Paired with a young sports star whose ascendancy
defied gravity, Moore’s art form inspired a pop-
culture phenomenon.

Moore designed the original Air Jordan sneakers. 

They were first worn by Chicago Bulls rookie basketball
star Michael Jordan in 1984 and then released to the
public before the end of
the NBA season in the spring
of 1985.

The sneaker biz has never been the same.

"The Air Jordan transformed the industry by turning
sneakers into objects of pop-culture desire," sneaker
expert and writer Brendan Dunne, co-host of "The
Complex Sneakers Podcast," told Fox News Digital. 

The original Air Jordan, he added, "set the standard
for footwear obsession in America."
