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 3 History

The Air Jordan 3 was first introduced back in 1987-1988. Nike have let go of Peter Moore (designer of the Air Jordan 1 and help designed the Air Jordan 2), and Bruce Kilgore (designer of the Air Jordan 2), and needed a new designer for the Air Jordan 3. Nike has turned to the famous Tinker Hatfield, who would later be known as the creator of Air Jordans 3-15 and 20.

Michael and Hatfield would always come up with great ideas for the next upcoming Jordan sneakers, and work hard on them. The Air Jordan 3 was the first ever Jordan sneaker to be a mid top; making it light weighted with plenty of durability. The Air Jordan 3 features the Air Jordan Jumpman logo on the back of the shoe, elephant print on the toe box and near the heels, and visible air sole units (This was the first Jordans to ever have this feature). During the 1987-1988 NBA season, MJ became the winner of the Slam Dunk Contest, All Star MVP, All Defensive First Team and Defensive Player Of The Year. MJ was wearing the 3s during all this success. The Air Jordan 1 and 2, the free throw dunk, and a elephant are inspirations of the Air Jordan 3.

The 3s were originally retailed for $100.00 back in 1988.

  11. Sneakers (also called trainers, athletic shoes, tennis shoes, gym shoes, sport shoes or runners) are shoes primarily designed for sports or other forms of physical exercise, but which are now also widely used for everyday. Shoe is a generic term for all footwear worn by men and women while sneaker is a term reserved especially for athletic shoes. … While shoes can be made from many different materials, sneakers are made from synthetic fabric with rubber soles which is noiseless and comfortable.

  13. Hi Ahmad,

    I am a fan of your website and you might be aware I am a regular visitor to your site. Every single time I read an article of yours I learn so much new stuff and find helpful products.

    I love sneakers so your articles means a lot to me. The color combination is just amazing and eye-catching, those are my favorite colors. The images, the video you embedded and the detailed information you have provided are a greater help in making my purchase decision.

    The Air Jordan 3 Red Cement Chicago All Star is on my list.

  14. Now these are the hottest Air Jordan 3 basketball shoes I have seen in a long time. Don’t get me wrong, I have seen some other real nice looking AJ3s but I love the colorway look of these the best. Red has always been my favorite color. Two of the seven vehicles I have owned over the years have been red.

    The reason these are dope is because red is the main color, and rightfully so as it is the main color of the Chicago Bulls uniform. But what makes these pop is that along with an abundant amount of red they used very little white and that elephant print is eye catching! I am going to have to change my mind on a new pair of shoes and get these instead.

  15. My all time favorite basketball player and Nike is it again, they always seem to know what’s best in the designs of these sneakers. This piece looks very beautiful and I think even if it’s expensive it’s something we can gladly go out of our way to get. It’s beautiful and it has amazing features. I think it would be suitable for both sexes, that is male and female even though it looks more masculine. I would get one of these for myself and one for my lady because she actually loves them.
