5 Thoughts From Sneakerheads On The Air Jordan XX9


It’s almost hard to believe that it’s been 30 years since the first production of Air Jordans, but here we are anxiously awaiting the release of the XX9 like thirst-buckets waited for that Nicki Minaj “Anaconda” video drop. September 6 is the day you can finally get your hands on a pair from local retail spots, but the good folks at Jordan Brand invited us and a few other media outlets to come test out the kicks before they officially hit the streets.

What we loved about the shoes is how comfortable they fit, thanks to the performance woven upper that allows the shoe to stretch and mold immediately to your foot. The XX9 also provides stability and bounce thanks to the new, enhanced Flight Plate. Playing in these was like running on air, but enough about what we thought. Hit the arrows above to see what our friends and fellow sneaker aficionados thought about the latest J’s.
