Just like the Air Jordan 1s you got a first look at quite a while back, the Jordan Brand is set to release a patent leather-equipped Air Jordan 9 that calls upon an alternate University Of North Carolina color scheme. Usually when it comes to nods to MJ’s alma mater, that familiar shade of Carolina Blue takes center stage, but this time around – and with that aforementioned AJ1 – it is Midnight Navy that is responsible for the most of this offering’s real estate. While pairs will of course be hitting retailers in adult sizes, it turns out that the whole family will get to be involved, with units dropping in sizes for Big Kids, Little Kids, and Toddlers as well. Pictured here is the pair for Big Kids, but you can expect that even the smallest of sizes will come with the same embellishments featured below, just slightly shrunken down in order to seamlessly fit onto the diminutive panelling of the smaller sneaker. Enjoy another look at the upcoming UNC 9s here and expect pairs to touch down at retailers the world over on February 9th.
