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.

Air Jordan 4 History

The Air Jordan 4 was introduced back in 1989, created by the infamous Tinker Hatfield. This shoe was the first Jordan to feature over-molded mesh; the mesh was dipped in soft plastic and air was blown through it to clear out the plastic. Back in 1989, everyone felt that the sneaker was unattractive and no one liked them. But overtime, it grew on a lot of people. During their first release, the sneaker was retailed at $110.00.

Features Of The Shoe

This shoe consist of a pink, true berry, and white color scheme. The leather upper is dressed in true berry, along with touches of pink on the eyelets, heart logos by the heel, jumpman logos on the heels, and the underlays as well. Finally, it comes with a white rubber sole, along with white shoe laces.

  1. Impact of Michael Jordan in marketing Nike brand to the world cannot be overemphasized, to me, it is blend of great talent in sport industry and magnificent product designs, they combined to form super fantastic combination.Your website is really worth keeping eyes on because of the latest information it gives regarding sneakers.When I read MJ’s achievement in NBA, I was like ‘damn!’

    • Hello Autofreak, thanks for the comment. Feel free to always check out my website for more sneaker content!

  2. Thank you for taking your time to write this wonderful post. the quality of Air Jordan is really immense because I could remember my mum got one for me As my 25th birthday gift back then. But reading about soon to be release Air Jordan 4 has clearly given me idea for what to get for myself for this up coming Valentine as gift. Thank you for this wonderful post.

    • Hello Kehinde, thanks again for another comment. I’m looking forward to hearing again from you soon. 

  3. Thanks for the interesting read. I didn’t know that Nike too was once a small struggling shoe company – look at what they are today. Also loved reading more about Michael Jordan. I knew he was good, but didn’t know he had so many credentials underneath him.

    Love the True Berry Sneakers, but not for the kids, for myself. Do they have adult sizes?

    • Hey Michel, thanks for the comment. I’m sorry, but they do not come in adult sizes. The sneaker only comes up to Grade school sizing and below. 

  4. I ended up on your site because I was looking for some decent ‘occasion’ sneakers for my son, and you seem to have a great selection here. 

    Are the Air Jordan 4 True Berry aimed at kids or are they aimed more at the teenage (and older) females? Sorry – I’ve been in the situation before where I’ve been looking at the wrong sex sneakers! 

    • Hello Chris, thanks for the comment. These sneakers were made intentionally for the kids and females, but there are some older people that purchase these GS size sneaker because they have small feet and can fit them. What size shoe can your son fit? 

  5. Wow.  Those are very bold shoes. The color is crazy loud.  Is this what the kids are into these days?  I have several daughters so I’ll ask what they think of them.  They must be popular though if they cost $140.00.  Law of supply and demand.  Keep up the good work.  I enjoy reading your reviews.

  6. Dear Ahmad,

    Thank you very much for your update on the Air Jordan 4 True Berry. My son is a Jordan lover and a basketball player. I am thinking about what kind of gifts I will give to my son the coming Valentine’s day. Here comes and it is going to be a wonderful gift.

    I see the release date is February 9, 2019. Where should I go to buy this? Is it possible to pre-order this?

    There are only three color, pink, true berry, and white. My son likes dark color. Is it possible to pre-order the black color?

    Happy Valentine’s day to you.

    Regards

    Anthony

    • Hello Anthony, thanks for the comment. There is a purchase link in the blog under Release Date where you can make an early purchase. What black color are you referring to? 

  7. Air Jordan 4 True Berry has immense quality considering the features as described, compared to others.  The popularity of Nike is still powered by Michael Jordan the legend whose feat in Basket ball has continued to linger on. Air Jordan 4 True Berry is a sneaker to watch out for and it just coming at the Valentine season, what a romantic sneaker to put on on a romantic day like Val day.

  8. Hey there Ahmad,

    to be honest, I have to say- Air Jordan 4 True Berry sneakers look very dope and lit! I am really digging the design of them, especially the mix of light pink and berry color with white which makes this sneakers really stand out and give off positive and vivid vibes. I am also a huge fun of leather uppers which in my eyes make sneakers stand out more and be more distinctive while also protecting feet from cold & windy weather, so it’s a plus plus for me! Another thing which I noticed is that for me personally, sneakers with leather uppers tend to make for smoother and more aesthetically pleasing transition with jeans, and by that I mean the connection between bottom of the jeans and sneaker itself (I hope You know what I mean, haha!). Oh, and I’ve also found these little dots near shoe laces to be a very nice & fresh addition, I don’t think I’ve ever seen them before on other sneakers, so they might be the first one to implement such feature? 

    All in all, thanks Ahmad for such descriptive and helpful article, best of luck to You and keep up the great work! 😉

Plus, he used to be a fan of Michael Jordan so it’s going to be even better! I’m not sure if he’d be into the color, though. Do you know if they also have a wider range if colors? Or it’s just this one.
