Today, Nike finally announced the 29th Nike Air Jordan. The Jordan XX9 sheds the boot the Air Jordan XX8 used, but keeps the performance updates such as a flight plate and air zoom. The XX9 does add a performance-woven upper. Supposedly inspired by Italian suit tailoring, the performance-woven upper makes the XX8 look closer to the Kobe 9 than the Jordan XX9.
The Black/Red colorway borrows from the Air Jordan 3 elephant print and the Retro 14 heel. Only two colorways were announced in the event.
Release dates and pricing were not included in the unveiling, but given the high price tag of the Jordan XX8 and Kobe 9 we expect this silhouette to push the $250 mark.
