Air Jordans for the most part are manufactured in the country of China. They were manufactured for the first time in 1985.
Although most pairs of Air Jordans are manufactured in China, several pairs of the shoes have been manufactured in different countries by special order. For example, the 2nd model of the Air Jordan line of shoes was made in Italy to make sure that the shoe had a luxury feel to it. With new shoes coming out every month, there are many fake models manufactured all over the globe, but as far as authentic production, the base of operations lies in China, where there are two main plants.
