They say all good things must come to an end, but was it really true? The Air Jordan 9 dropped in 1993 as basketball fans experienced the first NBA season after Michael Jordan’s first retirement. Even though MJ moved over to baseball, he remained the most popular athlete in the world.
To reflect his iconic status, Nike designer Tinker Hatfield developed a basketball shoe that represented the globalization of the Air Jordan brand. Check out the latest release of the Jordan 9 Retro in the White, Black, and Gym Red colorway at Hibbett Sports. These will be available in men’s, grade school, preschool and toddler sizes.
Known worldwide for their unique aesthetic, Jordan 9s deliver the perfect combination of performance and style. The lightweight, secure lockdown design and Air-Sole heel cushions are Jordan mainstays. Whether you’re a hardcore baller or weekend warrior, these sneakers have the ability to take your game to the next level with the power of the Jumpman.
The Air Jordan 9 was the first signature sneaker Jordan never wore during a regular-season basketball game. However, the basketball shoes drew inspiration from the baseball cleats Jordan wore during his short stay in the minor leagues. One of the most notable colorways of the Jordan 9 was from Quentin Richardson’s PE he wore. Other NBA stars like Penny Hardaway, Mitch Richmond and Kendall Gil kept the 9 alive with player exclusives during Jordan’s time away from the court. This colorway takes a lot of inspiration from the colorway he wore on the court.
More than just a sweet-looking sneaker, Jordan 9s come equipped with performance-enhancing technology like ultra-light and supportive grip that optimizes traction. The shoes also feature a durabuck and leather upper for durability and a premium look. A neoprene inner sleeve provides a snug, comfortable fit, while a solid rubber cupsole delivers added durability and support.
Never out of style and easy to clean, the men’s Retro Jordan 9 shoes bring out your best — all tied up into one breathable, comfortable sneak.
