Full Answer

Air Jordans are the product of a licensing agreement between Nike and former NBA star Michael Jordan. Nike approached Jordan around the time he was drafted by the Bulls and offered a five-year partnership. Jordan debuted the new shoes his rookie year, 1984, wearing a red and black pair that didn't meet NBA guidelines for shoes at the time. As a part of a marketing stunt, Nike paid the $5,000 fines Jordan incurred for each game that he wore the unregulated shoes.
