Jordan Brand takes a break from retro releases for a moment to highlight its future. The latest colorway of the Air Jordan XX9 continues the all-black precedent set by successful Nike releases like the Flyknit Run Roshe and Air Max 90 Premium, outfitting the sneaker with a delightfully minimal upper and outsole. The subtly patterned knit upper is nicely contrasted with a white Jumpman® at the sides, also complimented by Jordan’s signature number at the heel. An irresistibly versatile cross of basketball style and street sensibilities, this version of the Air Jordan XX9 will drop on December 6 at select Jordan accounts.
