Air Jordans, popularly known as Jordans, were originally designed for and endorsed by former NBA player Michael Jordan for Nike. The shoes are designed to be used while playing basketball but have become a must-have for any connoisseur of urban fashion. However, purchasing a pair of the iconic shoes would cost hundreds of dollars, which may be beyond the means of an aspiring fashionista.
Luckily, there are some merchants who sell discounted pairs of Jordans, both online and offline. Following is a list of websites for those sneakerheads on a budget:
1) Online Stores: a) Retro Jordan Shoes b) Jordan Shoe Space
I would recommend perusing these two websites first as they are well organized and offer very good prices on a large selection of Jordans. Another online option is eBay but, as with all online merchants, it is difficult to be sure that authentic pairs of Jordans are being sold.
2) Brick and Mortar Stores: a) Finish Line b) Foot Action c) Champs Sports d) Nike Outlet Stores
For those who prefer physically seeing the shoes before buying them and want to be certain that they are buying authentic shoes, these shoe stores also sell discount Jordans and have many locations throughout the United States. Additionally, many cities have local shoe stores that sell Jordans at discount prices, but they can be hard to find for those who aren’t knowledgeable about sneakers.
Air Jordans are a very popular brand of sneakers that can be very expensive. While there are many stores, both online and offline, that offer Jordans at a discount, some attempt to take advantage of deal seekers by selling counterfeit goods. The best way to avoid being deceived is by becoming informed about Jordans so that fake models become readily apparent when sighted.
