The Air Jordan 2009 is not just another innovative sneaker with clean lines from the Jordan Brand; it's the first sneaker in a new chapter. After the release of the Jordan XX3 in 2008, Jordan Brand decided that their signature model would now be named after the year it was created. This reinforces the importance of Jordan's "23". As for the Air Jordan 2009, it features a new Articulated Propulsion Technology that ensures a responsive feel on the court with strong propulsion characteristics.

Overall Rating for Air Jordan 2009
Rasheem, Miami, Fl
"This is a great basketball shoe!! I've pretty much tested every Jordan/Nike basketball shoe, and as for performance this is up there with the best of them. With today's sneaker technology the shoe offers great protection from the rigors of basketball...with...great ankle support (there's actual padding on the inside to brace the achilles), precise tread placement (the heel "heel" actually provides better grip to help the shoe maneuver and run fast, and the interlace provides snug foot support and flexibility. If you're a small guard this may be a weighty shoe for you. But it performs well for positions 1-3. Bigs may want extra support. But its a fast grippy shoe. All in all this a great shoe for the avid baller. The shoe is pricey, but if you can catch it on sale AND utilize a coupon, it's a great buy. If your a sneaker enthusiast you have to add this to your collection."
