Buyers Guide Questions

Are Nike Shoes and Jordans two Different Names for the same Brand?

The Air Jordan is a part of Nike, they were endorsed and created for Michael Jordan when he played for the Chicago Bulls basketball team in the NBA. They were designed by Nike and the Air Jordan I was released to the public in 1985. In 1997 theyallowed the Jordan Brand to come into its own, so in effect, Nike and Jordan sneakers are not only two different names but two separate Brands, although both come out of the Nike family.

What are the Differences Between OG Jordans and Retro Jordans?

The simple answer to this question is that the OG Jordans are the original Air Jordan sneakers that have not been rereleased ever. The Retro Jordan seakers are those that have been rereleased. That is the basic difference, so lets look at Retro vs OG Jordans.

Michael Jordan retired in 2003, however the popularity of his shoes never diminished, even now they are still in great demand the world over. Even in 2017 when some of the Air Jordan sneakers have reached the ripe old age of 30+ they remain very popular. In fact Jordan shoes are the top ranking shoes in the world today and they not only sell sneakers but apparel, sandals and more.

The Retro Jordans are shoes that Michael wore while he was still playing for the Chicago Bulls, or classic Air Jordan sneakers that have been rereleased, sometimes more than once. Retro shoes have been slightly modified and then rereleased into the market. Modifications are done to the type of material used to make the sneaker and of course incorporating modern technology into the shoe giving it new life and renewing its popularity, especially with the younger market. The design however remains the same classic look it was originally released with. Many different models of the Air Jordan have been rereleased over the years, in fact entire models of Jordan basketball shoes have been Retrod. They are extremely popular and in some cases some of the models have been rereleased several times over. Nike selected the coolest Jordan sneakers over the last 30 years, and some of the greatesthave been resurrected by the Retro Jordan range.

OG Jordan, as we said, are the models that have never been rereleased onto the market at all. These are the classic Jordan sneakers that are all still exactly the same as when they were originally released. These shoes are called OG or originals. The Jordan 1 is an OG, and because they are over thirty years in age, they are one of the rarest Jordans of all time. People have paid up to $25000 for these rare OG Jordan. Some of the newer fans prefer the Retro’s because they are modernised in material and technology, however there are those who prefer the classic Air Jordan to the newer versions even in 2017 many years after Michael’s retirement from the NBA.

Whether you prefer the OG or the Retro, the Jordan remains a classic. Despite its age and in this modern time it has not lost its flavour amongst young and old alike.

Does Nike Still Own Jordans?

Jordan sneakers were inspired by the legendary Michael Jordan during his playing days in the NBA. The deal for Jordan line of basketball shoes was struck in 1984 and released to the public in 1985, and yes theystill do own Jordan. Air Jordan are and have always been part of the family. However in 1997 theyallowed Jordan to become a sub-brand. This means that for all intents and purposes the Jordan labelcame into its own while still staying in the family. Although Jordan are still very much part of Nike, they do not sport any of their logos and only have the Jumpman logo on them. The Air Jordan with the Swoosh are collectors items in 2017 not so long a time after the rebranding.

How to tell if Air Jordans are Real?

Air Jordans are one of the most popular shoes in the world. Needless to say they are often counterfeited the world over due to their popularity, in fact there are factories set up in foreign countries whose main manufacturing business is to counterfeit Jordan shoes. Some of the indicators to them being fake, are price, and quality. There are no cheap Jordan shoes on the market so price is a good indicator. Quality is a mainstay of the Jordan lableand this can be a good indicator if the shoe you are about to buy is fake.

So what can you look for to determine that you are buying an original, authentic Jordan? After all you do not want to fork out a couple of hundred dollars for a Jordan to find it is not worth the money you spent. You need to know for sure it is the genuine article before buying. Firstly know what shoe you are looking to buy, and if you are not sure what it should look like Google it, often you can find the shoes on Amazon to give you a good indication of what it should be like. Each Jordan has specific characteristics you can look out for, such as what labels appear on the shoe, release date etc so what all can you check for, even before seeing the shoe? We will list a few of them here, but the list is not exhaustive, to help you set your mind at ease before buying the Jordan of your dreams.

  1. Check the quality of the box Nike always package their shoes in a box with a logo on the lid and on and on the side of the box. The lid should fit tightly. The colour of the box itself will be the same all over even on the inside of the lid. Check the spelling and alignment of the box itself too, it should be a quality box with uniform texture and no errors in the brand logo.
  2. Labelling on the Box – There will be a modelnumber on the box, this is nine digits long as well as details on the name, size, colour combination and country of manufacture listed on the side of the box.
  3. The nine digit number on the shoe should match the one on the box. Quality of the shoe is also a clue as to authenticity, spelling errors and uneven stitching will be a sure sign you are about to buy a fake. The tail end of the Q in fabrique should always start inside the circle. These are specific to the Jordan Taxi 11s.
  4. There should be a production date on the label that will match the original production run. Just remember that if you are buying a Retro the production run date will be later than the original run.
  5. Check the attachment of the label, if it is misaligned or bumpy this could be an indicator that the shoe is fake.
  6. Check the labels on the shoe itself, are they were they are supposed to be? Are they properly aligned and do they have the right colour styling?
  7. Check the laces and shoelace tabs. Are they evenly spaced and exactly the same size. Does the logo appear in the right place on the tongue?
  8. Check the colour, is it one you have never seen before? It would be a good ideato Google the model you are about to purchase to see if that colour is found in that shoe.
  9. Check the patent leather on the shoe to determine the quality, as well as the overall quality of the workmanship on the shoe. If it is not up to standard, then there is a high likelihood that the shoe is fake. If the shoe has patent leather, then there will be two evenly spaced rows of stitching with high quality patent leather.
  10. Check the height of the heel of the shoe you are looking to purchase. Again Google if you are not sure what it should be.
  11. Check the back heel tab of the shoe, check that the number displayed is correct and in alignment with the shoe itself.
  12. Check the materials being used in the shoe itself and the sole of the shoe, if you are not certain what materials are used in that specific model then you will have to Google it.
  13. The pattern on the sole of the shoe should match the specific shoe you are looking to buy.
  14. Finally the overall stitching on the shoe should be of high quality. They should not appear squashed or two far apart but evenly spaced.

Also remember is you are buying your Air Jordan shoe whether it be Retro or OG online you should always be sure you are buying from a legitimate retailer such as Amazon. So do you checking and buy from reputable dealers and you should have no problem getting an authentic, classic OG or Retro Jordan shoe in no time.
