It all started in 1986 when Nike leaped faith by choosing a rookie from the Chicago Bulls to become their endorser. His name is Michael Jordan, a native of North Carolina.
The first ever Jordan sneakers that kissed a basketball court was released between 1985-1986.

It paved the way for basketball shoes to be used in the streets, wearing it as casual as possible. Sneaker summits were also everywhere, which, later on, developed a community for sneaker collectors, hence opened a channel for them to connect and socialize and sometimes trade shoes.
