The Air Jordan 1 simply changed sport forever. Released in 1985, it is the only Air Jordan to feature the Nike swoosh, and it was banned by the NBA for violating the league’s uniform rules. This ban only fueled Air Jordan 1 sales and was even the topic of a popular Nike commercial. The Air Jordan 1 has been re-released many times and still remains an extremely popular sneaker due to its timeless design and legendary status.
Soon after the huge success of the Air Jordan 3, Tinker Hatfield did all the things that he could to make the Air Jordan 4 even better in 1989. He essentially planned on concentrating more on the performance side of the sneakers’ design rather than utilizing the same ones used on the AJ1, AJ2 and AJ3. Air Jordan IV was yet another work of a genius from the Jordan lineup using the straps on the side for increased ankle support and an over-molded mesh as additional features. Also, one of probably the most fascinating attributes of the Jordan 4 is its capacity to be laced in 18 various styles.
Similar to the Air Jordan Spiz’ike, the Air Jordan Sixty Plus (60+) is a mash up of classic Air Jordan models. In this case, each Air Jordan sneaker incorporated in the design was worn while Michael Jordan scored 60+ points. From the Air Jordan V midsole to the Air Jordan II “wings” logo, the Jordan Brand has seamlessly bridged these classic designs together.
The Jordan Retro 7 brings on the heat with a remake of the original Air Jordan VII style. The classic colors pop off the leather and nubuck upper, while Air-Sole units keep it cushioned in the heel and forefoot. A polyurethane midsole is wrapped with Phylon for extra support and comfort, and the solid rubber sole completes the design with superior traction and performance.
The Jordan AJF 4 is a unique combination of the popular and highly sought-after Air Jordan Retro 4 "Laser" and the sole of the famous Air Force 1. It features a leather and synthetic upper with laser-printed details throughout, which sits on top of a Phylon midsole for cushioning and an Air Force 1 rubber sole.
The awesome never stops for the Jordan brand, and the Jordan Prime 5 is no exception. This premier style features design elements from the Air Jordan I and the Air Jordan V, molded together into one fresh sneaker. The reflective synthetic upper takes cues from the Air Jordan I, with the addition of mesh accents and other details from the Air Jordan V. The Phylon midsole with Zoom Air cushioning keeps it comfortable on top of the rubber sole, which features a forefoot pivot point like the AJ I.
The Jordan Pro Classic is another Jordan model that keeps it nice and simple. Offered in all white, black, blue/white, and black/white, these slick kicks go with anything.
In order to appreciate the Jordan Retro 6, you have to start at the beginning. It all started in 1991, when the original Air Jordan VI was released, it was the first Jordan with an internal bootie and it boasted a striking design, Porsche-inspired pull tab and Vis-Air unit. It was also the shoe MJ wore as he captured both the league and Finals MVP. The Jordan Retro 6 is a retroed version of that classic shoe, offering a fresh look with the same iconic details. This shoe comes specially packaged in a "box within a box" to keep the original box from being damaged and helps to keep it in "collector's condition."
9. Air Jordan Cement 3
Rated by some as the greatest sneakers of all time, the Air Jordan Cement 3 takes a front seat for serious Jordan collectors. With buzz surrounding Michael Jordan and his signature kicks, Nike looked to corporate architect-turned-footwear-designer Tinker Hatfield to head up the creation of the Air Jordan III. Possibly the most distinct aspect of the Air Jordan III was the upgrade in materials. The upper was constructed of rich full-grain tumbled leather and was built to feel broken in — so Jordan could wear a brand new pair every game without worrying about stiffness in the shoes. Hatfield also chose to combine the tumbled leather with faux elephant skin. The AJ III is one of the most popular, in-demand Air Jordans in the series and continues to sell out every re-release.
At first glance the Air Jordan Alpha 1 looks identical to the classic Air Jordan 1, but it’s not. Once you examine the sneaker you will notice a thicker midsole, minimal stitching on the outsole, and a different pattern on the outsole. This evolution of the Air Jordan 1 also has technological improvements, which is why Jordan Brand team members (like Dwayne Wade) have also sported them on the court.
