The Air Jordan is designed, owned and produced by Michael Jordan. The Jordan Brand consists of shoes and athletic clothing. The shoe concept was made by Michael Jordan, and drawn by Peter Moore, Tinker Hatfield, and Bruce Kilgore. Informally referred to as Jordans, the shoes were first produced by Michael Jordan, and released to the public in 1985. This was after Nike gave Michael Jordan and his line of sneakers and athletic clothing a unique logo. This line was created to be different from Nike’s earlier basketball efforts. The first shoe Jordan 1 was banned by National Basketball Association (NBA) for not meeting the uniform code. The NBA fined Michael Jordan and Nike $5000 for every game he wore them. Because of the huge demand for the shoe, they paid the fine and released Jordan 2. The elephant print and the better looking Jordan’s were designed by Tinker Hatfield, who is a leading designer for the Jordan’s. Air Jordan has since evolved from the original basketball shoes to models for different uses.
Air Jordan’s become an instant hit on their released, and they are the top signature shoes ever produced by Nike. The Jordan Brand is a major force in both the basketball and lifestyle markets. Though Michael Jordan retired from basketball, Air Jordan’s are still the highest selling models. Retro Air Jordan’s are remakes of the classic Air Jordan’s either slightly redesigned to reflect current trends or in the colors Michael Jordan wore during his basketball years. Retro Jordan’s, first introduced after Michael Jordan’s first retirement, have since become one of the hottest releases. Air Jordan’s are released frequently and here are the views for the top 10 brands in 2017.
