Jordan Brand Honors Jordan’s Baseball Career with this Retro Release
The Air Jordan IX is synonymous with Michael Jordan’s first retirement from basketball, as it was the first shoe to release after he’d left the NBA to go play baseball. It’s only right that this would be the model that Jordan Brand used to tell that story, and we got one side of it a couple years back with the ‘Kilroy Pack’ and its various alter egos. This ‘Birmingham Barons’ Jordan 9 is based on the man himself, who played a bit of stickball with the Chicago White Sox Double-A affiliate before the MLB strike made him think twice about which sport offered a more stable future. We know for sure these are dropping next Saturday, so click in to get a better view and let us know if you’ll be swiping (your card for) a bag at stores like Nohble. If you’re ready to cop, get them now on eBay.
