In 1993, the same year Michael Jordan announced that he was stepping away from basketball; Nike released the Air Jordan 9 (IX). It was designed by Tinker Hatfield and represented the globalization of the Air Jordan brand name. The sneaker features words in different languages that represent Jordan's play, an inner bootie, encapsulated Air-Sole unit, "one-pull" lacing system, and a stitched "23" on the back. Nike also released a special cleated version of the Air Jordan 9 that MJ wore during his brief stint in baseball.

First released in 1993, the Jordan IX â€œPowder Blueâ€ is available again for your purchasing pleasure. Powder blue is splashed onto the basketball shoeâ€™s teeth. A white body and black woven tongue are also featured, whilst black laces tie everything together. The Released In 2010 And They Are Better Than Every !
