Basketball Nike Air Jordan 1 Shoes

Air Jordan, also known simply as Jordans, are a brand of shoes and athletic apparel produced by Nike originally designed for and endorsed by former professional NBA basketball player Michael Jordan. The Air Jordan line is now sold by the Jordan Brand subsidiary of Nike. Since its first release in 1985, there have been new designs of the shoe released each year, even after Michael Jordan retired from the NBA.

Designed by Peter Moore, Nike released the sneakers in 1985, the Air Jordan I pair of sneakers was considered a breakthrough in basketball shoe design, although its design was improved upon later with the Nike Dunk. The shoes are similar to the Air Force 1 highs but without the strap and Jordan logo. The shoe initially gained a great deal of publicity and interest because its vibrant black and red color violated the league's uniform rules and because Michael was fined five thousand dollars every time he wore the shoes during a game. Nonetheless, other companies scrambled to emulate the design and introducing knock-off brands of the Air Jordan line. In 1994 the Air Jordan 1 was re-released. The Air Jordan 1 has been the most reproduced retro with over 90 colorways.
Jordan was wearing the Air Jordan I when he scored a league playoff-high 63 points against the Boston Celtics in the 1986 NBA Playoffs.
