You may not know this but Michael Jordan initially was not interested in signing with Nike and that is how the Air Jordan 1, and consequently the entire Air Jordan line, came to be. It may shock and surprise you that back when he was still a member of the North Carolina Tar Heels, Michael Jordan preferred playing in Chuck Taylor All-Stars by Converse. At the beginning of his NBA career, he was quite eager to sign with Converse, but as you know that never happened. It has been 33 years since its debut and NIKE SNEAKERS recently hosted the “Week Of Ones” in celebration of this iconic model.
How Did This Never-Ending Lineup Of Air Jordan Releases Kick Off?
Nike made a rather comprehensive pitch in order to convince him, which was basically that he would have his own brand and be the face of it. This was an offer Michael Jordan could not refuse and that laid the foundation for Jordan Brand. The Air Jordan 1 was actually designed for him because he did not feel comfortable Nike sneakers because they had thick soles. The birth of the Air Jordan 1 forever altered the sneaker culture and enabled Nike to become the leading footwear brand in the world of basketball. Eventually, the Air Jordan 1 made its retail debut back in 1985 and the rest is history.
