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 consist of a black, white, crimson  tint, and hyper pink color scheme. Pink and black cover the leather upper, while the sneaker also features a white midsole along with a pink rubber outsole. Finally, it comes with the traditional wings logo on the side of shoe and Nike Air Branding on the tongues.

I always wear being and try to find some shoes that would match my outfits, these look like the right ones – and they also have some black, which makes my job even easier. But are these designed for men? That’s how they look to me… Are they going to release a women version any soon – or they already did? I’m seriously interested.

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

  11. Hello,

    Even if I am no expert in Basketball, I know who Michael Jordan is and I have heard about his collaboration with Nike. But after reading this article, I learned so much about the story behind these shoes. And I didn’t know about all Jordan’s accomplishments. Now I finally understand why he is so famous.

    Very interesting article. 



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

  12. Wow I was not aware that back in the days there was a dress code for a basketball player. Wow! What a strategy for Nike to do something different. This one the Air Jordan logo looks a bit different, usually it’s MJ himself in the middle of the wing. This is so cool let me spread this to all my sneaker friends. The price isn’t that bad at all. Thanks for the review and the history of Air Jordan 🙂

    PS. The Air Jordan is coming out on my birthday lol how awesome is that?

    • Hello Nuttanee, thanks for the comment. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! I hope you are enjoying it. These would be a great birthday gift for you. 

  13. This looks great. My health remains my biggest asset, and I don’t play with keeping fit and doing things that make me stay healthy, which includes exercises. I have always followed the Nike Air Jordan brand and I can say they have the best sneakers around.  The Air Jordan 1 High Crimson sneaker looks great going by your description and definitely would offer good value for money. I look forward to having one!

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

  14. My favorite brand for all my sportsware is Nike and I am always interested in their products. I know of Michael Jordan because this inspirational quote by him – ” I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying…… Michael Jordan ” – is one of my favorites.

    I loved the history of the Air Jordan Brand which you have detailed.  I found it interesting to find that Nike has turned to rookie Michael Jordan to order to make an endorsement deal, but MJ showed no interest at all. When Adidas and Converse rejected him, he finally signed with Nike.

    I must show my son your article, as he is actually looking for a pair of trainers.

    • Hello Labulo, thanks for the comment. Feel free to always check out my website for more updates!

  22. Hi! I commend you for this detailed review. And it’s my first time to know the history of Air Jordan as well as Michael Jordan being rejected by two popular brands of rubber shoes (“Unfortunately, both of the brands rejected him.”). Anyways, I’m actually eyeing an Air Jordan for my son. I think this fits him well. Thank you for the helpful information. Wishing you the best!

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

  23. Thanks for your indepth analysis. It always feel awesome to see professionals writing on products. You have successfully tantalised me with your write up. Simply wowed by your accurate and factual information on Michael Jordan. As intriguing as the pieces of information disseminated in this post are, I wish to question further on the aspect of the pricing. Though much information’s were given out but I’m still clueless as to what the price range of this product could be.

    • Hello Ro, thanks for the comment. Depending on the sales and quantity of the shoes, the value would usually increase if they are in high demand. Otherwise, the value can decrease.  

  24. This are sneakers that have a history and the brand has come to stay. For those of us who love them, the durability, comfort and easy to clean nature are really very desirable, Just that one is used to the shape and craves for more. I would want to ask if there are plans to change the shape in the nearest future.

    • Hello Idara, thanks for the comment. I don’t believe that they will change the shape. They usually just re-release the sneaker in different color variations. 

  25. Those are some good looking shoes. My husband would love them! I had no Idea about the history of MJ. That was really fun to learn about how the air Jordans came about. I bet Adidas and Converse are kicking themselves now! isn’t it crazy how effective marketing is? Nike paying $2000 fine every time he played knowing that it would be worth it. 

    Such a fun post! I may have to get some for my husband and son. 

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

  26. I like these shoes! Only in another color for me, honestly. Now, I’ve always been a fan of these kind of sneakers, since they look good on me. It is also said it is better for your back, but I don’t know about that. I have one question, do they ship to Belgium of not? Else it is a bit sad for me! 

    • Hello Emmanuel, thanks for the comment. Yes, they do ship internationally. Just select international shipping when checking out. 

  27. I’m so excited to come across this interesting fashion review of Air Jordan 1 High Crimson Tint. Most especially, I love its black, white and hydro pink colour combinations. It looks really durable and highly compatible. I have always loved Air Jordan sneakers but this one is extremely extraordinarily gorgeous. Its pros are just awesome. A must buy. I’m making a purchase as fast as I can. Thanks for this review.
