Michael Jordan made a lot of money in his NBA career however his signature brand Nike shoes have made him a lot more money and that was just in 2014.  According to an infographic by Lisa Overton that appeared on PBS.org, “Jordan made more money selling sneakers ($100 million) than he did during his entire 15-year career ($94 million)” in 2014, making him the “highest-paid retired athlete in the world last year.”

The line of Nike Air Jordans includes some of the most iconic products in the world, and the attachment to its namesake has remained relevant long after Jordan retired. Given its wild popularity in 2014, it seems likely to remain relevant for many years to come.
