Jordan Brand is capitalizing on the the return of the Air Jordan 11 Space Jam by adding a few more sneakers to the collection. Also included in the Space Jam collection will be an Air Jordan 31 and this OG colorway of the Air Jordan 9.
This isn’t the first time that we’ll see the release of this Air Jordan 9 as we’ve seen it release a handful of times since making its debut back in 1994. If you’ve watched Space Jam before then you know that Michael Jordan did actually wear these in the movie (see image above), so the nickname does make sense. It’s just weird to see Jordan Brand wait this long to call it that. I guess it’s all abut the marketing.
The newly named Air Jordan 9 Space Jam is scheduled to release on December 3, 2016 for $190.
