Year: 2011

The story behind the success of this shoe was simple: Drop the sneaker that started it all in the most popular colorway of all time, hook the uppers up with lux leathers, and make everyone scramble for them at outlet-only retailers. When the “Banned” 1s dropped unexpectedy like bird shit last year, people were fiending to cop a pair and when walking brand man Kanye West rocked them at Fashion Week, the resellers got paid. X marks the spot.
