History Of The Air Jordan Brand

In 1984, Nike was a struggling shoe company looking for ways to appeal to a new segment of the shoe market, and to reinvent themselves. Nike has turned to rookie Michael Jordan to order to make an endorsement deal, but MJ showed no interest at all. MJ had plans to sign a deal with either Adidas or Converse; he loved the brands, and in North Carolina, these were the shoes that wore to play basketball in. Unfortunately, both of the brands rejected him.

Nike was offering to create a brand new line of shoes called Air Jordan, and MJ’s old agent, David Falk, saw this as a wonderful opportunity. MJ flew to the Nike headquarters in Portland, Oregon, after being convinced by his parents , and his agent. During his visit, Nike has shown him a special video presentation of his college career highlights, plus his high-flying Olympics moves with Pointer Sister’s “Jump” playing in the background. Peter Moore, Nike’s Old Head Designer, also shown MJ sketches of the Air Jordan 1, and apparel to go with it. It was featured in Black and Red, and MJ was very interested with these designs. He has stated: “I can’t wear these shoes, those are devil colors”.

MJ has decided to finally make a deal with Nike, and has signed a 5-year deal that was worth $2.5 million. MJ has fueled the success of Nike, and the Air Jordan Brand is still popular today.

The Air Jordan 2 History

The Air Jordan 2 was originally released back in 1986, designed by Bruce Kilgore and Peter Moore. It was the first Air Jordan sneaker to NOT feature the Nike Swoosh. It was also the first Air Jordan sneaker to be made in Italy, it features a faux-lizard skin on the upper, and a design inspiration from a women’s boot.

This sneaker was known by sneaker collector as the first “luxury” basketball shoe. The Air Jordan 2 comes with a length encapsulated Nike air bubble for maximum comfort. Michael Jordan has played the 1987 All-Star Game and his first Slam Dunk Contest in the Jordan 2s.

The Air Jordan 2 released in high and low tops, and was retailed at $105.00.

Features Of The Shoe

The upper of the shoe consist of black leather covered with special African patterns. You will notice that the heel and mudguard areas are covered in red, blue, yellow, and black BHM graphics, while the outsoles are also colorful as well. Finally, on the heels of the sneakers, you will see “NIKE” and “BHM” covered in gold, and the golden branding on the tongue to top things off.

  1. Thanks for the info about the shoe! It’s very informative, interesting, and easy to follow. I like how the history of the shoe is given, specifics about the release date, and also the video at the end makes it look super cool! What type of workout would you suggest this shoe for? Are they mainly for basketball, or would they also be beneficial for running, tennis, or other types of sports? 

    • Hello Elita, thanks for the comment. These sneaker are mainly for basketball, but there are Jordan sneakers that are also built for the type of sports that you just mentioned. 

  2. Hello Ahmad,

    Thanks to your article, I now know that Michael Jordan, this great basketball player, finally signed a contract with Nike to create fantastic shoes. I consider the Nike brand to be the best in sneakers. I have some that I use for jogging that are more than 10 years old and are still valid. They look great the two pairs that show “BHM” and “NIKE” I ask you if I could jog with this type of shoes? 

    Thank you so much for your advice. Regards! Claudio

    • Hello Claudio, thanks for the comment. These were originally built for the purpose of playing basketball, so I don’t know if I would recommend that you jog in them. The Jordan Brand has some running shoes that you can find on Ebay, feel free to check that out. 

  3. Yes, I love to rock with these shoes. Why?

    It teaches me how a career should look. It instills me with perseverence and hard work. For me, I am buying a piece of antique.

    Awesome history of Michael Jordan is presented with brilliance. 

    I loved this post because it shows me what success means. 

    I wish there would be something for a woman as well.

    • Hello Anusuya, thanks for the comment. MJ definitely had a great basketball career, and his legacy continues to live on!

  5. Hello there!

    Awesome post! These shoes are so beautiful! I also love the way you presented their history. 

    My brother is in love with Jordan shoes, so I am sure he will be so happy to receive those as a gift. His birthday is on february, so I found your website just in time. I had no idea what to buy him. Now I know.

    Thank you so much for sharing!

    • Hello Anna, thanks for the comment. Wow, February the 13th is my birthday, Aquarius’ rule the world! These will be the perfect gift for him indeed, the colorway is the best.

  6. These are beutifully made sneakers with alot history in them and continue to mean alot to alot more people antill today  I knew Micheal as player who had talent beyond many could even dream of  and he did so well he made Chicago bulls one the most famous teams in his era . So the sneakers need to be given credit they deserve coming from great like Jordan.

    • Hello Charles, thanks for the comment. MJ is indeed the GREATEST OF ALL TIME, and the sneakers will be a forever trend. 

  7. Nice review.

    What can I say?

    I loved watching Michael Jordan. How easily that man moved.

    Maybe if I buy Air Jordan 2 BHM I will also move as Michael Jordan. Just kidding.There is a lot of work and effort as in every sport.

    A lot of knowledge and effort are invested in making such good sneakers.

    Have a nice day,

    Leo

    • Hello Leo, thanks for the comment. Feel free to always check out my site for more sneaker news!!

  8. I had no idea the story behind the air Jordans! While I do not own these shoes, I adore the colors! I have always liked Michael Jordan and I bet those other companies are kicking themselves for not signing with him! I can see that the release of these shoes every year is exciting– how many pair do you own!?

    Awesome article, thanks for sharing!

    –Ciara

    • Hello Ciara, thanks for the comment. I can’t begin to tell you how many sneakers I have in my collection LLS. I happen to own over a hundred pair of shoes right now (WOW you may say). 

