A History of Jordan Signature Athletes

Earlier today, our own Nick DePaula broke the news that Chinese basketball star Guo Ailun will be receiving a signature shoe from Jordan Brand. Not only will Guo be the first International endorser with JB to have his name on a sneaker, he will join an elite fraternity of athletes to score their own Jumpman sig.

Just who is in that group? Peep the timeline below.

Michael Jordan

Year: 1984
Models: Air Jordan 1 – XXX1

The man that made signature sneakers fly literally and figuratively inked with Nike in ’84 and made his line his own brand in ’97. Over the course of the last three decades, Michael Jordan has remained relevant and revered on and off the court with his signature sneaker line keeping his name a buzz and shoes in stores.

Eddie Jones

Year: 1998
Models: Jumpman Pro Quick, Jumpman Swift 6, Jumpman Quick 6

When Brand Jordan first introduced their roster for the ’97-’98 season the majority of endorsees were made in Michael’s image. A group of sharp, professional and athletic shooting guards were to carry on the Jumpman legacy with Eddie Jones’ smooth game and major market appeal made him the face of three signature shoes while his compadres mostly carried the team line.

Vin Baker

Year: 1998
Models: Jumpman Pro Strong, Jumpman Vindicate

Resident big man on Jordan Brand, Vin Baker would carry the brand in the paint for the early years. While young faces like Kevin Garnett, Darius Miles and Blake Griffin would all lace Jordans in team and PE variety over the course of their careers, Vin would be the only true 4 to see his name stamp a Jumpman shoe in signature fashion.

Randy Moss

Year: 1999
Models: Jordan Super Freak, Jordan Mossified

Like Odell Beckham Jr.? Well, you’ll love Randy Moss if he’s before your time. If he is of your time, ten you remember Randy being flat out the most exciting player in the NFL. A hero on the hardwood during his high school days with Jason Williams, Moss’s acrobatic catches made him exactly that for the JB roster. In Minnesota, Moss would land Eastbay covers, lace up PEs, Trainers and his own signatures before eventually signing a deal with PONY.

Derek Jeter

Year: 2002
Models: Jumpman Turn 2, Jumpman DJ, Jumpman Jet, Jumpman Jeter Six4Three, Jumpman Jeter Official, Jumpman Jeter Vital, Jumpman Jeter Clutch, Jumpman Jeter Captain, Jordan Jeter Throwback, Jordan Jeter Cut, Jordan Jeter Legend, Jordan Jeter Lux, Jordan Jeter Lux 2.0

Following a foray with FILA upon entering the MLB, Jordan Brand scooped up Derek Jeter in 2002 for a winning run that would make the Captain JB’s longest tenured signature athlete not named Mike. Love the Yankee dandy? Check out his cleat history here.

Carmelo Anthony

Year: 2004
Models: Jordan Melo 1.5, Jordan Melo 5.5, Jordan Melo M3-M14

Y2K signings like Darius Miles and Quentin Richardson saw Jordan Brand adapting to the times and making their roster younger, fresher and more relevant. While the head-knocking Clippers couldn’t go wrong in the PE department, it was ultimately Syracuse standout Carmelo Anthony that would be the young face of JB. Early signatures merged tech with retro roots while later pairs packed Foamposite construction and streetball steeze.

Chris Paul

Year: 2008
Models: Jordan CP3-CP3.X

Mike Bibby was the first point guard to rock Air Jordan PEs in official fashion — aside from Penny — but Chris Paul was the player that would define the position for the game and the brand. After an early intro to the League with Nike, CP3 jumped to the Jumpman to start a signature series that’s spanned over ten models.

Dwyane Wade

Year: 2011
Models: Jordan Fly Wade 1 & 2

Chicago roots, poetic athleticism and a clean cut look made Dwyane Wade an easy endorser for Jordan Brand. Early on, Wade would carry the signature franchise with models like the Air Jordan 2010 and 2011. Eventually, he would score his own shoe and logos with the Fly Wade 1 and 2 before bolting to Li Ning for a stake in their brand.

Russell Westbrook

Year: 2015
Models: Jordan Westbrook 0 & Jordan Westbrook 0.2

High fashion like Future Hendrix, Russell Westbrook broke the mold for JB by being the first athlete of there own — and hooper period — to receive a signature shoe of their namesake built specifically for lifestyle wear. Like Dwyane Wade before him, Russ would be the official face of the Air Jordan franchise on the hardwood, but off of it he would sell his own casual capable kicks inspired by his sense of style.

Guo Ailun

Year: 2017-18
Models: ???

Next in line? While Jordan Brand rewrote their formula with Russell Westbrook’s off court signature shoe, they’ll be entering new territory with Guo in China. Though most expect the swaggy guard to go to the NBA in the near future, it will be exciting to see a signature shoe debut overseas.

