The Air Jordan XX9 is coming right out of the gates with this black/white/gym red version that sneaks some traditional Jordan Brand DNA in amongst all the high tech performance touches. For one there’s the colorway, which is an obvious riff off the all-important Chicago Bulls palette that has come to mean so much to the brand. On top of that that there are some elephant print graphics spun into the upper. Continue reading to see more exclusive angles on this Air Jordan 29 colorway that’s coming and remember that they will launch in September, 2014.
Air Jordan XX9
Color: Black/White-Gym Red
Release Date: 09/2014
The design is nice the thing that bothers me is the print. It's like they could not decide on sharp aggressive lines or natural lines. Maybe in the right colorway.
I get the tech advancement in shoe but the look is cheap. Makes shoe look all Walmart brand. No fan of kobe bryant but his current series of shoes are Nice Clean style with an edge. Something I can't say for these 29's
Seeing them on feet changed my mind. These are an easy cop. Daryl Narcis Zaki Abdul Rahman Leonard Lim
I would normally immediately just call these ugly but with the right outfit these may have potential.
The Jordan script and #23 on the back heel is kind of corny, but these are the best looking non-retro Jordan's since the 17's... IMO
I don't know man. At first I thought they were fucking terrible...but the more I look at 'em I STILL THINK THEY'RE FUCKING TERRIBLE!
after so many classics its hard to ever bring that same fire as with some of the best retros.. i think 29 should be the last...moving forward they need to just continue dropping more retros with various new Cws.
What do you expect from a PERFORMANCE based shoe? Wont be the best looking sneaker but it has the best tech for basketball. But that is what Jordans are for right? BASKETBALL
Have a funny feeling Jordan brand gonna design an AJ XX9 "Oregon" with an over sized "O" logo on it hahahaha..... and once they're given to a "celebrity" its a "not buy" to "a buy". Jordan brands Psychology.
Can't say I'm disappointed in these bcuz I didn't expect much the 28s were a plain shoe don't like these or the other ones
Flyknit on a Jordan lol. Good job Tinker your running out of ideas just like apple with the iPhone. .
The other version looks better but these are not better that the XX8s. The volt paisley colorway looks nice but I will pass on this color.
If the shoe you're designing already has 28 previous signature, for sure you will be running out of ideas. Wait til LBJ, KB, KD signature reach around 15-20's. Think about it, their shoes are already getting uglier. hehe
