking with his gold chain, up in the air forever and defying gravity, wearing the Air Jordan 1; you just can’t stop looking at that poster,” says Jordan Senior Designer Tate Kuerbis.

Informed by Jordan himself, the Air Jordan XXX1 also follows on a tradition of low-profile cushioning. “He needed to feel closer to the floor — that was his thing,” recalls White of the origin of Jordan’s desire for low-to-the-ground sole units. As such, the Air Jordan XXX1 features FlightSpeed technology with full-length Zoom Air that enhances court feel, responsiveness and lateral support.

Air Jordan XXX1 Banned Release Date

The Air Jordan XXX1 “Banned” will be available September 3rd at Denim Exchange. The retail price tag is set at $185 USD.
