The majority of you can agree that some, if not all of your favorite basketball sneakers come from these three lines.

There are no words that could truly describe the basketball player that Michael Jordan is. Mentioning statistics, awards, or his six championships all fail when attempting to show MJ?s greatness. He single-handedly changed the game of basketball; Larry Bird say that he was just, ?God disguised as Michael Jordan.? Maybe, to measure his greatness you must realize that every great player in NBA will have to be compared to Michael even though few will come close. Or maybe, we should just realize that modern day basketball would simply not be the same without number 23.

Nike, the modern day basketball giant, was having trouble breaking into the basketball market. Then someone answered their prayers as they signed Michael Jordan to what was about to become the greatest signature shoe line of all time. At the time of the Air Jordan I debut, most of the shoes in the NBA were predominantly white. The bold black and reds of the I caused the NBA to fine Jordan for wearing them each game. This controversy started the greatest signature line the world of basketball will ever know. From the Jordan I released in 1985 to the Air Jordan 2009, they are always the shoes with the highest demand. Regardless if Jordan is winning championships or enjoying his induction to the Hall of Fame, his signature line will live on.
