Set to Drop: Air Jordan 9 Retro University Blue

The University Blue Air Jordan 9 Retros are next up for release in an already solid Holiday 2020 lineup. Fun fact about the Air Jordan 9 – it’s the first model released while Michael wasn’t playing for the Chicago Bulls. In fact, the 9’s released during the year in which Jordan decided to retire from basketball and try his hand at pro baseball. While Jordan may not have worn these on the hardwoods, the 9’s still saw the court as PEs for other players such as Penny Hardaway which were similar in look to the pair releasing on December 5th. 

This “UNC themed” Air Jordan 9 Retro follows the more traditional and OG colorway. The uppers are comprised of White leather featuring the classic perforated panels that give the 9’s a unique design. The Black felt overlay that runs the entire length of the shoe and up the heel to the collar along with the Black midsole provides a nice contrast to the White leather. University Blue is actually used sparingly throughout the shoe and can only be found on the tongue, heel, midsole, and bottom.

While these Air Jordan 9 Retros may be simple, they certainly are clean and versatile. For complete store location and release information, be sure to keep tabs on our social media pages and bookmark our site.

The Air Jordan 9 Retro University Blue release on Saturday, December 5th and will retail for $190.