Chinese Star Guo Ailun to Become First International Jordan Signature Athlete

Having your own signature shoe? Amazing. Having a Jumpman on it? Very rare. Such will be the situation for Guo Ailun, the Chinese basketball sensation who will become the first international signature athlete for Jordan Brand as told to our own Nick DePaula in a new piece for ESPN.

The Chinese Basketball Association All-Star has been getting it done for his hometown Liaoning Flying Leopards, impressing the likes of Chris Paul, Brandon Jennings and Russell Westbrook with his tremendous work ethic and fierce competitiveness. Inking a Million a year deal with the Jumpman plus incentives, he’ll be the first JB endorsed athlete in the CBA an likely an eventual star in the NBA.

“When I first played basketball, I’d see Jordan shoes on TV or on other players and loved them,” says the slender guard who was first introduced to Jordans through the cartoon Slam Dunk in which JB collaborated on an AJ6 with. “At the time, we couldn’t afford them, so I was always envious of other players that had the shoes. That makes this such a dream come true now.”

Equipped with a swaggy haircut, smooth game and tenacious drive, his prowess on and off the court could make him an ill endorser as JB continues to grow globally and bring attention to performance.

Keep it locked to Nice Kicks for more details on this breakthrough signature.

How To Stand Out In Jordans After So Many Retros Featuring The Air Jordan 13 ‘BRED’

words & photos // Ray P.:

Air Jordans have long transcended the basketball court into street attire for over two decades now. What was more appealing to me than the sneakers themselves was the way Michael Jordan wore kicks to hoop. I was always a style first type of guy and sneakers second. Little nuances like the black calf sleeve slightly folded over so you can see the red or even when he wore the white socks with the number 23 on them, so fly! Things like that made me really love Jordan because I felt like that one detail set off the entire uniform.

Fast forward nearly twenty years since 1998, I still want to dress like Mike.

When I think of Air Jordans, it’s not a new and fresh feeling anymore. They feel vintage… well because they are! AJ1’s are 32 years old to put things into perspective. So after seeing the same retros over and over, what gets me excited to wear Jordans again is finding new ways to style the shoes while paying homage to Michael’s legacy. Everyone has the latest J’s, but how you wear them is going to set you apart from the rest.

Throwing on a black pair of jeans and a red shirt to pair with the upcoming remastered ‘Bred’ Air Jordan 13 is boring in my opinion, we’ve been doing it for too long. To me, the best way to wear Jordans is how MJ wore them while adding some new school swag to your look (leave the NT denim in storage).

Bulls shorts are essential, a pair should be in everyone’s closet, and white Nike socks with black Swooshes are equally as iconic. The piece that got me excited to wear the ‘Bred’ Air Jordan 13 is my breakaway pant inspired jacket. Essentially it’s a modern day flip on a really popular 90’s trend. I remember wanting every pair of NBA breakaway pants. Unfortunately, I had none because Moms wasn’t trying to spend over on any piece of clothing on me, ha!

At one point having the newest Jordans was exclusivity, but now that MJ has given almost everyone in the world to opportunity to cop a pair of his classic sneakers after so many retros, that feeling has faded away.

What’s going to keep that fire burning? How can you still be like Mike, but not like everyone else? It’s called style.

Whether it’s socks, your shirt, some buttons on your cap or whatever, paying attention to the little nuances Michael Jordan used to differentiate himself from the average Basketball player on court can be applied to your personal style.

Browse below for a look at our exclusive style editorial of the‘Bred’ Air Jordan 13. Nike SNKRS is set to launch the retros on August 19th, 2017 for 0.

Nike Presents the Customizable Gakou Flyknit

Image via: Nike

Image via: Nike

Over the years, various Flyknit prototypes have emerged from the work of Nike’s Special Projects design team. One of those prototypes seemed to stick — a sock-like shoe with suede on the heel and a Nike Free-inspired sole. It blended elements of the Nike Aqua Sock and Sock Racer but firmly stood on its own, eventually earning its own name: the Nike Gakou Flyknit. Something the designers couldn’t agree on, however, was the placement of the Swoosh, so they passed that decision on to the consumer, who can use the included rubber stencils to personalize the shoe.

White and black colorways of the Nike Gakou Flyknit will be available starting August 24 on Nike+, nike.com and at select retailers.

Release Date: 8/24/17 (Thursday)

Jordan Brand Supports Black Lives Matter Movement with Air Jordan 1

Earlier today Jordan Brand’s Frank Cooker debuted a new Air Jordan 1 both powerful in its message and harmonious in its timing.

His Air Jordan 1 “Black Lives Matter” could very well be a custom or sample never meant to see the light of day at retail. Yet whatever they are, the black-on-black colorway sends a powerful message of unity and inclusion in a time that we need it most.

This, however, isn’t the first time Jordan Brand has created with inspiration by African-American culture. Their annual Black History Month collection is an ode to equal rights and equality. Given a potential release of this BLM Air Jordan 1, Jordan Brand would easily be the most woke sportswear company in the biz.

No release details for this Air Jordan 1 are known. Stay tuned as we hope to have more information soon.
