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 Air Jordan 5 (According To Footlocker.com)

  • Synthetic and textile upper delivers a classic look with comfort and durability.
  • Nike Air Units provide bouncy, lightweight cushioning for all-day comfort.
  • Stretch-knit internal bootie provides a snug, secure fit.
  • Durable rubber outsole offers secure traction on a variety of surfaces.
  • Adjustable lace toggle.

Additional Features

This sneaker features 3 original colorways from the Air Jordan 5: “Grape”, “Metallic Silver”, and “Fire Red”. The Grape theme can be found on the tongue. Next, the Fire Red theme is featured on the ’23” on the side of the sneakers and midsole.

Finally, you will notice that the majority of the upper has the Metallic Silver theme.

Release Date

Are you copping these 5s? If so, the retail price is set at $200.00. The release date is June 20th, so be ready.

  1. Michael Jordan has done it again! I don’t think there is a Air Jordan I don’t like. The grape colorway has always been my favorite color Jordan. The good thing about Jordan’s for us ladies is, we can grab a pair men/boys Air Jordan and they are still going to look good. These J’s with some skinny jeans and a fresh T, would be a hit! Perfect for a casual cute 🙂 day. Thanks for keeping us update with latest hottest Air Jordan’s!

  2. nice content, nice release as usual. 

    Thanks for always keeping us updated. 

    I’m personally a “5” head; The 5’s are my favorite Jordan of all time.

    I wish They had incorporated the Grape in there a little more than just the tongue, But it’s definitely worth the try.

    Anyway Looking forward to it and I will be trying to cop one for the first time on release date ahah.

    Cheers

  3. Hi Ahmad,

    Good article “Combine The Top 3 Air Jordan 5s, And You Get This: The Air Jordan 5 Top 3 – The Latest Sneakers”.

    U seem to be a pro at writing about sneekers. great niche and good information, man. 

    I just wish my kids don’t start demanding these shoes. Who’s gonna buy them this stuff. Must be terribly expensive.

    Well, stay cool.

    Thanks.

  5. I liked the extensive history behind Michael Jordan! I didn’t know he retired three times from the NBA. Further, it made me think about the context on where the shoes came from. The shoes look good! I enjoyed the review and how you put all the details here. Thank you for your post.

  6. Hey

    Ahmad bro I’m not a huge sneaker fan, I just appreciate nice shoes but BRO! This is the second post I’m reading about Jordans and I must admit, you are turning me into a fan. I mean a sneaker was designed after a guy who looked like a fighter plane when playing. This is pure creativity and adds an element of personal touch and uniqueness to the design which is something I’m starting to fall in love with.

  7. The encapsulated forefoot air 

    unit is a bit thinner than the 

    visible air unit in the heel, 

    making the forefoot lower to 

    the ground and giving the 

    shoe a good court feel.

    They look great and feel great. 

    I was having trouble finding these 

    Jordan’s in a store locally so found 

    them here and they came super fast.

     Actually caught me off guard because

     I don’t expect them for another week. They are authentic. I’m happy!

I bet the shoe stores will be packed with people wanting to buy the shoe. Hope you’re one of the lucky ones to get one! I must say I love Jordan’s story…just finished watching The Last Dance. 

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

  18. Thanks for your review.
    Air Jordan basketball shoes are an institution and just seem to be getting better and even more varied with this 30th anniversary release.  Wow, I cannot believe it has been 30 years already.  And Air Jordan 5’s date back to 1990.

    This is a nice casual looking shoe, and looks quite light.
    I really enjoyed reading your history of this brand and Michael Jordan. It is also amazing the read the history of Nike, that they were battling back in 1984, so this shoe was a big breakthrough for them.  As for Michael Jordan, I was surprised to hear someone criticise him recently, saying he was a narcissist.  Can you shed any onion on this criticism?
      
    Nike really has been at the leading edge of athletic and casual footwear for some time now and they deserve the credit and high price tag.
    Thanks for your comprehensive review, I know everything about these sneakers and would feel part of history to wear them.

    • Hello John, thanks for the comment. According to the perspective of The Last Dance, it was stated that he was petty and suffered from narcissism. But I doubt it because he doesn’t have a disorder that shows he has an inflated sense of his importance. He did have the attention of the other players, lack of empathy to others losing to him, and had some troubled relationships with his wife and fellow players, which are conditions similar to narcissism.

  19. Wow i must say this is a very comprehensive list and i must say if i were you i would also pic out these trio out of the amazing array of air jordans ..thanks a lot for sharing this awesome article i hope it helps others as it has helped really know some things about the legendary Micheal Jordan.

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

  20. I have always been a big Jordan fan. Back in the day when he was active I would know all the stats of his previous games and follow his season game to game.

    Father’s day is around the corner and there is no better way to celebrate it than to purchasing a pair of sneakers like these for your dad (if I were speaking I’d raise my voice at the end of that sentence, LOL).

    Once I see my comment on your site, I’ll forward this post to my sons to see what happens. 🙂

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

  21. Thank you for your post. It is exciting time for our family. My son loves The Air Jordan and he told me that the The Air Jordan 5 is coming out soon. Here I get confirmation from you and the release date is on June 20, 2002, just two days away.

    The Air Jordan is a symbol of Michael Jordan, who is the hero for our family. I still remember vividly he played for the Bulls and won the NBA Championship in 1991. After this, he won two NBA Championship consecutively, which are huge achievements. We would like to have full collections of the Air Jordan Brand. What a great member for such a great talent in basketball history.

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

  22. Hey pretty awesome post and the video is great. Whodda thunk it, the young members of our family are all Air Jordan Fans. I think its great. I am impressed with your site and content. Chris.

  23. The marketing video is great.  I like the way you’re not all hot about every shoe Nike offers.  That lends lots of credibility to what you are saying.  I’m going to use that for sure.  I have young family members and I took one of them last week to meet a lady selling a pair of Air Jordans he just had to have.  He’s 13, mows several yard every week and spends his money as he chooses.  This last week he bought a pair of leather upper Air Jordan Nike.  I think your niche is a total winner and your site is very cool.  Chris.      

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

  24. What a fascinating bit about the history of the Air Jordan brand and how it ended up in the Nike stable, rather than with one of the competitors. I am not a great fan of synthetic fabrics being used in shoes as it really makes my feet hot and sweaty.

    Do you know if they are using virgin synthetics, or are they using recycled plastic fibers which would be far more eco friendly. 

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

  25. Nice work. I like the way you put some history in there, for some people might not know about the brand. I’ve only had one pair of Jordans years ago, but I can say they were worth the $100 I paid for them. Shoes can get very pricey now days but with Jordans you always get what you pay for. Good job on your content. look forward to seeing more of  your site.

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

  26. Everyone knows how fantastic Air Jordan 5 sneakers are – such quality and what a fashion statement too! I’m loving that the new Air Jordan 5 Top 3 features the 3 original colorways – these are great looking sneakers and I can’t wait to get my hands on a pair for my hubby now that they have have launched! I will be looking our for these in my favourite stores.
