Michael Jordan, the founder of the famous sneaker

In 1984, Michael Jordan began his professional basketball career. Michael Jordan became the top scorer in his first year in the NBA and received the award Rookie of the Year from the NBA. As a result of this equal success, Jordan was given the opportunity of Nike to design his own shoe. Peter Moore is the chief designer of the Air Jordan 1 in collaboration with Jordan. Jordan had demands on the design of the shoe, the Air Jordan did not just have to become a sneaker. At first, the Air Jordan was only available for Jordan himself. After some time, the Air Jordan came to the market for everyone. The success of Jordan on the field also made the Air Jordan a great success. Everybody wanted to have some Air Jordan. The first pairs of Air Jordan are therefore genuine collectors items that every sneaker enthusiast would like to add to his or her collection.
Jordan has meant a lot to the Nike brand. In 1984, on the insistence of his parents, he signed a contract with the sports brand. He would get $250,000 if he played a competition on Nike sneakers. This marked the beginning of an enormous success. Instead of the expected $3 million that would go over the bench, shoes were sold to Jordan for as much as $126 million. But this was not the highlight for the Jordan sneakers. The fact that in 1984 you were only allowed to enter the basketball field on white sneakers but Jordan did so on his famous red sneakers, the sales figures just went up even more. He was even fined $5,000 each match for not wearing the white sneakers, but this did not bother him. Jordan had made his statement and the sneakers went like sweet sandwiches over the bench and that has never stopped since.
