If we talk about basketball legends, it is impossible for the name of Michael Jordan not to come to mind. And the same thing happens when we talk about sneakers. If we have to think of legendary sneakers, surely the Air Jordan 1 is one of the first ones we mention. It could not be otherwise, since Nike was inspired by the popular NBA player and even took his name to create these legendary basketball shoes.
It was in the mid-80s when Nike created the Jordan brand and, thanks to its good reception, they continued to launch a new model each season with the idea of renewing Michael Jordan’s sports shoes. The first Air Jordan 1s were created to measure for the player, but some time later they began to manufacture standard sizes for anyone.
