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 sneaker features a color scheme of Black, White, and Gym Red. Black is applied to the satin upper and the leather material located on the heel and ankle areas. Additionally, hits of Gym Red can be found on the branding on the tongue, Wings Logos, and shoelaces.

Finally, a white midsole and black rubber outsole complete the design overall.

Release Date

If you are anticipating this upcoming release, then you won’t have to wait much longer. These are dropping January 18th, and are retailing at $170.00. You must cop if you are an Air Jordan 1 fan.

    • Hello Shanta, thanks for the comment. The Air Jordan 1 is available in numerous color ways. What color are you interested in? 

  2. I truly need to initially value your exertion in assembling this incredible site and composing this article. I really liked your article. I love Air Jordan brand shoes. Air Jordan’s shoes are such a good feature that these shoes are long-lasting. This sneaker features a color scheme of Black, White, and Gym Red and it is attracting me more. I love these shoes and I will gift it to my husband. Thanks for sharing a useful and informative post.

  3. Wow! Another great design from Nike. This is simply great and I love it a lot. Michael Jordan is someone that I adore a lot. He has achieved more than enough in the world of basketball and arguably has grown to become the best of all time. I am a big fan of his sneakers brand and this one will definitely be a new addition. I love the structure and the colour.

    • Hello 👋, thanks for the comment. Feel free to always check out my site for more sneaker content,

  4. Wow! This is an awesome sneakers. I must have it. With a good design and close the ankle, surely it will be very fitting if used together with jeans. It’s gonna be catchy and looks great!
    By the way, if I order now, how long will it take to arrive at the destination? And does this sneaker have a size for a 5-year-old kids? I want to buy it for my child too.

    • Hello Asmadi, thanks for the comment. Most times, depending on your location, the sneaker would arrive into 2 or more days after being shipped. Which size does your kid wear? The lowest size in these would be GS (3.5-7y). 

  5. Hello Ahmad. Thank you for sharing this awesome update with us: the Air Jordan 1 high black satin looks really dope, I love the colour combination, the design of the shoe and everything about it. This new colour way from Jordan retro caught my full attention and I’d be excited to get one for myself.

    Regards!

    • Hello 👋, thanks for the comment. Feel free to always check out my site for more sneaker content,

  6. Ahmed, I really appreciated you letting us know the history of the Air Jordans! I had no clue there was that much of a backstory to the famous shoe. I think it’s really interesting that this new release is in the same color scheme of the original sketch showed to Michael Jordan. Funny how it comes full circle like that! For me, I think I much prefer these new releases to some of the crazy colors and styles they have released in the past! I like a mostly black color scheme, because it seems very classic and able to go with just about anything. Do you think these were purposefully made to mimic the original Air Jordan sketch or no?

    • Hello Katie, thanks for the comment. Yes indeed, the sneaker is always sketched out before being created. 

  7. I, first of all, thank you for the hard work you put in to bring this website together. I again thank you for the valuable content you provide. I enjoyed reading this article. Thanks for the great insight and this site is very useful. I enjoyed the interesting biography of MJ, Nike and Air Jordan 1. This is one of my favorite sneakers. Thanks.

    • Hello 👋, thanks for the comment. Feel free to always check out my site for more sneaker content,

  8. I personally like these a lot more than the other new arrival, the “Reverse He Got Game” ones you reviewed previously. I’d almost wear them myself although I’m not sure they’re entirely appropriate for a woman my age. However, my nephew is a huge Michael Jordan fan, and fan of these shoes, so I will show it to him and I’m sure he’ll be impressed.

    • Hello 👋, thanks for the comment. Feel free to always check out my site for more sneaker content,

  9. Hey, I enjoy a lot while reading on Air Jordan & Air Jordan Brand. I know that sneaker color scheme of Black, White, and Gym Red. Black is applied to the satin upper and the leather material located on the heel and ankle areas. I am happy to know that they are dropping January 18th. We will also go for Air Jordan 1 High Black Satin in this year 2020. 

