Overview of the Jordan 1 Mid University Blue for Women

The Air Jordan 1 is the sneaker that started it all, marking the beginning of the most iconic lineage of sneakers in history. In many ways, it's responsible for launching modern-day sneaker culture as a whole—and it almost didn't happen.

History of Air Jordan 1

As the story goes, the year was 1984, and Chicago Bulls' rookie Michael Jordan was a hot commodity for endorsement deals, with sneakers naturally being paramount.

Jordan had just come off a stellar college basketball season at the University of North Carolina. He wore Converse and was a personal fan of Adidas, so he took meetings with both companies, but they never reached a deal. It seems strange today, but at the time, Michael Jordan hated Nike—so much so that he refused to take a meeting with them.

He was persuaded by his mother, Deloris Jordan, to visit the Nike campus in Oregon and listen to their pitch. His plan was to go through the motions to appease his parents and agent but he ultimately left with a contract unlike any other.

Rather than walking in the shadows of established athletes like Magic Johnson and Larry Bird (which may have been the case had he signed elsewhere), Michael Jordan shone in the Nike limelight. He was paid more than any other athlete with a sneaker endorsement at the time. Nike made him the face of its growing presence in basketball, and gave him his own sneaker line—called Air Jordan.

Jordan 1 Mid University Blue

The Jordan 1 Mid University Blue women's sneaker was released on April 26, 2021. The upper on this sneaker is fitted with black and white synthetic leather overlays and features a prominent black Nike Swoosh on each sidewall. Jordan University Blue mesh accents are located at the high ankle, underneath the black padded collar lining. A white Air Jordan Wings emblem is located on the lateral side between the two mesh accents. Air Jordan branding is featured on the face of the tongue. These black, white, and blue Jordans also have an Air sole unit embedded in the heel. The University Blue rubber outsole features a multidirectional pattern designed to improve traction.
