Air Jordan 9 Football Cleats (1)

While Jordan Brand is releasing several versions of the classic Air Jordan 9 during the fourth quarter of 2012, it will also be creating several football cleat versions of the classic, in both high and low top versions. Many would assume that this is the first time that the shoe has been cleated, but in fact, it isn’t. Back when MJ decided to quit basketball and play minor league baseball, he rocked the cleated version on the field. Below are some of the performance elements of the cleat:

-Air Sole units in forefoot and heel for responsive, flexible cushioning
-Rubber outsole with outrigger for lateral support
-One-pull lacing system
-Inner bootie for a dynamic fit
-Lightweight polyurethane midsole

Here is a list of players that will wear the Air Jordan 9 Cleats on Sunday.
