The sneaker craze hit mainstream when Nike and Michael Jordan introduced Air Jordans in 1985. Even at a retail price back then of $125, stores couldn’t keep the shoes on the shelf, and Jordans quickly became a sought-after status symbol. In a shrewd marketing move, Nike continued to produce a new style of Jordans every year. The shoes proved so popular that, by the early 1990s, some estimates say that 1 in every 12 Americans had a pair of Air Jordans.
For many of us, buying a pair of sneakers is a chore. But for a sneaker collector, there's no greater joy than a fresh pair of kicks. "THE SOLE FIRM" is here and ready to take our place in this growing subculture, whose members are proud to call themselves “sneakerheads.”
