Jordans 2017, Thirteen years. It's been that long since Michael Jeffrey Jordan last graced a NBA floor, and yet his name will be forever mentioned with reverence. The Wilmington, North Carolina, native's legacy in professional basketball is cemented; the same can be said about his Air Jordan line – singlehandedly the most influential signature sneaker line ever. The story begins in 1985, when Nike released the Air Jordan 1. Designed by Peter Moore, inspired by the Dunk silhouette, Jordan's inaugural shoe's reign on top was shorter than Leprechauns. Banned. That was the NBA's mandate, citing the black and red colorway as reprehensible by the league's standard of players outfitted in simple black or white shoes. Its Italian-made successor, the Air Jordan 2, saw better results. But it wasn't until 1988, when Nike designer Tinker Hatfield jumped on board to create the elephant-print clad Air Jordan 3, that the Air Jordan story really came together.
New Jordans 2016, The Air Jordan line originated back in 1984 when Michael Jordan himself wore them as a rookie. After signing MJ to a $2.5 million (plus royalties), the first product was produced. In 1985 Nike designed Jordan’s first shoe the Air Jordan 1. The Air Jordan line features a unique logo; our beloved Jumpman. The Jumpman logo was first introduced on the Air Jordan 3. The logo has now become iconic being used on both sneakers and apparel. The Air Jordan craze began when the NBA originally banned the first pair, due to the lack of white present on the shoe. Michael wore them anyway and the marketing campaign for Nike was set. The brand has yet to slow down it’s progressive ways, proving that they are still pushing the limits with their innovative, new technologies.
Cheap Jordans 2017, Things changed with the arrival of the '90s. Michael and the Bulls won three straight NBA titles; he retired in 1993 after the tragic death of his father to chase a career playing baseball; he returned to the game mid-season in 1995, winning another three consecutive championships between the 95-96 and 97-98 seasons. And while this was happening, Hatfield was there, creating the footwear Jordan wore each night – pushing the needle one innovative silhouette at a time. A cannon of sneakers that pushed the boundaries of design and branding, one that continues to embrace this generation's athletes under the Jordan Brand umbrella. Air Jordan is synonymous with innovation. From 1985 'til infinity.

The iconic pairing of navy and university blue visualizes the "Win Like '82" idea, which honors Jordan's NCAA title-winning shot in the 1982 Championship Game. In an effort to channel his success in college, Jordan superstitiously wore his UNC shorts underneath his Bulls shorts throughout his career. This forced him to wear longer shorts on the court, which inadvertently started a league-wide style trend.

Jordans 2017, This Air Jordan 3 has a similar color blocking of the 2013 release of the "Bright Crimson" Air Jordan 3. Instead of using elephant print on the overlays, Jordan Brand replaces it with snakeskin detailing. this unreleased sample replaces the elephant print wrap with snakeskin texture.

New Jordans 2016, Collector and reseller Oregonsole recently shared this look-see version, which features snakeskin print overlays on the heels in place of the model's most famous detail. These obviously never made it to mass production, but they may serve as a clue for future retro ideas. In recent years, the brand has applied snakeskin to releases like the Air Jordan 4 and Air Jordan 11 Low. That has surfaced which features what looks to be a black leather on the majority of the upper with grey snakeskin detailing on the heel in place of the elephant print. We have no view of the front portion of the shoe, but we think it's pretty safe to assume that the toe has also been hit with snakeskin. Bright Crimson accents are then seen on the inner liner and heel.
