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.
Overall Rating for Air Jordan IX (9) Retro

if you looking for a good pair of IX's look for the olive drab with red. Best color for the IX's. Still a great pair of shoes to add to the collection

Once I received my J's in the mail, I wore them the next day and immediately people started staring. I guess because I had them a week before they hit the stores!

Thank You who ever designed this version of the 9's. Overall on court performance this shoe is top of the line. I have also been getting random compliments on the streets from people and I have only worn them off of the court and out in public three times. I try not to wear them too much but they are so comfortable and eye catching I cant help but pull them out more than I would normally. I like to rotate through a bunch of different Jordans to minimize wear and tear, but these are too bomb to sit in the closet for a week at a time.These shoes are amazing and they are so comfortable.
