The Magic of Jordan Basketball Trainers
Check out most sneaker collections, and there'll be at least a few Jordan basketball trainers in pride of place. When they first started appearing back in the mid-80s, these iconic kicks set new standards for comfort and luxury, served up in clean-cut but instantly recognisable silhouettes. It was the perfect marriage of Tinker Hatfield's timeless designs, Nike's premium production values and sports superstar Michael Jordan's charisma and sporting prowess. Over three decades and thirty-plus models on, Jordan basketball shoes are as beloved by sneaker fans as ever.
What's trending in the world of Jordan basketball trainers?
The brand is currently putting out a whole array of crowd-pleasing retros and OG versions of classic Jordan basketball shoes, with updates of much sought after original colourways. Another trend is towards utility styles in lightweight flyknit such as the Jordan Latitude. Meanwhile, the Jordan Brand continues to issue commemorative editions like the white and gold Air Jordan 12 in honour of 2019's Chinese basketball tournament.
A star on and off court
The history of Jordan basketball trainers is interwoven with the career of the man who gave them his name. The Air Jordan 4, for instance, is forever associated with a game between the Chicago Bulls and the Cleveland Cavaliers that's talked about to this day. Recent designs like the Air Jordan 34 are stripped back and tooled for performance, proving that on-court action isn't a thing of the past for this particular brand. At the same time, though, Jordan basketball shoes have had a huge impact on fashion and popular culture.
The Jordan 1 in low, mid and high top versions is one of the top sellers in this category, proving that the best things never go out of style. The same can be said of other early designs like the Jordan 3. Recent releases in flyknit such as the Jordan Super Fly, Jordan Future and Jordan Elevation are also springing off our shelves in true Jumpman style.
