Air Jordan 14 Ferarri OG – Recalled due to Lead Paint? March 5, 1999: 110,000 pairs of Infant’s “Little Air Jordan XIV” Sneakers, which Nike discovered had trim paint containing lead amounts that exceeded federal standards.
Jordan Trunner – February and July 2001: 650,000 pairs of Jordan Trunner cross-training shoes with a thin, exterior metal strip that could protrude and cut consumers. At least five injuries required stitches.
Nike Air Bakin What makes the Nike Air Bakin’ such a sizzling story is the controversy that arose from the fiery logo on the heel; it was the word ‘Air’ designed in a fiery motif, but backlash from the Muslim community for its slight resemblance to ‘Allah’ in Arabic text forced Nike to recall the shoes and re-release with a basic Nike Air logo. Not only was this a high-performer, but also a scintillating story that is still recalled today. More of the Bakin’ after the jump, so take a look and let us know if you think there’s any real controversy behind the Air logo, and stay tuned to next week’s new batch of Classics Revisited!
Released in 97, retroed in 2014
Rising Sun Jordan 12 – The Air Jordan XII is once again the source of controversy, as a Korean publication reports that a local activist is upset with the sneaker’s resemblance to Japan’s Rising Sun Flag.
According to The Korea Times, professor Seo Kyoung-duk penned a letter to Michael Jordan, Nike CEO Mark Parker, designer Tinker Hatfield, and six other unnamed Nike executives to express his concerns over the sneaker’s signature upper design, which has drawn comparisons to the Japanese military flag.
Kyoung-duk said he hopes his letter will help Nike understand why the design is in poor taste. “I would like to encourage the executives to avoid making the same mistakes in the future by helping them realize their insensitivity, indifference, and ignorance of historical facts,” he said. Insole was removed.
Air Jordan 10 Steel OG released in 1994 w leather toe cap, jordan didnt like this design that Tinker Hatfield created and demanded that the toe guard be removed mid way through production, so they mid a shift and started producing the version 2. The retros have not featured the toe guard, but I can see Jordan Brand bringing these back in true OG for to tell the story to the masses in the future.
