Branding Removed from the Air Jordan 1 ‘Banned’ by The Shoe Surgeon

Swooshless Air Jordan 1 Banned Custom The Shoe Surgeon

On Saturday, Jordan Brand released the ‘Banned’ Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG which sold-out the same day. Customizer The Shoe Surgeon was able to get his hands on a few pairs to recreate the launch to his liking.

There is a few elements that traditionally lands on the Air Jordan 1 that can be seen on the latest Banned release like the Wings and Nike Swoosh on the sides. What The Shoe Surgeon did was remove the Swoosh on the side as well as the Wings for a smooth canvas. He has also added his branding across the tongue, which means he also removed the Nike Air tag.

While Jordan Brand has released a few Swooshless Jordan 1 models in the past known as No Swoosh, they still had Nike Air branding.
