since no one has mentioned it specifically, it was just the blk/red colorway, not the wht/red-blk colorway that he finished his rookie year in and wore his entire second year.

the air jordan I was NOT the shoe banned. It was another shoe. The whole "banned" campaign was used to promote the black red highs.

Released to the public�in 1985, the Air Jordan I revolutionized the basketball shoe as we know it.� The original colors were red and black and had a winged basketball logo on the side�above the ankle�as well as a large�Nike swoosh on the side. The original price for the shoe was only $65.� The shoe��also came�with a set of double�laces to match the two�colors.�Jordan�unveiled them in a game against the Philadelphia 76′ers�on�November 17th, 1984.�Shortly after however, the NBA banned the sneaker stating that it did not follow the on court dress code.� The NBA fined Jordan $5,000 a game for wearing them, but the ban only created more buzz for the shoe.

Since the release of the Air Jordan I, there have been 21 other Jordan shoes released.� The shoe line is arguably the most popular shoe in the world selling out in stores across the country within hours.� Jordans are being sold for up to $1,000 on ebay and�have become collector items,�as the demand for retro Jordans continues to grow.� Everyone has their personal favorite�Jordan sneaker, but the Nike Air Jordan I is the shoe that started it all.

yeah back in 85 it was a big deal for the shoe to not be all white, especially on the court. if you think of all the force variations they were wearing back then, they were ALL white.

vibrant?

imagethink he just threw that in their...image


No he didn't just throw that in there. And yes vibrant. The shoe was too bright and it clashed by the NBA's standards. Too much red. Not enough white.

MJ also got fined for the XIs he wore in the '95 playoffs. I think it was only for like two games or something like that. I used to think it was because the shoe was looked at as "too innovative", but apparently it was also because of uniform violation.
