Ultimate Michael Jordan – Shoes, Jerseys, Memorabilia & More

Michael Jordan products
Updated April 3, 2021

Introduction

Welcome to the most comprehensive guide to Michael Jordan products you’ll ever find. He is the NBA’s GOAT and remains an incredibly popular athlete. His Air Jordan brand shoes still dominate the market, easily outselling today’s basketball stars such as Lebron James and Kevin Durant.

A legend like MJ has a different set of products in the market than a current NBA player. As you’ll see below there’s a limited amount of fan gear and new collectibles, but there’s a deep selection of shoes, sports cards, signed items, and other memorabilia to choose from. We picked our favorites and provided links to view the complete inventory available from our partner sites the official NBA Store and SportsMemorabilia.com

MICHAEL JORDAN SHOES

Our focus is providing a list of the best Michael Jordan shoes that you can buy and wear today. If you’re looking for rare Jordan shoes we recommend checking StockX.com or StadiumGoods.com. Both sites have a deep inventory of premium priced shoes being sold by collectors.

Jordan is unique when it comes to shoes. There are monthly re-releases of Air Jordans he wore during his playing days with the Chicago Bulls. He’s also involved with creating Jordan Brand shoes worn by Zion Williamson, Chris Paul, Russel Westbrook and other current NBA stars. We’ve picked the best from both categories and recommend them below:

Nike Air Jordan 1 Low Reverse Bred Gym Red Black

The Air Jordan 1 is an iconic shoe that’s regularly launched by Nike in different styles and colors. It’s incredible that this shoe was originally released in 1985 and 35 years later it’s still extremely popular. The low version has been a big seller in the past few years and is available at affordable prices. This classic black and red low was recently re-stocked in the Fall of 2020.

Nike Mens Air Jordan 1 Mid SE Basketball Shoe

The mid high Air Jordan 1 is the exact shoe Jordan wore with the Bulls in the 1980s. There’s a consistent launch of new colors and styles produced by Nike every year. At the link above you’ll see a number of different options to select from. If you’re interested in a pair of these classic shoes this is a great place to start.

Nike Air Jordan 1 Mid Men

We’ve picked a few more Air Jordan 1s we want to highlight. This pair is a unique colorway and you’ll see a couple additional options that are hard to find. Digging through the AJ1 inventory can be difficult because you’ll find new releases mixed with premium priced collectors shoes. This is a great pair that can be worn with anything and is available at in the lower price range.

Air Jordan 1 Mid Mens Basketball Sneaker

Air Jordan 1s are rarely released with pink coloring so we had to include it. This pair will definitely stand out and is available in a full selection of sizes. Nike launched them in the Spring of 2020 so don’t wait too long to grab a pair. This type of release will usually be available for about a year and then the inventory is gone.

Nike Jordan B'loyal Mens Basketball Shoes

Moving on to more general Jordan releases, this one came out in late 2019 and combines elements of the Air Jordan 1, 4, and 5. Nike produces these blended versions on a regular basis for select retailers. It’s a great way of combining famous elements of multiple Jordan shoes and we love the look of this pair. The B’loyal was first made in 2007 and has remained very popular.

Nike Jordan Proto-max 720 Mens

This is a unique basketball shoe that we had to include. It combines the latest Nike Air technology with the classic elements of a Jordan Brand shoe. The 720 air unit runs the length of the outsole for visible cushioning. The overall design is futuristic and was inspired by space flight. This is a great pair of shoes that provide excellent comfort and style for walking around or playing basketball.

Nike Air Jordan XXXIV

This is the latest Air Jordan and is number 34. It was released in late 2019 and there’s still good selection left. Since the Air Jordan 1 launched in 1985 there’s been a new release each year. The Air Jordan 35 (XXXV) is hitting the market soon and we will update this guide in the coming weeks and provide a review. The 34 (XXXIV) was seen on Zion Williamson throughout the 2019/20 NBA season in multiple colors and Player Editions.

