The Air Jordan line turned the basketball world upside down when it debuted in 1985. Over 30 years later, Jordans continue to be some of the world’s most sought-after shoes, delivering the perfect combination of innovative performance and street-worthy style.
Eastbay has been there every step of the way, from the introduction of the iconic AJ 1 to the hottest Jordans being released today. We combed through our archives, finding classic AJs that were showcased in the Eastbay magazine throughout the years. Eastbay has been your Jordan Retro Destination since 1985, when the AJ 1 graced our cover.
