Since this year is an especially big year for the Air Jordan 1 with a number of OG and coveted new colorways releasing, as well as a year that Jordan Brand seems to be celebrating the early days of Michael Jordan’s history with the brand more than usual, it’s worth noting that today marks the 32nd anniversary of the day Nike and Jordan became official partners. Penning his signature to the contract on October 26, 1984, (Rob Strasser of Nike signed it two days earlier) Michael Jordan nor the world had any idea what the future would hold from that day forward. Coincidentally, this date also marks the anniversary of Michael’s first game in the NBA. The sports and sneaker worlds have never been the same since.
