    For many basketball fans in the 1990s, that wasn't just a line said by
    Spike Lee's Mars Blackmon character in a commercial -- it was a way of
    life. Michael Jordan helped turn basketball sneakers into a
    multibillion-dollar industry.To get more news about cheap air jordan, you can visit nkspaces official website.nkspaces2010

    Episode
    5 of "The Last Dance" (9 p.m. ET, Sunday on ESPN and the ESPN App)
    delves into the global phenomenon that was the Air Jordan sneaker
    franchise and the off-court business surrounding the Chicago Bulls.

    In
    advance of that episode, longtime designer Tinker Hatfield and Jordan
    VP of Footwear Gentry Humphrey spoke with ESPN about the iconic Air
    Jordan line and the sneakers that were on Jordan's feet when he won each
    of his six championships.Jordan established himself atop the NBA
    hierarchy, knocking off Converse icon Magic Johnson and the Los Angeles
    Lakers in his first NBA Finals. Jordan ushered in a new era in the NBA
    in an amplified shade of Bulls red -- dubbed "infrared" -- with a molded
    heel tab inspired by the rear spoiler on his Porsche.

    Michael
    actually started influencing more design power over the process, and I
    was cool with that," Hatfield said. "He started feeling like his
    signature look shouldn't have a [toe] tip. He was wearing dress shoes at
    the time that had a cleaner toe and a molded toe."

    Gone was the
    extra toe panel that defined each of his models to that point, while the
    heel tab was complemented by a taller, rubberized tongue that allowed
    for easier entry.

    "We always say that if some things are similar
    from one year to the next, there should always be something that's
    radically different," Hatfield said.
