Who Is Michael Jordan?

Michael Jordan is a retired professional basketball player who has played for 15 seasons in NBA for the Chicago Bulls, and the Washington Wizards.

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 12 History

The Air Jordan 12 was introduced back in 1996, designed by Tinker Hatfield. This sneaker was inspired by the Japanese Rising Sun, featuring flowing lines reminiscent of the sending out its morning rays. Did you know that the Air Jordan 12 got started with a woman’s fashion shoe known as “Nisshoki”, a shoe from the 19th century??? This was because Michael Jordan is big on fashion.

Also, if you look closely at the sneaker’s tongue, you will notice “TWO3” written down the tongue. MJ came up with a new and different idea for his number 23, so it has got a different look on the sneaker. Michael Jordan, despite suffering from the flu, has worn these in a game against the Utah Jazz, scoring 38 points.

This was also the first Jordan to utilize Zoom Air Technology for lightweight cushioning and lightning quick responsiveness. It also includes a modified herringbone pattern for improved traction.  The original retail price for the Air Jordan 12 was $135.00.

Features Of The Shoe

The shoe features a leather, with grey covering the majority of the sneaker. Hits of bright pink can be found around the forefoot, branding on the heels, outsole, and insole. Finally, you will notice the rubber midsoles dressed in white.

  1. Thanks for the Air Jordan 12 GS Grey Pink review. I’ve been waiting for the shoes’ release since last month because I want to buy it as a gift for my friend. It’s indeed stylish and I like the fact that it has good ankle support and easy to clean. Its’ heaviness is a bit drawback but I’m sure my friend can manage it. I’ll check Amazon to buy it. Thank you

  2. Thank you so much. The long awaited release date. is here . I’ve been waiting for this shoe so I can get it for my younger sister whose birthday is abit later this month. I think she’d like this too since she always admires my collection of airjordan too. I just hope she doesn’t feel its too heavy

  3. Wow, these are some adorable sneakers for the little sneakerheads! The pink and grey design is something that would fit with almost any girls wardrobe. Air Jordan’s are such classics that they’ll look hip for a long time instead of just being a passing fad. They do look a bit on the heavy side, so maybe they aren’t best for everyday wear. Great looking sneakers though!!

  5. Hi

    That is one good looking pair of sneakers. It is something I am interested in, as I can use a comfortable pair, as long as they are long lasting. I enjoyed reading about the history about the sneakers and I bet you that Michael Jordan is glad he gave his endorsement.

    Who would have thought the shoes will still be going strong many years after first coming on to the market.

    Thank you for this review.

    I like how they offer good ankle support and more importantly Good traction. It can really help my cousin with her workouts. 

    The price looks very reasonable for me.

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

  9. Very nice looking sneakers, Ahmad. They are on my list for buying as a gift. 

    I was interested if you recommend these sneakers for playing basketball, or are they made only for lifestyle wearing? Are they going to wear out soon if used for playing basketball on hard ground?

    Thanks a lot!

    • Hello Teodor, thanks for the comment. You can even wear them to style in, or play basketball in them since that is most they were made for. You will begin to notice some wear and creases the more you play in them. 

  10. The 12’s are looking pretty crispy to buy for my younger niece! Ankle support is a definite bonus too.

    It’s good to know that these are said to be easy to clean, and will stay clean for a decent amount of time, but I’m not really sure on how to actually clean them. If you could give me some tips to keep them fresh, I’d appreciate it. 

    Thanks for the info!

    • Hello Anthony, thanks for the comment. I happen to own a few pair of 12s, and I normally use a toothbrush, warm water, soap, and a dry cloth to clean mines. 

  11. This is exactly what I was looking for, a pair of Air Jordan sneaker. My niece loves Air Jordan sneakers, and I’m getting one for her birthday. The newly released Air Jordan 12 GS with grey and pink color looks really nice. My niece will love the sneaker even though it is heavy 🙂

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

  12. Thanks for the review of this particular pair of sneakers.

    It’s a shame they don’t have any for adult sizes (or that I don’t know anyone of this age who might appreciate a present) but here’s to hoping something will change. I do love anything that’s connected to MJ. Total fan over here! 🙂

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

  13. Thanks for this review. Air Jordans are really high quality sneakers. I I think I have had that kind of sneakers once before and if I remember correctly they are very comfortable. That was very interesting the story you told about the Air Jordan brand. Thank you for that information.

    I never realized there could be so much of a story behind a design for a shoe. I am also surprised that those other companies did not accept Michael Jordan’s application. But how would they have known how successful it would be?

    Well I have really enjoyed this article and I will check out more of your sneaker reviews to see if I can find one that I like. I guess when I think about what sneakers to get I will also consider the story behind the sneakers from now on.

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

  14. These look like a good fit for my daughter. She is tiny -only 4’11- but she loves sneakers. She used to run cross-country in high school and she still works out several times a week.
    The colors would suit her as well. I just bought her a pair of gray shorts with pink highlights and a matching tank top. These would totally complete that ensemble!
    Our last name is “Jordan” and we traditionally gift each other with some kind of Jordan apparel for Christmas. My husband and I made a habit of buying each of our 5 kids a pair of Baby Air Jordans when they were tiny, so we have been long-time fans of the brand.
    Thanks so much for the info about this shoe and His Airness!
