‘Adidas Air Jordan’ By Thomas Le

If you’ve watched ESPN’s ‘The Last Dance’ doc, you’ll be familiar with the fact that Michael Jordan actually wanted to initially sign with Adidas. However, due to them being unable to facilitate a deal, Jordan ended up inking what would become a game-changing deal with Nike to create his Air Jordan line.

But, what would have happened if Adi had have been able to make that deal with Jordan at the time? Designer Thomas Le envisioned what a future where MJ was with the three stripes may have looked like.

“In 1984 Michael Jordan signed a historic deal with Nike to design his sneaker line. Back then, he was actually fiercely loyal to Adidas, but they were unable to workout a deal. This huge “what if” inspired me to create an Adidas Air Jordan concept lifestyle sneaker.” – Thomas Le