    • Hello 👋, thanks for the comment. Feel free to always check out my site for more sneaker content,

  10. Many thanks to you for giving us such a beautiful article. I love the Air jordan  shoes and I love them. And I like the Black Collection shoes a lot and in your article I came across some special shoes which is a great article for me. I do regular sports and I need a different type of shoe for sports that will be very comfortable for my feet and these shoes I have come to your article and I will take an item from here. 

    • Hello 👋, thanks for the comment. Feel free to always check out my site for more sneaker content,

  11. Wonderful ,I really love the setting of the great website. The main menu is well arranged and is very easy to navigate and the keyword is authentic and also the content are great. I must say that you are done a great job..

    And is going to help alot of visitors to navigate….

    • Hello 👋, thanks for the comment. Feel free to always check out my site for more sneaker content,

  12. These Jordan 1s are amazing! The high tops remind me of the 80s look. I wore nothing but high tops until I couldn’t find them anymore. Like all Jordan sneakers, I’m guessing these are super comfortable. This is such a cool website you have, just covering awesome shoes. I want a pair of these, but I think they are a bit out of my pricing zone. Thank you for introducing them! I’ll tell my boys to buy me a pair for my birthday.

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

  13. Thank for for this comprehensive article write out on Air Jordan 1 High Black Satin.

    When I was younger, I heard so much about Michael Jordan and his superb basketball skills.  I was not only impressed by his height but also how sharp his shooting skills was.

    It was great that Nike approached Michael Jordan to endorse their shoes.  

    The history behind Air Jordan 1 was quite impressive. The look itself stood out from the rest of the sports shoes. Although I have never wore this sneaker before, it looks like a very comfortable sports wear for great performer.

    I look forward to another great post of yours.

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

  14. hey Ahmad 

    Wow! your site is like walking a virtual sneaker shop.

     Instantly I get the notion ‘You know what your’e talking about, I’m not really a sneaker person, I have a pair of white leather chucks and thats about it,  although they look great on guys, so when choosing I’m guessing comfort preference is key and then colour and style? This is a beaut site for gaging what is out there for the realist sneaker lover. Your thoughts and opinions are highly regarded, its was a pleasure looking thru your store.

    Erika 🙂

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

  15. Oh thanks so much for sharing this good news! Now I’m torn between this or Air Jordan Reverse. The design is so sleek and I love the simple red and black design. My budget is only enough for 1 pair. Is Air Jordan 1 High Black Satin good for running and gym? Thank you for your answer

    • Hello Al, thanks for the comment. I wouldn’t recommend these sneakers for running since they were built for basketball 🏀. But going to the gym to shoot some hoops in these would be nice 👍🏻. 

  16. These new Air Jordan sport shoes do indeed look very cool. I am considering buying a pair. Although I knew who Michael Jordan was, I didn’t know his career history in Basketball. I felt more connected to the Air Jordan Brand after reading these details. 

    I imagine that Adidas and Converse must have fired those who decided to reject teaming up with him. How could they have been so stupid. 

    Michael Jordan’s business acumen has impressed me immensely. It says a lot that his Air Jordan Brand lives on and is still so popular. Thanks for sharing.

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

  17. I’m not the kind of person who would use a huge bling-bling neither go for the neon-like style of sneakers. I don’t like that kind of attention (kind of an introverted person).

    I love the Black Over Black style. Jordan retro is definitely building a legacy and has gone beyond its generation and I hope it to become a phenomenon to last at least 5 generations to come. 

    Thanks for sharing your passion through a great post!

    • Hello ????, thanks for the comment. Feel free to always check out my site for more sneaker content.

  18. Hello there,thanks for this awesome article it would be of great help to the public as it has been of help to me.i musta say that the air Jordan 1 was one of the best then as it was very strong and durable I remember at that time if you didn’t have these shoes then you are out of class because back then Micheal Jordan was the best NBA player.and shoes was equally as popular as he was.

    • Hello 👋, thanks for the comment. Feel free to always check out my site for more sneaker content.

  19. Hello Ahmad, i have to say, how informative this article is. I told my brother about your last recommendation of Air Jordan 13 Reverse He Got Game, he was so pleased that he asked me to lookout for him in case you came up with another. Boy did you deliver.. I absolute love the black satin.

