Air Jordan is a brand of shoes and athletic clothing designed, owned, and produced by Michael Jordan. The shoe concept was made by Michael Jordan before the drawing. Nike then got Peter C. Moore and Bruce Kilgore to draw the Shoe. The shoes were first produced for Michael Jordan in 1984 and released for public consumption in 1985.
"When you sit down to design something, it can be anything, a car, a toaster, a house, a tall building or a shoe, what you draw or what you design is really a culmination of everything that you've seen and done in your life previous to that point."
