In 1984, Nike signed Michael Jordan to a $2.5 million endorsement deal before he began playing with the Chicago Bulls. In 1985, they gave Jordan his signature line of sneakers and released the Air Jordan I, which sold for $65. Jordan was fined $5,000 every time he wore the shoes during a game because they were against the NBA's rules restricting colors on basketball shoes. Nike did not develop Air Jordan II until 1987 but since then a new Air Jordan shoe has been released every year.
