The Air Jordan 1
The Air Jordan 1 shoes seem as up-to-date as in the moment of their great debut. It was more than 30 years ago, in 1985, when Michael Jordan entered a basketball court wearing these Nike sneakers.
The Jordan retro shoes were designed by Peter Moore, a designer working for Nike. In the composition, he used a big Nike Swoosh logo (visible at the back of the shoe) that joined the wing-like logo at the side part. Air Jordan 1`s looks was a bit similar to the previous designs by the brand, Nike Dunk High for example. The sneakers became famous due to the prohibition imposed by NBA on Michael Jordan who was prohibited from playing in his red and black shoes. Later on it was revealed that the ban was just a good marketing trick that made people recognize the sneakers even better!
The Jordan sneakers
The Jordan sneakers are equipped with a high, ankle-length upper. Such a construction ensures the proper stabilization of the ankle joint. The shoes are made of grain leather, nylon and synthetic leather. The inner part is furnished with several layers of a textile fabric. The thick rubber sole is equipped with a shock-absorbing padding Air-Sole, which is situated just under the heel and a shoe thread with the pivot point to change directions very fast. Except for that all, they are just great lifestyle shoes!
