Q:

Where are Jordan shoes manufactured?

A:

The high-fashion, high-demand Jordan shoes are created in China. There are currently two plants located within the Asian country that are legally able to manufacture Jordan sneakers.

These shoes entered the sports world in 1984 with controversy, as Michael Jordan sported them during basketball games despite receiving a $5,000 fine each game. The Jordan Brand company, created by Nike, is one of the industry's most profitable companies. In 2013, Jordan Brand shoes earned a staggering 2.7 billion dollars. In the same year, Michael Jordan, by partnering with Nike, earned an estimated $90 million. Nike has a near-monopoly on basketball shoes, with 92% of the market share.
