2MD Nike Advice – AIR JORDAN I
The most iconic Nike shoe ever? Possibly!
Our pick of the month is the classic Air Jordan 1, immortalized by the greatest basketball player to ever grace the earth: Michael Jordan. The sneakers were worn by Jordan in each of his six championship wins with the Chicago Bulls. The shoes were designed specifically for Michael Jordan by Nike. He was the only person to wear the shoes for one year, after which the Air Jordans were sold to the public in 1985.
The success of Jordan on the court made the custom-made shoes legendary. Nike still designs new versions of the iconic shoes today, 36 years after launching the first design. The cultural legacy of the Air Jordans is hard to overstate. One could even say that the Air Jordans were a catalyst for sneaker culture as a whole. A perfect fit for our 2MD collection!
