History Of The Air Jordan Brand

In 1984, Nike was a struggling shoe company look 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 11 History

The Air Jordan 11 was first introduced back in 1995-1996, during Michael Jordan’s return to the NBA. Tinker Hatfield came up with the idea to make the shoe look like a shiny body convertible, so the sneaker was created with shiny patent leather. It also has a lightweight Phylon mid sole with a full length air sole unit and full length carbon fiber plate, making it extremely supportive. The only bad things about the shoes were poor traction, defects on the out sole, and fast creases on the mid soles.

In 1995, the retail price for the shoes were $125.00 (the low versions were $115.00).

Features Of The Shoe

This new iteration features both the Bred and Concord colorways incorporated into one. It features black patent leather on the mudguard and white leather upper. Additionally, it comes with a white mid sole and red rubber out sole as well.

Finally, a red number “23” and black Jumpman can be seen on the heel of the sneaker.

  5. HI AHMAD BALLARD, 

    Air Jordan 11 Low Gym Red sneakers are just adorable. i wish these were a wee bit cheaper. Though i am not a fan of low top sneakers, but there is no way that you can say no to these.  Superbly designed and very appropriate colors. 

    I wish you would cover sneakers of the Legends of the last 30-40 years and how the shoes developed over a period of time. 

    Love,

    Aparna
