    Nike Air Jordan

    Sporty, eye-catching, timeless - that probably describes the Nike Air Jordan best. A model that is still one of the most popular on the sneaker market and whose eventful career is of course linked to a famous name: Michael Jordan.

    In 1984, shortly after Michael Jeffrey Jordan finished his college basketball career, he was drafted into the NBA by the then rather moderately strong Chicago Bulls. At the same time, various outfitters were courting the young talent and Nike won the bid after negotiation talks, whereupon Jordan's first Nike Air Jordan signature shoe - the Nike Air Jordan 1 - was designed together with the future Rookie of the Year.

    By the time the Nike Air Jordan 1 was released in 1985 in Chicago Bulls colors, "His Airness" had already established himself as a force on the team, but minor scandals were not left out. The Nike Air Jordan 1 broke the rule of the uniformity of the appearance of the respective NBA teams, so that Michael Jordan and Nike were ordered to 5000 dollars per game each, should he enter the NBA court again in the so-called *Bred* colorway of the Air Jordan 1. Needless to say, he did so repeatedly. It was this attitude, coupled with the unique skills of this exceptional player, that drove media and public interest to previously unimagined heights. The hype around Michael Jordan and the Air Jordan 1 played into Nike's hands, so that efforts were made to launch an entirely new model season after season from 1987 onwards.

    At the latest with the Air Jordan III, which was designed by Tinker Hatfield, basketball fans worldwide followed with which groundbreaking new design of the Air Jordan III Michael Jordan would lead his Bulls to ever new successes. 30 years later, the cult of the Air Jordan brand is bigger than ever. In addition to high-quality retro releases, the grand master now develops his own new models with his team members such as Carmelo Anthony, Blake Griffin or as recently with Russell Westbrook and thus reinvents himself again and again. So whether you are interested in a performance or a classic throwback style: Jordan Brand has the right shoe for you!

    Variants of the Nike Air Jordan - High, Mid or Low

    Most models from the Nike Air Jordan range come in High, Mid and Low versions. The designation depends on how high the shoe is in the ankle area. So as per your preference, either the High, Mid or Low variant can be chosen for your favorite colorway. As shown in the picture, the Air Jordans in the low version are particularly suitable in combination with shorts and are therefore a popular model in the summer.

    All Nike Air Jordan models at a glance

    The cult of the Nike Air Jordan is based on the career of NBA player Michael Jordan, who first played in the Nike Air Jordan 1 in the so-called Bred colorway. In later generations, the Air Jordan is therefore recognized by the characteristic Jumpman logo, the silhouette of the NBA icon in the jump. Since 1987, Nike has released a new Air Jordan model every season, creating a cult following in the sneaker world.

    The First - Nike Air Jordan 1

    Since 1984, the Nike Air Jordan 1 with the typical Nike Swoosh has been one of the absolute sneaker classics. Its durable leather and rubber outsole make this shoe an absolute all-rounder. Flex grooves provide natural freedom of movement on the court and the innovative Nike Air cushioning system lets you almost take off! Asphaltgold offers a wide range of colorways for the Air Jordan 1, including the Summit White/ Celestine Blue/ White.

    The Jumpman Pioneer - Nike Air Jordan 3

    First designed by Tinker Hatfield, the Nike Air Jordan 3 was released in 1988 as the first mid-top model of the Jordan era. The signature Jumpman made its first appearance on the back of the sneaker and the visible Air Sole provided unique cushioning for the shoes.

    The Lightweight - Nike Air Jordan 4

    Originally released in 1989 and much lighter than its predecessor, the Nike Air Jordan 4. With its mesh on the tongue and side panels of the shoe, the 4th generation model is very breathable and the lacing system improves stability on the court. The Visible Air Sole was also installed here and maximum support was achieved through more air in the front area.

    On Fire - Nike Air Jordan 5

    The Nike Air Jordan 5 also features mesh elements on the tongue and side panels. Originally released in 1990, it was equipped with a Lace Lock System for better hold of the laces and a transparent rubber sole with Air cushioning. If you want to stand out, you can't do without the Air Jordan 5, because it draws all the attention to itself and its wearer with the reflective 3M Tounge and the flames on the sides.

    The tough one - Nike Air Jordan 6

    With its firm rubber sole and reinforcement around the toes, the Nike Air Jordan 6 is very durable. Since its official release in 1991, the Air Jordan 6 has been relaunched in various colorways and collbas, including a low-top version for women.

    Nike Air Jordan 7

    • Has the Nike Air Logo on the inside only
    • Huarache technology for a better fit

    The Unique - Nike Air Jordan 11

    Each model in the Nike Air Jordan 11 series has its own unique style. It is the first Air Jordan from a collab to use the Nike patent of leather and carbon fiber. So if you don't want to swim in the mainstream anymore, you can't go wrong with the Air Jordan 11!

    The cushioning in the sole of the Nike Air Jordan

    The Nike Air Jordan models also used the innovative Nike Air technology in the outsole. Here, gas is trapped in a polyurethane capsule and provides maximum cushioning and unmistakable comfort in the sole. You can count on the Air models for optimal cushioning with every step, both in everyday life and as an athlete on the court.

    Nike Air Jordan in many colorways

    For most models of the Nike Air Jordan there was originally a release of four colorways. In the meantime there are many more colors to choose from for the sneakerheads of this world. Particularly popular are the typical blue or red Jordan sneakers, as pictured above. Even NBA icon Michael Jordan played his first games in the so-called Bred colorway. Often, however, simply the characteristic Swoosh on the side of the sneaker sets a color accent.

    Nike Air Jordan in different upper materials

    As diverse as the models of the Nike Air Jordan are, as variable are the selectable upper materials. From leather and mesh to suede and nylon, everything is possible with the Air Jordans. Depending on the generation, the colorway is also related to the upper material and makes the individual Nike sneaker a unique It-Peace in your sneaker collection!

    Nike Air Jordan for men and women

    At Asphaltgold, the Nike Air Jordan models are available for both men and women. The women's models are available in sizes 35-44 and the men's models are available in sizes 37-49.

    Nike Air Jordan Collaborations - Eminem or Supreme?

    The fact that the Air Jordan is one of the most popular shoes and an icon is not only shown by its history. The list of names of collaboration partners, who were allowed to give the Air Jordan their own touch, is also impressive. Of course, the basic design of the Air Jordan has always been used as a guideline. Musicians like Eminem or Macklemore, but also artists like Dave White have already worked on the Air Jordan. Other brands such as Supreme or Solecollector have also been on the list of Air Jordan collaboration partners and are thus part of the history of one of the most popular sneakers of all time.
