Tailor Made: The Finer Details Of The Air Jordan XX9

April 17th, 2014 by / 8

Jordan Brand introduced a new performance-woven upper technology in today’s unveiling of the Air Jordan XX9. The highly anticipated successor to the XX8 was shown for the first time at a media event in New York, billed with the tagline ‘Tailored for Flight’. Russell Westbrook described the Jordan 29 as feeling extremely comfortable the instant he put them on, and that’s no coincidence. A team of legendary Jordan Brand designers, which include Tinker Hatfield, Mark Smith, and Tiffany Beers, created a revolutionary new flagship that combines the heralded Flight Plate with a one-piece upper carefully crafted to mold to your foot.

Moving from a more traditionally layered if unconventional design like the Jordan 28 to the 29 is a huge leap. It required extensive collaboration with the master craftsmen in the Italian factory responsible for the game-changing upper. This is a shoe whose material allows for it to surpass old school layering while simultaneously providing a more precise expression of prints and patterns than any other; quite simply the most advanced upper ever seen in the Air Jordan line. There’s a lot to take in from Jordan Brand’s latest foray into the Air Jordan, so let’s examine this next generation masterpiece in greater detail:

I put it like this. Any new shoe design JORDAN puts out is theTOP DOG in the shoe game ESPECIALLY in the streets where basketball is the game of choice by many. Now some the designs make catch you off guard in the beginning but with a little vision & the right outfit you got PURE BUTTER ! Always remember the HISTORY of JORDAN the man & how he not only changed basketball but also showed players how to BRAND their name into a business . IT'S MORE THAN JUST THE SHOES . JORDAN'S will always be #1.

Take that big ass jumpman off first of all


As the C.E.O. of Jordan brand we sent a free shipment to celebrities so they can wear 'em casually and to help persuade you into buyin' 'em. Watch Jordan brand apply "Bel-Air", "Sprite", "Oregon", "Concord", "Space Jam", etc. onto 'em.


they kinda look like the fly wades from a side profile. disappointing from a design stand point but extremely curious to know how they feel on the court.
