Nikes Air Jordan brand was designed for the most well known basketball player Michael Jordan. Jordan made this brand so popular that new releases of retro shoes only release one time every few years.

Shoe companies such as Nike, Adidas and Under Armour are known to give professionals their own signature shoe. Starting with Nike you see NBA players all the way to professional soccer players. NBA players you can find with their own Nike shoe are Kevin Durant, a well known player for the Warriors, Kobe Bryant, Paul George, Kyrie Irving, and even Labron James. When I said professional soccer you can probably only think of one signature shoe, but it is available in many different styles based on where you are playing. Nike release a soccer cleat for Cristiano Ronaldo and that cleat even came in shoe form for indoor soccer use.
