Michael Jordan during press conference for his Nike shoes

Michael Jordan retired from basketball in 2003, but he remains busy with endorsements especially for his Nike shoes. In fact, his $110 million endorsement deal with Nike is what still keeps him on the Forbes annual list of the world’s 100 highest-paid athletes.
Paving the way for other athletes

Although Jordan was the first athlete to receive a major shoe deal and remains "king of the basketball shoe market," he has opened the door for other NBA players to also get shoe deals. And that list is growing!

  • LeBron James: $32 million, Nike
