Before heading to perform at his 8th and final show at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY this past weekend, Jay-Z did the unthinkable by taking a stroll through his hometown and even catching the “R” train to the stadium.

Although mobs of people followed Jay-Z and his crew out of excitement for the BK native, cameras caught a glimpse of the rap icon in a pair of black and red Air Jordan 1s. Could these be a pair of “Banned” 1’s, or a pair from 2001?

Take a guess at which Jordan 1’s Jay has on, and stay tuned to Sneaker Files for more Celebrity Sneaker Watch news.
