Update: Originally set to release in November, the Air Jordan 9 “Fire Red” is now set to release via SNKRS and select Jordan Brand stockists on December 13. Read the original article below for more info.


Original Story: The Air Jordan 9 may be the only Air Jordan silhouette from 1-14 that Michael Jordan didn’t wear on an NBA court, but that doesn’t mean it’s lacking for prestige. MJ was pursuing his diamond dreams with the Birmingham Barons (a minor league affiliate of the Chicago White Sox) when the Air Jordan 9 dropped in 1993, but instead of stymieing the silhouette his absence from the hardwood made it a potent placeholder. Now, it’s back once again with a new “Fire Red” colorway that’s set to release in November — official images of which have just surfaced.

“Fire Red” is, of course, a familiar scheme in the Air Jordan lineage. It’s graced the Air Jordan 3, Air Jordan 4 and Air Jordan 5 plus plenty of other Nike sneakers, but this is the first time it’s been applied to the Air Jordan 9. It’s mostly used as an accent color, turning up the heat on the eyestays, branded details and heel tabs, while the lion’s share of the design is split between white leather and high-gloss “Wolf Grey” patent leather. Outsoles round off the look with multicultural graphics and text that nod to MJ’s global impact on the game.

You can expect the Air Jordan 9 “Fire Red” to touch down via Nike SNKRS and select Swoosh stockists on November 5. Men’s pairs will be priced at $200 USD.
