Air Jordan 9 Retro “Barons”

Michael Jordan spent as much of his time on the baseball diamond as he did on the blacktop as a kid. Coinciding with the MLB season officially returning this week, Jordan Brand is celebrating with a special retro release paying homage to MJ’s time spent playing for Chicago White Sox affiliate the Birmingham Barons. Breathing new life into the Air Jordan 9 Retro, the sneaker is outfitted with a “Birmingham Barons” colorway (grey, black and white).

The Air Jordan 9 Retro “Barons” features a grey nubuck mudguard, white leather upper, black tongue and midsole, and a white outsole. Notice that the heel comes equipped with a “45” stitched on the back heel instead of the usual “23,” plus an inner lining accented by pinstripes.

Available in stores and online Saturday. Check out Release Locator for stores.
