Air Jordan 1 “Banned” Commercial

The 30th anniversary of the "banned" Air Jordan 1 was this weekend. So, commemoration of the milestone, here's a look back at a short commercial Nike rolled out making light of the situation... and controversy surrounding the iconic sneaker.

The story does like this. The red/black colorway of the shoe went against the rules of the NBA, so Michael Jordan was fined $5,000 per game... which was covered by Nike... helping fuel sales... and adding to the legend.
