jordan Air Jordan 5 Retro Low
material: leather/synthetic

Michael Jordan and the New York Knicks. Unforgetable and hard-fought battles on-court as well as off-court. Let's say it like this: They didn't like each other. At all. But who could blame the Knickerbockers in doing so? He was the reason the staff, players and fans were caught in broken dreams over and over again. Nevertheless everyone knew how good Michael was – there was no denying that. In the moment that was realized, respect was born – and there is no denying that aswell. Mutual respect in fact. It's not like the majority of victories were just handed to the Bulls, they had to earn them. That said, MJ is paying homage to the Knicks in the form of the AIR JORDAN RETRO LOW „KNICKS“. A Jordan in Knicks colors? The same Knicks around seemingly always beserking superstar Patrick Ewing? Exactly. Apart from its name a brash Knickerbocker blue can't be mistaken. Furthermore the inner lining, a part of the outsole as well as the Jumpman on tongue and heel area are obviously held in orange. Sometimes life turns out in the most unexpected ways. If you were to jump into a time machine and tell somebody about this in the 90s...well, you get it.

When the AIR JORDAN 5 – Jordan's fifth signature shoe – released in 1990, a young Mike himself had to acknowledge defeat for the third time already. Not even 47 points in the Eastern Conference Finals' third game were enough to surpass the „Bad Boys“ from Detroit. Back then the blame couldn't be put on the shoes. Something Mars Blackmon probably would have done. Isiah Thomas, Dennis Rodman and company were just too much to handle.

Inspired by the „Mustang“ combat aircraft, innovative stylish features teamed up with performance ability. Designed by legendary Nike-designer Tinker Hatfield, a lot of hints deliberately featured, especially on the midsole's „teeth“. Mesh windows on the shoe's side provide for an amazing breathability while the AJ V's tongue is reflective. Furthermore the lucent rubber outsole had its first appearance on a Jordan shoe. Also debuting, the lace lock-system awarded the Jordan signature its unique and recognizable look. Apart from the outward appearance, the lock-system also fulfilled functional purposes. Through lace fixation a stable footing is ensured.

Michael Jordan 1990: 47 points vs Pistons (Game 3)

Spike Lee as Mars Blackmon Nike Air Jordan 5 Commercial

Brand information: jordan

In the game of basketball Michael Jordan is a god. Number 23 of the Chicago Bulls has set the bar extremely high: His six championship rings, five mvp`s, numerous scoring titles, not to mention his on-court heroics and breathtaking dunks, are the stuff legends are made of. The Jordan Brand aspires to achieve boss status as well. And it is well on its way.
In Jordan`s rookie campaign, it didn`t take the basketball world long to realize who they were dealing with. He was not only a fascinating athlete, his charismatic smile and pleasant personality cast a spell over people – Michael Jordan had perfect commercial appeal. Nike recognized that as well. The brand needed a kick-starter and got a rocket boost in Jordan.
While the Air Jordan 1 and 2 sold well – and vaulted Nike from middle of the pack to the top of the sneaker world – the Air Jordan 3 went supersonic. Thanks to new head designer Tinker Hatfield the sneaker has become a legend in its own right. The jumpman logo was introduced with the 3, as well as a visible air cushion in its sole. Experts call the 3 the best basketball sneaker ever made, even to this day. A whole line of legendary commercials starring famous director Spike Lee as Mars Blackmon („It`s gotta be the shoes“) made the hype complete.

Air Jordan – from hype to frenzy

In the 90s the hype evolved into a frenzy: Michael Jordan shattered records, was feared by opponents on the court and charmed fans off of it. MJ became more famous than the Beatles and the president combined and people went crazy over his signature sneakers. To this day, the madness continues: When a new Jordan is released – no matter if re-release, retro or special edition – fans of the Jordan Brand camp out in front of sneaker stores for days. The shoes are sold out in seconds and are later sold online for crazy rates.
The Jordan Brand has become so large that Nike decided to make it its own sub-division. In 1997 the time had come: The Air Jordan 18 was the first independent release of the Jordan Brand, the rest is history …
