air-jordan-1-latest-releases

The Air Jordan 1 sneaker was released in 1985, the year when Michael Jordan was ending his first NBA season with Chicago Bulls, the team that drafted him a year before. The sneaker was designed by Peter Moore and it was inspired from previous basketball shoes at the time, with clean lines and a new designed logo next to the classic swoosh. The price tag was only $65, one that was meant to start its legacy and introduce it to the market. The time when Air Jordan 1 has really came into the spotlight was when Michael was fined $5000 by NBA for violating its uniform code when wearing the black and red version. Nike picked up the tab and the rest is history. The Air Jordan 1 was the start of the legendary Jordan shoe line that was retroed for the first time only nine years later, with numerous new colorways released over time.
