The Air Jordan XX9 is in many ways the polar opposite of the Air Jordan XX8. When the XX8 launched, it was a stealthy release that was shrouded (sometimes literally) in mystery. The XX9 is a little bit different, as sneakerheads and ballers in Las Vegas and Chicago have had a chance to try out a pair during wear test events while also getting a chance to pre-order them (what a concept, right?) on the spot. Maybe Jordan Brand was hesitant with the XX8 because it was so different, but the brand’s confidence in the XX9 is evident.
Kicks On Fire has had a chance to rock a pair of the XX9 both in Las Vegas and Chicago, but for the first time ever, we got a chance to wear them on the court at Terminal 23 in New York City. Check out the highlights as we took on the elite sneaker bloggers and influencers in NYC and see how much of a performance marvel the XX9 really is.
