Made by Nike exclusively for the iconic Chicago Bulls shooting guard, the pair represents the first ever signature sneaker, paving the way for other star players like Scottie Pippen, Penny Hardaway, Charles Barkley, Kobe Bryant, and LeBron James to have their own signature shoes. The Vintage Originals from 1985 are in the Chicago Bulls white, black and red - the Air Jordan 1 colorway that Michael Jordan wore the most often on the court. In 1984, Nike gave Jordan a signature line of shoes and clothes a crucial, unprecedented move to entice Michael Jordan to sign with Nike.
Produced between February to April 1985, Jordan wore the present pair of Air Jordan 1s during an early, pivotal point of his career and thus catapulted the sneakers popularity. MJ wore Air Jordan 1s until October 29, 1985, when he broke his foot and subsequently took off 64 games during his second season while healing. He wore modified versions of the Air Jordan 1 upon his return to the game.
Designed by Peter Moore, the name Air Jordan was coined by Michael Jordans agent David Falk, since the Nike shoes had air in the soles, and Michael Jordan played basketball in the air. Broadening the color spectrum of basketball shoes, Nike released at least 20 different colorways of the Original Air Jordans unheard of at the time, with most basketball shoes plain and simple, offered in white and black, white and grey, white and navy, and occasionally white and red. In 1984, Michael Jordans black and red shoes (Air Ships) became controversial after the NBA sent a letter to Nike in February of 1985 informing the company that Jordans colorful shoes were a violation of the leagues uniformity of uniform clause, and forbid Jordan from wearing them.Nike responded by creating an ad campaign around Jordans banned shoes, remarking that while the NBA threw them out of the game, fortunately, the NBA cant stop you from wearing them. The Air Jordan 1s were created in the wake of the famous banned Nike ad campaign, and established MJ as the league's leader in shoe style. The unparalleled sneaker became so popular and successful that Nike continued to make new signature Air Jordans each season. From the inception, Air Jordans have always been the pinnacle of sneakers, unmatched in their quality, craftsmanship, innovation, performance, and style.
