No doubt about it Michael Jordan is arguable the best basketball player of all time, and has the best and most influential shoes in the game of basket ball. He started his shoe brand with a partnership with an almost unheard of shoe brand, but He almost didn’t sign with the now powerhouse conglomerate known as Nike.
MJ really wanted to sign with adidas as they were his favorite shoes at the time but the compony made the biggest mistake of there life by rejecting him from an offer. But then Nike came along and offered him a great deal. However, he almost turned the offer down but his mom stepped in and made him take the offer. So, we can all thank Deloris Jordan for some of the best shoes ever.
“My mother said, ‘You’re going to go listen, you may not like it, but you’re going to go listen,” that is the quote he gave when he remembers why he signed with Nike. I am going to give my top 3 favorite models of the Air Jordan’s as there are 26 models of them.
