The Jordan legacy is a long one. Often credited with kicking off the whole fashion sneaker movement; Air Jordans first hit the shelves in the mid-80s. Named after NBA champion Michael Jordan; their combination of on-court prowess and casual swagger gave rise to over thirty different models over the ensuing decades; several of which became style icons in their own right.
Exploring the Jordan Collection
These days the Nike Jordan brand isn't just about trainers. There are also T-shirts and long-sleeve tops; leggings and shorts; sweats and tracksuits; bags and rucksacks; hats and caps. The central attraction; though; remains their selection of sneakers. Pick from low tops; high tops or mid tops; rugged utility models or luxurious party-going styles. Browse for the latest eye-catching colour combos; or hunt out authentic retro releases celebrating the brand's greatest hits.
A history of innovation
As well as the great MJ himself; the Jordan brand has teamed up memorably with the likes of film director Spike Lee and the cartoon character Bugs Bunny. Although each new version has its fans; several (like the AJ3 and AJ11) have become particularly rooted in popular culture. Over the years; different models have pioneered ground-breaking technology such as air units; moulded heels; sculpted midsoles; torsion plates and articulated propulsion technology. And the materials used have been equally out of the box; from patent leather to ballistic mesh; from carbon fibre to titanium.
On and Off Court Appeal
Inspired by fighter jets and sports cars; new editions of Jordan trainers have kept their sporting credentials alive and well by making continual improvements in lightness; traction; support. That said; the attraction of J's goes well beyond basketball fans and fitness enthusiasts. Yes; you can wear them with a T-shirt and joggers; but you're just as likely to see them teamed with a smartly fitted evening ensemble.
