1984 was not the year the sneaker industry was born, but it sure was the biggest year in the game. That year, Basketball Rookie, Michael Jordan joined Nike’s fam, and signed one of the biggest sneaker deals EVER! That year, basketball sneakers were no longer player exclusive. And thanks to Jordan brand, wearing a clean pair of Air Jordan 1 to school became cool!
