No other athlete in the history of pro sports is an icon the way Michael Jordan is an icon, so it’s only fitting that no other signature shoe or brand is as iconic as Air Jordans. These kicks are the most popular shoe of all time. People spend thousands of dollars collecting them, and every time there is a release (or re-release) people camp out in front of malls all across the world to get a pair.
But as popular as these shoes are, how much do you really know about them? If you answered “not that much I guess,” then this list is for you. It’s part trivia, part history, and part attempt to get ridiculed for my ignorance by experts who know a hell of a lot more about Jordans than I do. Have a look. You’ll either learn something or laugh at my lack of encyclopedic knowledge of Jordans.
