The Air Jordan IX (9) Powder Blue released in 1993 might be one of the most sought after Jordans of all-time; deadstocks pairs come across only time to time and each pair commands top dollar. The Air Jordan IX (9), one of the least produced Jordans to date, is set to make a splash with the Powder Blue IX acting as the cannonball that’ll get everyone drenched in Jordan Retro fever. The Air Jordan IX was released when Michael Jordan first retired from the game of basketball after the tragic death of his father; another interesting piece of data was that the Air Jordan IX was NEVER worn by Jordan in a basketball game until his final season in 2003 (although he did wear a cleat version during his time with the double-A Birmingham Barons).
