1985 was a great year, not only because Michael Jordan was rookie of the year and played in the All-Star game, but also the Air Jordan I were released. The Air Jordan I was the first shoe to be worn in the NBA with multiple colors. After the release of the Air Jordan I, David Stern banned the most popular shoes of the decade to be worn by MJ. Every time Michael stepped on the court with a pair he would have to pay two thousand dollars.
There was 23 different color variations released, and this is not including the three colorways of the Air Jordan I KO. Each AJ I shoe came with two sets of laces which matched the color combo.In 1994 the Air Jordan 1 was re-released with dismal success. In 2001-2003 the Air Jordan Retro I once again was re-released, and in 2004 the Air Jordan 1 low made another appearance.
