The AJ 1 is the shoe that started it all. Arriving in 1985, this shoe and its rule-breaking black-red colorway was banned by the league. A legend was born. Today, AJ 1s are some of the most iconic shoes, with the famous colorways like the Banned, Chicago, Black Toe, Top 3, Shattered Backboard, and Royal 1s all being fan favorites.
The AJ 2 played off of its predecessor’s design, but was heavily influenced by luxury. Built to resemble a high-fashion dress shoe, the AJ 2 was the perfect blend of style and performance.
The AJ 3 is one of Jordan’s most recognizable silhouettes, with the famous elephant print wrapping the heel and toe of the shoe. It was also Jordan’s first mid-cut sneaker, and was originally built to be both an on- and off-court shoe in 1987-88.
The AJ 4 followed in the AJ 3’s footsteps by seamlessly combining on-court performance with off-court style. Straps that framed the eyelets worked to provide additional support on the court, while also resembling wings for a trendy off-court look.
Taking inspiration from a World War II fighter plane, the AJ 5 became instantly recognizable thanks to the famous shark teeth design. It’s also the first Jordan to feature a translucent sole.
The AJ 6 debuted during the 1991 season, where MJ claimed his first championship. The shoe features grip holes in the tongue and a colored midsole that helped make the ‘Infrared’ colorway into a classic.
The AJ 7 helped push MJ’s line further into pop culture with the help of a famous rabbit. It was the first Jordan shoe with no Nike logos on the outside of the shoe, signaling a huge moment for the Jordan Brand. MJ also won his second championship and made history that summer overseas on what people consider to be the best basketball team of all time.
The AJ 8 introduced crossover straps, making it one of Jordan’s most unique shoes. It’s also a historically significant shoe, as MJ capped off a three-peat in the AJ 8 before announcing his retirement.
The AJ 9 took inspiration from MJ’s brief baseball career by incorporating design elements from the baseball cleats His Airness wore. Due to his retirement, MJ actually never wore the shoe during a regular-season game.
With MJ’s retirement, the AJ 10 paid tribute to Jordan by listing his various accomplishments on the sole of the shoe. Soon, MJ would return to the league and continue adding onto that already impressive list.
The AJ 11 is easily a fan favorite silhouette. It was built to be a versatile shoe that could be worn on the court or at a formal event, with its premium patent leather construction. MJ claimed another championship and starred in a famous movie that helped the AJ 11 reach a new level of pop culture acclaim.
The AJ 12 featured unique design lines and premium materials for a truly iconic look. MJ won his fifth championship and his Game 5 heroics made the ‘Flu Game’ colorway one of the most famous colorways in Jordan history.
MJ’s cat-quick reflexes and style of play inspired the shoe’s design, which includes a sole that takes after a panther’s paw print and the iconic glowing hologram by the ankle that looks like a cat’s eye. MJ finished off his second three-peat with the AJ 13 before retiring once again.
Michael Jordan’s love of sports cars took center stage with the AJ 14. The shoe’s design took inspiration from one of MJ’s favorite cars that he drove.
The AJ 15 is one of Jordan’s most unique designs, taking some inspiration from a fighter jet. It was also influenced by the premium, luxury looks that accompanied previous Air Jordan designs.
