One of the latest sneakers to debut is the Air Jordan 31. Truly integrating the style of classic Jordans with hot sneaker materials, the Air Jordan 31s feature a flyweave and leather upper that flows effortlessly into each other. The combination of the contrasting materials truly gives you the best of both—support from the synthetic leather and movement with the flyweave. The shoe debuts in the “Banned” or “Bred” colorway—the red and black color scheme of Air Jordan 1 banned by the NBA in 1985 and cost Nike $5,00 for violating the league’s dress code every time Jordan wore them.

Changing up the Air Jordan game, the XXXI’s are the first models to feature Jumpman, Wings, and Nike Swoosh logos together. The set of new features does not end there. Across the red sole of the Air Jordan 31s, you’ll read loud and clear “BANNED”. Although you may be anxious to get your hands on a pair soon, the brand has stopped taking reservations. But, the release date is set for Labor Day weekend, September 3rd, available at some Jordan retailers.
