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 1 History

The Air Jordan 1 was first introduced way back in 1984-1985, created by Peter Moore. Michael Jordan has become the Rookie Of The Year, and played in the All-Star game. It was the first basketball shoe wore in the NBA that featured multiple colors. MJ first disliked the sneaker, but started to grew on him overtime. During that time, the famous sneaker was banned by Commissioner of the NBA, David Stern, since the sneakers didn’t follow the standard uniform policy and the sneaker had to be 50% white. MJ wasn’t allowed to wear the shoes on the court, but MJ refused to play without them anyways. He was fined $2,000 for every time he worn the sneakers on the court. However, Nike has covered the fines, and also gave the Air Jordan 1 the “The Shoe Banned By The NBA” label. There were over 23 different color variations released, and the Air Jordan 1 also came with two sets of shoe laces that matched the colorway on the sneakers. The shoe was originally retailed at $65.00.

Features Of The Shoe

This shoe comes dressed in Clay Green, White, and Black. It will feature the “Black Toe” theme, while Clay Green is located on the heel, Nike Swoosh, Nike Air branding on the tongue, and the outsole. Also, you will notice a royal flush on the insoles.

  1. Hi Ahmad!

    Awesome post! I really loved reading through all of Michael Jordan’s accomplishments. He had a great career. I was thinking of buying my son a new pair of shoes and these might be exactly what he is looking for.

    I especially love reading about the Air Jordan 1 history!

    Great post! I will visit again!

    • Hello Steven, thanks for the comment. I am pretty sure that your son would love these!! I will be glad to hear from you again soon!!!

  2. I didn’t know that there were so many types of sneakers just for Nike. Amazing! To tell the honest truth, I cannot tell the difference between some of them except the price. I like the ladies foam ones. Are they as comfy as they look? I have never owned a pair of sneakers (I am 67) but you are making me rethink. Good for doing walking meditation in. Tracy
