The Glorious History of Jordan 1s:


The Air Jordan 1s are plain and simply the most important model of the entire sneaker culture. In every practical sense, the kick start to the sneaker industry began when the stars of Michael Jordan and Nike aligned in 1984, birthing the legendary shoe. From the many original releases in 1985-86 to the virtually uncountable number of retro variations and colorways years later the air Jordan one is as popular as ever.


These sneakers have impressed the fans over the years and have won the hearts of the next generation of sneaker collectors. After all, it began the air Jordan line, the most popular series of sneakers in the world and the reason many enter the sneaker collecting culture in the first place. Everything had to work out exactly the way it did for the Air Jordan one to exist. The other famous shoe brand Michael Jordan actually preferred, had to pass on signing him out of college. Converse was distracted by the already established superstars Larry bird and magic Johnson. Sonny Vaccaro had to convince the upstart athletic shoe brand Nike to throw money at the fresh-out-of-college Michael Jordan. After the partnership with Michael Jordan and the Swoosh was set, it was up to Nike designer Peter Moore to create the first signature shoe for the man that became the game’s greatest player ever. The first air Jordan 1 was released in 1985 at a retail price of eighty-five dollars. Believe it or not, that was a lot of money for buying a sneaker back then, which meant that the Air Jordan line was elevated to a higher tier right from the beginning.


When the air Jordan one was released in the bred colorway, it received the nickname ‘banned’, because the NBA banned it due to the color restrictions they had for NBA uniforms. The infamously banned colorway made an appearance on the late show with David Letterman, when he interviewed Michael Jordan. In this way, Nike was clever enough to promote the colorway in this way. Making so many headlines, the banned colorway continued to be featured in many Nike commercials.


The air Jordan one is the only model worn by Michael Jordan for more than one full season. After completing his rookie season on the shoe, he continued to wear them for his sophomore campaign. But not for so long, on October twenty-sixth, 1984, Michael Jordan had suffered an almost career-ending injury. Michael Jordan had fractured the navicular tarsal, a small bone in his left foot, just three games into his sophomore campaign. This injury caused Michael Jordan to end up being sidelined for sixty-four games. Despite the obstacle, Nike took the air Jordan 1 and added some additional support and straps to the shoe to help Michael Jordan make his return on March 15, 1985. In 2017, it sold for fifty-five thousand dollars at auction. 1986 is perhaps the greatest mystery of the entire air Jordan line. The canvas-constructed air Jordan one KO came out of nowhere, leaving Jordan fans puzzled as to what the KO even meant. The AJKO consisted of a different wings logo, which had AJKO written on it, and the canvas build separated it from the classic Air Jordan one.


Design Details of Jordan 1s:


After ratification with Nike, Michael Jordan had to wait for almost an entire year to get his first shoe. He was often found wearing the Nike Air Ship in his rookie season, which would ultimately become the shoe that was banned by the NBA, as discussed earlier. That, of course, did not stop Nike from playing on the barred theme when it released the Jordan 1s. With Michael Jordan being such an advantage to Nike’s set-up, Phil Knight, Nike’s creator, comprehended that Michael Jordan’s first signature sneaker had to be immense. Nike’s creative director, Peter C. Moore, landed the role of scheming Jordan’s sneaker. Although there were few particulars provided by Michael Jordan on how he wanted the sneaker to look, he did give Moore two things to work with the sneaker needed to be lower cut than others and it had to be exciting. A blend of elastic leather, a large Nike Swoosh, and ornamented the athletic sneaker. The crucial detail, however, was the Wings logo. Drawn on the back of a napkin by Moore, the Wings logo was a combination of Jordan and Nike. A basketball with wings featured the words “Air Jordan,” playing off Michael’s athletic ability and Nike’s Air Technology.



Colorways of Jordan 1s:


The Jordan 1s has the most original colorways of any air Jordan model still to this day. The three Chicago bulls’ friendly colorways include Chicago, Bred, and black toe. These colorways were the only ones you ever saw Michael Jordan wore on court, but a plethora of other colors was released including royal, Carolina, and metallic colorways.


On the wings of the shoe, there is an air Jordan logo on it. and then there is the Nike Air logo on the tongue of the shoe. The leather quarter panels are made up of soft leather with Nike Air cushioning on the sole.
