New Air Jordan XX9 Sneaker Sees Release Date Online
The year 2014 marks the release of the new Air Jordan XX9 sneaker. Every year, Jordan Brand pushes itself to present the latest on-court basketball shoe with upgraded innovation and style. After Nike’s official press release a few months ago, the new model finally sees a release date. Two colorways are expected to drop in September 2014, the Air Jordan XX9 Black/Team Orange and the elephant printed “Bulls” colorways.
The new Air Jordan XX9 comes with a ton of technology and is made for performance. The on-court shoes feature a woven upper for more comfort, support and breathability. It also offers Flight Plate Technology in the outsole between the forefoot and heel to provide a more stable heel-to-toe shift.
The Air Jordan XX9 “Team Orange” features a black upper with a big orange Jumpman logo on the side and the number “23” on the tongue. The shoe sits on a black midsole sporting a cement pattern and an icy blue outsole.
The Air Jordan XX9 “Bulls” Elephant features a black/red upper with elephant prints on the side panel, toe box and heel. The shoes are accompanied with a small Jumpman logo on the side and on the tongue, while sitting on a black midsole and outsole.
The release date for the XX9 “Bulls” colorway is set for September 3, 2014 and the XX9 “Team Orange” will release on September 13, 2014. The retail price for both shoes are $225 USD.
No doubt the XX9 would be a great performance shoe on-court, but what about off-court? Perphaps with better colorways these shoes have potential to be rocked off-court too. The XX9 is a nice upgrade from the XX8 with the shawl around the shoe. What do you think of the latest Air Jordan model?
