Whether Michael is playing or not, his latest shoes will always come with lofty expectations, and his brand will never rest when it comes to aiming to create worthy contributions to the unrivaled Air Jordan legacy. Earlier this month, Jordan Brand unveiled the long-awaited 29th installment of the Air Jordan signature franchise, complete with a media event in NYC and a flurry of visuals and info regarding the latest addition to the family. Now that the dust has settled, we’ve all had our first impressions and some time to soak it all in, so we thought we’d circle back for a closer look at the Air Jordan XX9, its materials and technology, and the impact it will have on the market when it hits store shelves this Fall.

Even before BAIT opened the doors of its first retail location back in the Summer of 2012, we had already caught wind of their Olympics-inspired ASICS “Rings Pack”. The ambitious five-shoe collection not only made the statement that BAIT would be hitting the ground running when it came to collaborative projects, but also cemented a strong relationship with ASICS that has since gone on to produce other co-branded fruits like last year’s “Phantom Lagoons” Gel Saga and most recently, an intriguing conceptual three-pack of Gel Lyte IIIs.

Back in January, Packer Shoes kicked off the ten year anniversary of their Teaneck, NJ store with the release of their first ever ASICS collaboration. Rather than taking the safe route and opting for one of the brand’s more established silhouettes, Packer chose to explore new ground by giving the newly re-introduced Gel-Kayano Trainer its first collaborative whirl with the “All Roads Lead to Teaneck” concept – a theme that paid tribute to the shop’s loyal customers and their decade strong eagerness to travel from all over to make their way to the store.

In every major sport, the star players will always attract the attention of corporate heavyweights looking to align their product with popular and marketable athletes. Footwear is no doubt a common denominator among all the sports and the big name brands have been scrambling to sign the big name players for decades now. Tennis and basketball were the industry pioneers when it came to introducing the concept of the signature shoe, but in the ’80s the spectrum broadened significantly into other sports with football emerging as one of the prime targets for market expansion.

There once was a time when it was just about completely unheard of for independent skate shoe brands like Etnies, DC, and Duffs to be on the same wall as Air Jordans and running shoes, and there was little common ground to justify those two worlds ever crossing paths. There were definitely early basketball models from Nike, adidas, and Puma that caught on with ’80s skaters, but on the retail end, it was still two drastically different worlds.

From Superman, Diesel, and Shaq Fu to the Big Aristotle, Banana, or Baryshnikov, over the course of Shaquille O’Neal’s legendary basketball career, he has gone by more different names than you could ever hope to count. And while it didn’t exactly originate on the basketball court, one of the most fondly-remembered of them all came from Shaq’s role playing the character, Neon Boudreaux, in the 1994 movie, Blue Chips. The film may not have brought home any Oscar hardware for the cast and crew, but as far as b-ball movies are concerned, it has gone on to become a certified classic.
