Is 2013 BRED 1 Quality As Good As 2010 Banned 1s? (Air Jordan 1 OG)

I wanted to compare the quality of the “Banned” Jordan 1 OGs form 2010 to the newly released 2013 Air Jordan 1 OGs w/ the Nike Air on the tongue in the BRED colorway.  So the first and most important question, how is the leather quality?  I would say it is good.  Is it Banned 1 quality leather?  No.  Not even close.  This video provides an up close look at these 2 shoes in 1080p.  Please note, the 2013 version is a GS size since I couldn’t get the 2013 Men’s size.
