There were two extremely limited releases of the Air Jordan XX3 (23) last year and both sneakers came with wooden shoe trees. Could including a wooden shoe tree be Jordan Brand’s way of informing their fans of an upcoming limited release? If so, expect this Air Jordan 2009 to be sold out within minutes. Featuring patent and high-quality performance leathers, this pair yields a fairly simple black on black color scheme. Also including Articulated Propulsion Technology and an ecologically-friendly “Considered” design approach, this sneaker combines style with effectiveness. Though many despise of this sneaker, nobody can underestimate the importance of this release in relation to being a precursor of what is to come from Jordan Brand in 2009. Pictures via Kenlu.
The Air Jordan 2009 (2K9) S23 – Black / Metallic Gold is set to release tomorrow, January 31, 2009, at limited retailers for a price of $230.