    By the way, the narrative of how MJ refused to play without the Air Jordan 1 is so compelling. To the point he was even prepared to accept a fine for it. That says a lot about the man.

    Thanks again

    • Hello 👋, thanks for the comment. Feel free to always check out my site for more sneaker content.

  20. Never heard about Air Jordan Shoes for men before until I saw your blog.  The shoes look so comfortable and they will be loved by men that play sports.  I don’t have any in my family that are active in sports that will need Air Jordan shoes but I know and have read a lot about people playing all kinds of games and will need the shoes you featured on your article.  I am sure they would love to get one and enjoy wearing the shoes.  I will also be more than happy to recommend to the sons of the mothers I know of that play basketball.

    Very good write up on the shoes and Michael Jordan!  Congratulations!

    Evelyn

    • Hello 👋, thanks for the comment. Feel free to always check out my site for more sneaker content.

  21. Great site.  I like your drive and energy and your website presents itself very well.  I also like the fact that you go into the history and how the brand air jordan was created within nike.

    I also like the fact that you explain that there are many sellers out there selling counterfit sneakers and that you have put together numerous sites listed on your website that sell authentic sneakers.

    Great Job on that.  The research you must have done for that is tremendous.

    When you put up the sites that are legitimate, why would you also add sites that do not sell the real thing.  That is something I personally would avoid and just guide your customers to the real thing. 

    On the other hand it may not be such a bad thing to list the sites in case that when you surf on the real sites the fake sites may pop up.

    • Hello 👋, thanks for the comment. Feel free to always check out my site for more sneaker content.

  22. Hi Ahmad,

    You might be aware that I am one of the regular visitors to your site. It’s mainly because of the value you provide via your articles.

    Thanks again for the informative and insightful article. I love the combination of red and black color. The images you included and the video you embedded provided me with detailed information on this product. I am a fan of Jordan and Nike. Although the rate is bit expensive this is on my list.

    This is an interesting and helpful review.

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

  23. Hi, Thank you for your great article on The Just Build It Now Air Jordan High Black Satin – A New colorway For The Famous OG.  There’s a lot of helpful information about the Air Jordan sneakers, and I enjoyed reading.  I have always loved the sport basketball and of course, everyone knows the famous basketball player Michael Jordan.  You provided great content on Michael Jordan and the History of the Air Jordan Brand.  All of the basketball lovers will definitely enjoy wearing Air Jordan Sneakers. 

    Have a great weekend,

    Margaret

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

  24. Thanks for your article!

    Wow, it is nice for you to include so much history of these shoes: both of Nike as a struggling shoe company, and Michel Jordan, as a professional basketball player. It is interesting how both Adidas and Converse rejected Jordan, unknowingly creating a competitor in the process. What is your experience of wearing these shoes, and are you planning to buy these new shoes since they come out today?

    • Hello Mikhail, thanks for the comment. No, I do not plan to purchase these since this is not an OG colorway. I am an OG sneaker collector. 

  25. Hello Ahmed,

    I would like to thank you for allowing me the opportunity to comment on your article. I really think you have done an outstanding job on your research about The Air Jordan 1, Michael Jordan, The Air Jordan Brand, and of course The Features Of The Shoe.

    I am a bit curious if more colors came out later or if there is a plan for The Air Jordan 1 to come out in more colors at some point? 

    Is the NBA still not allowing this shoe to be worn on the basketball courts, or has things changed since then?

    I must say that your article is very detailed in all of the backgrounds leading up to The Air Jordan 1, however please proof-read your article again and run a spell-check to correct misspelled words.

    Again I want to thank you for allowing me to comment on your wealth of research contained in such a wonderful article. 

    Blessings to you my friend,

    Jerry

    • Hello Jerry, thanks for the comment. Due to the popularity of the Air Jordan 1, these will continue to release in several color ways, and they are also available in many color ways right now as we speak. Things have changed over the years, you can wear the air Jordan 1 on the court.

  26. This has to be the most famous shoe created.  I’ve always been intrigued by them and they always look hot.  I didn’t know Jordan had such an issue with it all in the beginning.  I guess every legendary thing we come to hear of now days usually started out with someone not wanting to do it.  The colors are perfect too, never a let down.
