The Air Jordan signature series of basketball shoes are what we consider the best and most influential shoes ever designed. All started by what many consider the best player to ever play the game of basketball– Michael Jordan. It’s crazy to think that Jordan wanted to sign with adidas at first for his signature series but reports state that there was a lot of issues going on with adidas during that time. Whatever the reason was, Nike landed His Airness and the rest is history. To this day the Air Jordan signature line is the best selling brand of shoes for Nike.
At a time when all basketball shoes were white per NBA league rules, Nike went on to release the Air Jordan 1 in a Black/Red colorway that would force the NBA to fine Michael Jordan every time he played in them. Today Air Jordans are a cultural phenomenon and are the most highly desired series of sneakers in the world. Jordan Brand only releases very limited supplies of Air Jordan Retros every year. Air Jordans still receive the Retro treatment with new and exciting colorways which will always create hype and demand for years to come.
