Jordan Brand certainly takes great pride in their unrivaled legacy and pays tribute to it often, but the main focus is, and always has been, style and performance innovation. With Michael’s fiercely competitive spirit always in mind, the brand is constantly exploring new ways to push things forward and grow the Jordan legend, whether it’s through their performance basketball offerings or their off the court lifestyle initiatives.
