The History of Air Jordans
When Michael Jordan got drafted for the Chicago Bulls and signed with Nike back in 1984, basketball and sneaker culture would never be the same. From that original Air Jordan 1 to today's retro Jordan shoes and performance models from the likes of Carmelo Anthony, Blake Griffin, and Russell Westbrook, Air Jordans (and master designer, Tinker Hatfield) have changed sneaker, sports, and pop culture in a way that no other signature basketball shoe line has or probably will. It might be safe to say that Js are here to stay.
What started as a signature shoe for an emerging player, has grown into a brand that gives you the hottest Jordan Sneakers, apparel and accessories. MJ may no longer be playing the game, but Blake Griffin, Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony, and Chris Paul are representing Jordan Brand on the hardwood. Jordan Brand is represented not just on the court but in pop culture with the help of Drake and his newest Jordan kicks. Jordans have changed sneakers, sports, and pop culture in a way that nobody could have ever imagined. Make a statement when you hit the streets in a fresh pair of Retro Jordans.
