The Air Jordan 1 History

The Air Jordan 1 was first introduced way back in 1984-1985, created by Peter Moore. Michael Jordan has become the Rookie Of The Year, and played in the All-Star game. It was the first basketball shoe wore in the NBA that featured multiple colors. MJ first disliked the sneaker, but started to grew on him overtime. During that time, the famous sneaker was banned by Commissioner of the NBA, David Stern. MJ wasn’t allowed to wear the shoes on the court, but MJ refused to play without them anyways. He was fined $2,000 for every time he worn the sneakers on the court. However, Nike has covered the fines, and also gave the Air Jordan 1 the “The Shoe Banned By The NBA” label. There were over 23 different color variations released, and the Air Jordan 1 also came with two sets of shoe laces that matched the colorway on the sneakers. The shoe was originally retailed at $65.00.

Inspired by the¬†orange Gatorade flavor, this shoe consist of an leather dressed in an overall of orange. You can also notice the Gatorade sign located by the heel, embossed branding on the tongue tags, Gatorade branding located in the insole, and on the transparent outsole. These sneakers will come in a special edition “Like Mike” box, along with a special orange hangtag, three sets of shoe laces, and a Gatorade x Jordan brand towel as well.

  1. Pretty cool looking pair of Jordans! You’re definitely going to stand out in a crowd wearing a pair of these guys. I suppose that is kind of the point though huh?
    Are these guys mostly just for showing off, or are they going to stand up to a bunch of play as well?
