Description

The Nike “Air Jordan” is one of the most iconic designs in the history of both streetwear and basketball, and is a key part of the origin of the Air Jordan brand for Nike. Designed by Peter Moore, Michael Jordan wore Air Jordan 1s in 1984 and 1985, as well as modified versions in 1986.

The term “Air Jordan” was coined by Michael Jordan’s agent David Falk. David apparently came up with the name because Nike shoes had air in the soles and because, of course, Michael Jordan played basketball in the air.

From the day it launched, Air Jordans have always represented the pinnacle of sneaker design. The shoes are unmatched when it comes to quality, craftsmanship, materials, innovation, performance, and of course style. This UNC 'Carolina Blue' edition was released in 1985. The shoe pays homage to Michael Jordan's alma mater with the Carolina Blue accents. A white upper and toe box is accented with Carolina Blue leather details. Nike air branding on the tongue, embossed wings logo on the upper ankle, and a Carolina Blue Nike swoosh, complete the look.
