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. During his time at the University of North Carolina in 1982, he played basketball for the North Carolina Tar Heels, and was drafted for the Chicago Bulls in 1984. He was able to entertain the crowd with his prolific scoring, defensive plays, and his ability to perform slam dunks from the free throw line at the slam dunk contests, which has earned him the nicknames: Air Jordan and His Airness.

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 5 History

The Air Jordan 5 was originally released back in February 1990, created by yours truly, Tinker Hatfield. It was the first Jordan to ever have clear rubber soles. On the midsole near the icy soles, you will also notice the flames on each side of the shoes. In Tinker’s eyes, Michael Jordan’s performance was like a “Fighter Plane”, so the sneaker was designed to look like a Fighter Plane. The Jordan 5 is an inspiration of the “grey nurse shark” or the World War 2 British Fighter Plane; the Spitfire MkV3. 3m reflection was also added on the shoe tongues. The sneakers were originally retailed for $125.00.

Features Of The Shoe

This sneaker features a blue/grey color scheme, which is shown throughout the sneaker. Additionally, the entire upper has 3m reflection, along with light blue stitching. Finally, black covers the shoelaces, side panels, and eyelets, along with a white midsole and milky translucent outsole.

Release Date

These sneakers have release today to the public. This is indeed a nice treat for the female sneakerheads. GO AND COP A PAIR NOW!!!

  1. Hi there! Great review! I have never seen that type of show before but I love Air Jordan and those look very cool! The information you provided is great! They are a bit pricey but probably worth it in all honesty. I was wondering what your favourite Jordan shoe is?

    • Hello Rashaad, thanks for the comment. My favorite Air Jordans of all time is the Air Jordan 11 Bred. There is no Jordan in the world that can top that classic kick. 

  2. This is most definitely lit. I am a very big fan of the Jordan brand and I must say that the release of the air Jordan 5 is perfectly timed. I have been on the lookout for a very suitable gift for my girlfriend who also happens to love the Jordan brand. I’ll get this for her as a surprise present and I’m sure she’ll find it pleasant.

    Thanks for sharing, man.

  3. Wow, what a wonderful history of the Air Jordan brand you have explained in your post. The only regret I have is that the Air Jordan 5 Iridescent Oil Grey is only available in Women’s sizes as I am sure it not going to fit me.

    But on the positive, the wifey is going to absolutely love it.  Can’t wait to show this post to her.

    Thanks for sharing this post.

  8. Reading Jordan’s career performances I can say that I am amazed by what he has accomplished. I am a big fan of this basketball player and at home I have many objects and shirts with this legend. These Air Jordan 5 sneakers are truly amazing and deserve their 5 star name. I would like to buy them and put them in a glass mini-window. In a few years such products will become very valuable financially and maybe one day I will auction my collection. Thanks a lot for this!

  9. Hi,

Actually I know nothing about sneakers though I have a niece that is crazy about Jordan brands I can not wait to show this post her .Thank you for sharing with us.

  10. I am impressed with the load of information on an athlete that you give.  Peope are highly motivated by their favourite athletes and likely to imitate them by purchasing their brands.  I am certain your readers will return to your page about their favourite athlete and also share it with friends because there is obviously so much content of interest.  I enjoyed that bit about the athlete telling Nike why he would not wear the shoes, which resulted in a whole new brand being developed and gave him financial security as well.  This is the kind of story that draws people in and back.  I suspect readers would want to share the page all over the media.

  11. Thank you for sharing this informative and helpful post with us.
    I enjoy reading Michael Jordan’s story you shared here. He was my favorite basketball player.

     As for the Air Jordan brand, it is my first time I come across this brand but it seems they are doing a great job. 

    Unfortunately, I am not a woman to enjoy these amazing shoes. If not, the Air Jordan 5 Iridescent Oil Gray looks great to me.  My spouse is a basketball player, I will share your post with her. I am sure she will love it!

    Thanks!

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

  12. Thanks for sharing this article. This article is a pleasure to read. I’ve always liked the Air Jordan Brand, it’s my favorite brand. I liked the blue with the white sole and the light blue stitching. In all, It is normally a very compatible shoe. I will definitely ask my husband to buy met a pair of this Air Jordon 5 shoes.

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

  13. I dig the simplicity in the look of these Air Jordan 5 Iridescent Oil Grey women’s edition basketball shoes. Just like in the video, you do not need to be a woman to wear these. However the only problem is, if you are a man with a size 11 and up, you will not fit into these. I am a size 12 which is a size 13.5 in women’s and the video says these go no higher than 12. But my girlfriend will look good in these and I will buy these for her as a Valentine’s Day gift.

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

  14. This is so exciting, I would definitely wear them. They look so practical and chic for my style. It is definitely something that I can wear everyday. This will be perfect pair when I go to work. Will definitely check them out on Ebay. Thanks you so much for your review. Cannot wait to get them!

  15. I will have to bookmark this post and come back to it along with your other post about the Super-Bowl Jordan’s. I really want to get those for my dad and who knows maybe I’ll grab a pair of this ones for myself. I haven’t had a good shoe in so many years, I think this might be a good alternative if I’m looking for something comfortable. Thank you for sharing this. I’ll be bookmarking so I don’t lose sign if it.

  16. Hi, Ahmad,

    I’m not too much into sports shoes, but these Jordans look really cool! I love the design and especially the color. It’s a pity they only come in women’s sizes. 

    They’re not cheap by any means, but you get what you pay for. Jordans are good-quality shoes. I had a pair of them when I was in college and boy, did they last! I used them both to play basketball and occasionally to go out. The memories…

    What sizes do they come in? Are they a good option for a 20-something female? I’m thinking of gift options for my cousin. What do you think? 

    • Hello Enrique, thanks for the comment. They are available in Women’s sizing, and I believe that this would be a good choice for any female. 

  17. Your guide is very awesome on Air Jordan 5 Iridescent Oil Grey – Exclusive 5s For The Women. While reading I know that Michael Jordan is a retired professional basketball player who has played for 15 seasons in NBA for the Chicago Bulls, and the Washington Wizards. Hey I enjoy your guide very much. Thanks for sharing such awesome info.

  18. The Iridescent Oil Grey ones should be a good San Valentine’s gift to my girlfriend probably. She loves to go sport everywhere and really gives priority to how comfortable she could get first than any other thing.

    I know she will really love them. They seem to be really comfortable and the brand has it’s reputation.

    Thanks a lot for a great product review post!

  19. The air Jordan is a very good brand I don’t just like them because of it name but because it is very durable shoe and it a good price for your money… because it’s a bit expensive but it’s work it I have some Jordans including air Jordan 13 and I must tell it’s one of the best shoes to get.
