What was originally supposed to have been scrapped, the time has now arrived for the release of the Air Jordan IX (9) “Black Bottom”.

“The team associated with the brand love Jordans and none of us felt comfortable destroying a perfectly good product. Instead, we decided to do what Michael himself would have done…identify a challenge and attack it. In this case, consumers are the winners.”

Priced at $130, these kicks release later today at 7PM EST exclusively through through a link provided via the NikeStore Twitter account.
