Michael Jordan never hit the court in the Air Jordan 9, but that doesn’t mean you can’t. Jordan Brand is set to deliver another iteration of the silhouette, this time in a low.
The Air Jordan 9 Retro Low “Black/White” arrives on Saturday and will retail for $170.
The latest edition of the shoe features a black premium leather upper with red accents on the tongue, collar and heel. The red on the heels of the shoes comes in the form of Jordan’s longtime uniform number, 23, as well as the Jumpman logo sitting atop a globe. The shoe is completed with a black midsole and a white outsole. The Jumpman logo once again appears on the sole, sitting near the heel of the shoe.
The Air Jordan 9, according to the brand, was introduced in 1994, and a low-cut iteration of the shoe made its debut in 2002. The shoe was released after Jordan announced his retirement from basketball and never worn for a full season on the court by the basketball icon. Jordan Brand released the “Spirit” iteration of the shoe in August, an homage to the statue erected in front of the United Center in Chicago of Jordan wearing the sneakers.
