The Jordan Legacy
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.
