Jordan and Nike: Revolution of the Sole • In 1984 Jordan was drafted by the Chicago Bulls as the 3rd draft pick • Nike had struggling revenue and was looking for a fresh endorser to help with sales • Michael was not interested in Nike and preferred Adidas or Converse • After much persuasion by his agent and his parents, Michael decided to go see Nike’s offer • “Those are the devil’s colours” said Michael after viewing the Jordan 1’s • He would then sign a 5 year $2.5 million deal, plus royalties, with Nike • The rest is history, as Michael soared into greatness, so did his shoe line http://www.joranzone.com