Jordan 13 Retro Flint (2020)

We had to include this retro version of the Jordan 13 that was released in May 2020. This release is a fan favorite because it was worn by MJ during the historic 1998 season when he completed his second NBA title three-peat. You can see him wearing these throughout the Chicago Bulls documentary “The Last Dance”.

Air Jordan Slides

Finally if you’re looking for a simple and inexpensive way of showing your Jordan fandom, we highly recommend grabbing a pair of slides. This is a staple of Jordan brand footwear every year and there are many colors and options to choose from. Classic black with a white jumpman logo is our favorite.

MICHAEL JORDAN JERSEYS:

The jersey inventory for retired NBA stars is more limited than what you’ll find for current players. There will be some special releases from time to time but the year round inventory is usually focused on the classics. If we see any limited edition Jordan jerseys hit the market we’ll add them here.

>>> All Michael Jordan youth sized jerseys are currently sold out. We will add a review and link as soon as they’re restocked. 

Michael Jordan Chicago Bulls Mitchell & Ness 1984-85 Hardwood Classics Rookie Authentic Jersey - Red

This is one of the all-time best retro jerseys. It’s MJ’s rookie year Bulls jersey in red from the 1984/85 season. It’s made by Mitchell & Ness so it’s a premium high quality product. There are many famous styles of the Chicago Bulls jersey from Jordan’s career but there’s something special about his rookie season. This jersey is also available in white if you prefer the home version.

Men's Chicago Bulls Michael Jordan Mitchell & Ness Black 1997-98 Hardwood Classics Authentic Player Jersey

Outside of Jordan’s rookie year the most famous season of his career is 1997/98. The story of this season was the focus of The Last Dance. It was peak Jordan mania and it ended with his 6th title playing with Scottie Pippen and his 3rd in a row playing with Dennis Rodman. The black Bulls jersey was a staple during 97/98 and is one of the most popular Jordan jerseys ever produced. You choose from black or white on the product page. 

Michael Jordan North Carolina Tar Heels Jordan Brand Alumni Player Limited Basketball Jersey - White

Jordan’s North Carolina Tar Heels NCAA jersey is another classic. If you like repping your favorite player with their college jersey this is an awesome pick. The inventory is only restocked a couple times a year so if you see your size act fast. Another benefit of this jersey is that it’s made by Jordan Brand and is significantly less expensive than the Mitchell & Ness NBA jerseys.

This is one of the most famous Jordan photos of all-time and a best selling poster in the 90s. It’s a photo from the 1998 NBA Slam Dunk contest at the all-star game in Chicago.

We couldn’t resist including a special MJ rookie baseball card. This is an awesome collector’s item. It’s from 1990 when he took batting practice with the Chicago White Sox. At the time, no one knew Jordan would retire in the mid 90s to chase his baseball dreams in the minor leagues.

A great card that you can buy for well under $100. It’s a “Team MVP” card from Upper Deck. It shows Jordan holding the Larry O’Brien trophy at the Chicago Bulls championship celebration. They had just beaten the Portland Trailblazers for Jordan’s second title. They would go on during the 1992/93 season and win another title to complete the three-peat.

SPORTS CARD SETS

Michael Jordan Signed Photo - 1988 Slam Dunk Contest Unframed

This poster was listed above in our guide as one of top Michael Jordan photos ever. Getting an autographed copy would be incredible. It was hand signed by MJ and Upper Deck changed the treatment so that Jordan and the hoop stand out. MJ’s signature is in silver and perfectly placed.

Michael Jordan Autographed Fleer Rookie Blow Up - Upper Deck

There are not many signed Jordan sports cards currently on the market so we’re recommending something unique. This is a blown up version of the famous 1987/88 Fleer Jordan rookie card we covered in this guide. It’s one of the top sports cards ever produced and is credited with sparking huge demand for basketball cards.  When Upper Deck came up with this idea they found out the original image had been lost, so they asked famed sports artist Chuck Gillies to hand paint a replica.
