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 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, since the sneakers didn’t follow the standard uniform policy and the sneaker had to be 50% white. 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.

Features Of The Shoe

This sneaker comes dressed in a turbo green, white, light grey, and sail color theme. The leather base is covered white, while the suede overlays is dressed in a turbo green. Additionally, if you look on the side panel, there is a detailed text there: “SP 19 AIR JORDAN 1 HIGH OG”.

  1. This shoe is not so popular as some of the other air jordan pairs at least it was not in my country. Jordan was just rising in popularity so these shoes although later became classic they didn’t reach the stratospheric popularity of some of the other air jordan shoes. It’s nice to see Nike releasing again the whole series. I believe a lot of people will buy them just because of the brand.

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

  2. Thank you for sharing  the post about this wonderful product. Air Jordan 1. Reading this post made me feel nostalgic about the golden days of the greatest player of all time in the NBA, Micheal Jordan.  I remember my mum getting one of the first edition of the Air Jordan sneakers in the 90’s. But this Air Jordan 1 High Turbo Green is another wonderful product from the series of the Air Jordan. I love it

  3. Oh what a beautiful sight to behold. I feel like I’m already wearing the Nike air. I’ve used a lot of Nike products and I’ve enjoyed them. There’s this feel it gives on the leg, especially when you going to the gym. As for me, I use sneakers anywhere, I could wear them for a week non stop. My love for Nike is alarming. I’ll get this.

  4. Thank you for this great and wonderful article, this is the second time am stumbling upon your blog and you always provide great review of the best quality Jordan shoes around. Micheal Jordan was a great athlete and sportsman. I think the $160 price tag for the The Air Jordan 1 High Turbo Green is highly affordable given the quality of the shoe. 

    • Hello Clement, nice to hear from you again. I am always creating new content, so check back with me as always!

  5. Dear Ahmad,

    I am a fan of Michael Jordan and to be honest I preferred Nike brand only because of him. Thanks a lot for sharing the history behind the Air Jordan 1 and I got great insights from your post and learned a lot of new things I am unaware of MJ.

    MJ’s career highlights and awards is mind-blowing and awesome. MJ rocks…

    Shocked to know Adidas & Converse rejected MJ and felt sorry for them Lol.

    The images you provided and the video you embedded is very helpful in making our purchase decision and for sure Air Jordan 1 High Turbo Green is on my list. And I think its worth the money and Nike will provide great value.

    Much Success!

  6. Wow, i never knew the nike air jordans were named afte michael jordan, legendary but this lastest release costs a lot. I love sneakers but i cant simply afford the amount it is coming for. Can i waut a while and get it for a cheaper price? I absolutely loved that nike tactics, they used to ban to create awareness about the sneakers and would surely be making a lot of money on sales on it too even with the fine.

    • Hello Aweda, thanks for the comment. You can definitely for a little to purchase, the prices should drop soon.

  7. Amazing! Just superb I tell ya!! And if I think they are iconic you say? They are phenomenal are you kidding me! I have always loved the game of basketball and right from a very young age, the word ‘Jordan’ has always been in more ways than one, synonymous to the James Naismith originated game. And the experience you feel playing in OG Jordans is simply out of this world. I’d love to own these new pair of Jordans. They are awesome. Cheers
