Air Jordan x Nike History

Air Jordan 1’s are one of the most remarkable sneakers in history. Air Jordans wouldn’t exist if Michael Jordan didn’t refuse to sign the deal with Nike. Nike went the extra mile and approached Michael Jordan’s parents who then dragged Michael Jordon to Nike’s campus in Beaverton, Oregon.

Nike was ready with a presentation and they planned a whole brand around Jordan, but Jordan was not convinced because he thought the soles are too thick and that he can’t feel the court.  It was a minor adjustment for Nike to make and then the Air Jordan 1 was born.

The legendary Peter C. Moore was given the task to design the first Air Jordan 1 and the rookie also gave some directions to Peter Moore that the shoe needs to be “different” and “Exciting”.

The first Air Jordan 1 was featured in red and black and were also known as the “Banned” colorway. They were called banned because they broke the NBA league uniform rules. The ban led to a $5000 fine per game.

The Nike Air Jordan 1 High Mushroom was released in 2019 with neutral, earthly tones with some classic touch from the 1985 model. This sneaker was a two-pack deal that also included the Air Jordan’s 4 with the same colorway. Reviving the 80’s.

The AJ 1 Mushroom is a soft and smoother take on the Jumpman’s iconic sneaker. The upper is constructed with beige leather panels with contrasting black accents on the toe box, heels, tongue, and the swoosh.

Below we find the iconic Air midsole perfectly fitted for comfort and an ice blue rubber outsole that completes the look giving it a very summerish touch.
