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 4 was introduced back in 1989, created by the infamous Tinker Hatfield. This shoe was the first Jordan to feature over-molded mesh; the mesh was dipped in soft plastic and air was blown through it to clear out the plastic. Back in 1989, everyone felt that the sneaker was unattractive and no one liked them. But overtime, it grew on a lot of people. During their first release, the sneaker was retailed at $110.00.

  6. Jordan is a name that would be remembered in time to come. The man, the sport, the legend. The best in his time. Love how you broke down the history behind the man behind Jordan sneakers. This one that was reviewed I am not too fond of this shoe at all. I don’t know if the pictures and the angles of the shoe didn’t do it justice or what. Maybe if I see them I real I may say otherwise. Nevertheless, love your article.

  10. Oh my my. This one is the real bomb here. Can’t believe they actually made a an air Jordan for the Jamaican carnival. That one has to be super lit I must say. I like the design and the feel around the sneakers though plus it really looks like a sneaker that even I should cup pretty soon. Thanks for the intro on who Jordan is.

  11. These Air Jordan 4 Rasta certainly look smooth, cool and rugged. The colors are certainly flavored of Jamaica and the Air Jordan logo is certainly handsomely displayed throughout the shoe. The shoe designers at Nike certainly do their jobs right. So. these shoes are made for the ladies. Well, I am no lady but I would be proud to sport these shoes around town. Great review and great article.

  14. This sneaker is actually genius. I love my basketball shoes and this Air Jordan has a lot of things I like about it, the breathable technology, lightweight and color options. I want one for my upcoming basketball tournament near the end of the year. I think these would be amazing for that, thanks a lot.

  15. I consider myself as a shoe buff and I must state Air Jordans are easily the best sneakers out there. The Air Jordan 4 Rasta is a true beauty but it’s a bit of a downer for me as it’s predominantly a female sneakers. My daughter’s birthday is coming up soon and I’ll consider getting one of these for her.

  19. Just like a champion that Michael Jordan is, so is the Air Jordan 4 which features a white tumbled leather upper that calls for black accents on the eyestays, tongue branding and sock-liner, all while calling for pops of red, and yellow on the fishnet paneled midfoot and tongue. 

    Michael Jordan do have the taste for great build on sneakers though and their always serve the best purposes both for indoors and outdoor uses and also at a affordable price rate to able to be afforded by all caliber of people
