Since his game-winning shot that brought the National Championship to North Carolina, Michael Jordan has been at the forefront of basketball consciousness. He took the court in 1985 wearing the original Air Jordan I, setting a new standard for performance and style, simultaneously breaking league rules and his opponents' will while capturing the imagination of fans worldwide. Ever evolving, ever at the pinnacle of imagination, the Air Jordan line is the ultimate in basketball footwear.
Nike AirMore than 30 years ago, a revolutionary idea raised the standards in sneaker comfort: Use the lightest cushioning material there is—air. Nike Air units work by trapping air molecules inside a durable urethane shell. With each footstrike, the air unit compresses to reduce the force of impact, then immediately recovers its shape to be ready for the next landing. Nike Air units are built to last, so the cushioning properties hold steady for the life of the shoe.
