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 11 History

The Air Jordan 11 was first introduced back in 1995-1996, during Michael Jordan’s return to the NBA. Tinker Hatfield came up with the idea to make the shoe look like a shiny body convertible, so the sneaker was created with shiny patent leather. It also has a lightweight Phylon midsole with a full length air sole unit and full length carbon fiber plate, making it extremely supportive. The only bad things about the shoes were poor traction, defects on the outsole, and fast creases on the midsoles. In 1995, the retail price for the shoes were $125.00 (the low versions were $115.00).

Features Of The Shoe

This shoe consists of a gun smoke and medium grey color scheme, along with white as well. The two-tone grey covers the upper of the sneaker, while white is applied to the shoe laces and the midsole. Finally, it comes with the traditional icy translucent outsoles.

  1. Hello Ahmad. Okay so I am not one of those people who really keep up with the famous people and their names and things. But Micheal Jordan is one of those all time people that I am sure many of us know. However, I knew he had many acknowledgements, but I had no idea that there were that many. That is a very surprising amount. Thank you for sharing this information. Outstanding.

    • Hello Melissa, thanks for the comment. There are many people who is familiar with MJ, but don’t really know who he is. MJ has accomplished so much during his NBA career, and will forever be the greatest. Feel free to always check out my site for more updates!!!

  2. I knew that Michael Jordan was very talented and had won numerous awards. I did not know that he had won as many awards as he did. I was hoping for more information about the shoes but it seemed as if your post was more about the man and not the shoe. For example, how did Nike overcome their initial defects and make the shoe into one of the premier shoes out there? Was it with just advertising or did they make real changes? Your post has great potential. Keep on writing and you will have a great post.
    Thanks for the article.

    • Hello Jerry, thanks for the comment. Over the years, Nike has come up with ways to improve the performance of their footwear. An example is Flyknit; which improves the flexibility and breathability of the footwear for a much better fit. This was advertised as well, and a lot of people is happy with this idea.