  9. Absolutely love this shoe!  My son just got a new job and he has to get a pair of black shoes.  He will be on his feet all day, and this looks like just the pair for him!  I am going to bookmark this review and have him take a look.  We like the Nike brand anyway.  Do you know if these shoes have a wide fit?  Just as long as it is not a narrow fit, we should be good.

    • Hello Matt’s Mom, thanks for the comment. Some people say that they are wide, and some say narrow. I have a pair of the Air Jordan 2s, and they feel a little tight. I wouldn’t say that they are wide enough. 

  10. Hey Ahmad,

    Thanks for your review of these sneakers. It was very interesting to see the history of the sneaker, the brand, and the player. When searching for sneakers the history is usually not on peoples mind as we are thinking of what size to get and how they look. But your take on it here has led me to become very interested in the shoe and brand. Thanks again.

    David

    • Hello David, thanks for the comment. You are right, a lot of sneaker heads, including hypebeasts, is not really that interesting in knowing about the sneaker, but I love to be informative when creating my sneaker blogs so people can learn about the sneaker. I am glad that you have enjoyed reading my article, and I hope I hear from you again!

  11. Hello Ahmad,

    Tha air Jordan 2 BHM are really cool sneakers especially because of the history surrounding the legendary Michael Jordan. Would be a sneaker I’ll love to have bit for sporting and for casual reasons.

    I even heard a rumour that the air Jordan collection helps you jump as high as Michael Jordan.

    Still Waiting to confirm it. Thanks for sharing.

    • Hello Louis, thanks for the comment. If only that rumor was true, we would all be as great as MJ lls. 

  12. Hi there:

    Thanks for this awesome post. I absolutely love Jordan’s. This Air Jordan 2 BHM was actually a gift for my brother this past Christmas and he wears a size 9.5. I know that Nike in general runs small regardless what size you wear. As soon as I received them from ebay, they were crisp. Not one scratch or damage to the shoe. This made my day because of previous purchases from other websites. I decided to take a chance and go with the 10 instead and I’m so glad I did. They fit like his normal size one hundred percent. I will be purchasing from ebay come any day!  

    They fit really comfortably and look good on feet so I would recommend ebay for anyone wanting to buy this shoe

    Tony.

    • Hello Tony, thanks for the comment. Ebay is definitely the best place for a sneaker purchase. Most Jordan sneakers would sell out in stores, so online shopping is the best option. 

  13. I’ve been unaware for a long time that my favourite Sneaker Air Jordan was named after the Legendary Basketball player, MJ. He’s done really great to have accepted the deal. Thanks Ahmad for letting me know this.

    I will exploit this BHM cop my own pair of the Air Jordan sneaker ASAP. I can’t afford to miss this awesome offer. 

    • Hello Muhiyb, thanks for the comment. Feel free to always check out my sneaker site for more sneaker news!!

  14. Honestly, I don’t play basketball, but I like wearing basketball shoes when I jog early in the morning. And I’m interested in buying one of these Air Jordan shoes from Nike. My current one is from Adidas, and it performed good and reliable. But I’d like to try something new aside from Adidas, and this one from Nike looks great to me. 

    I love watching Michael Jordan’s games when I was young, and he’s one of the legends in NBA that I like. Your information about the background of Air Jordan reminded me of those days when all of us here were excited to watch him (Jordan) play. Thanks for sharing these information.

    You said there’s a sale coming and it’s called Black History Month sale, am I right? Is this sale available to everyone or just for Black Americans only? I am from Asia and would like to take advantage of the sale, too. 

    • Hello Gomer, thanks for the comment. I am sorry, I didn’t say anything about a sale, but I must say that Ebay ships internationally. 

  15. Is it crazy to anyone else that folks need to be told who Mike is? He’s the best baller in history (Sorry Lebron).

     In any event, I am not a sneaker head, in fact I only wear Chucks, but I think it’s aeesome that there is a special BHM sneaker release.  I’m sure they sell like hot cakes.  Hopefully, some of the revenue generated goes to a good cause.

    Keep up the good work!

    • Hello Nate, thanks for the comment. I am pretty sure that everyone will want to cop a pair of these!

  16. Loving the Air Jordan 2! Michael Jordan’s legacy live son. These are amazing. Not only do they look friggin cool but they function really well as a basketball shoe. Comfortable, supportive and great grip. I do agree that they get dirty easily but I’m prepared to deal with that to wear these cool sneakers. Thanks for the write up.

    • Hello Ian, thanks for the comment. Feel free to check back with my site for more sneaker news in the future!

  17. I used to be a fan of M.Jordan. I love his style of playing. His products has created a huge followers all over the world. I do like the style of some of his shoes. The only thing is that a lot of them are too pricey for me. Just wish that they lower the price a little bit so that lot of his fans can afford them.

    • Hello Pecilla, thanks for the comment. These shoes are indeed high, I remember Air Jordans used to be $100. It is sad to say that the prices will continue to increase unfortunately. 

  18. Good review, Ahmed.  I really enjoyed reading it. Michele Jordon is one of those players that has set very high standards for the rest. There are many great basketball players but Micheal is a cut above the rest.  One could say that it was in his blood from the day he was born.

    I have owned a few pairs of Nike runners when I was running. I still have a pair that I use to walk in. 

    As fare as going out and spending $250+  on a pair of these? Probably won’t happen.  Too expensive and I just don’t have that kind of budget.

    That said, they look like a great shoe and the design is great to. I’d you try on a pair to see how they feel?

    Wayne

    • Hello Wayne, thanks for the comment. MJ is forever a legend indeed, and his sneakers are a everlasting trend. I can understand most people can’t afford his sneaker, so I know where you are coming from lls.
