The Nike Air Jordan is universally recognisable and has solidified its place in history just like Michael Jordan himself. Here’s a couple of facts about the iconic shoe:
When the Nike Air Jordan 1 was first released, Jordan was fined $5,000 every time he wore them on the court as they went against the NBA’s uniform policy.
The Jumpman logo that first appeared on the Nike Air Jordan 3 was actually a ballet move that Jordan was asked to perform during a staged photo shoot. If you look carefully, he’s using his left hand, not his right.
