Many experts view Nike as a better-mousetraps poster child: Nike engineered the best shoes and earned a reputation for great performance as a result. But, as we demonstrate, this argument does not align with the historical facts. Nike’s famed shoe innovations happened early on and do not coincide with the brand’s takeoff.
The company was having trouble getting consumers to pay attention to its air-cushion technology. Jordan ﬂew through the air in superhuman fashion on the way to his patented dunks.

Nike went to the trouble of designing a unique Jordan shoe for this purpose—Air Jordans. What set them apart was the ﬂashy red and black design, echoing the team colors of the Chicago Bulls, in contrast to the white shoes everybody else in the league wore.
