The Jordan Flight 9 is another in a line of Jordan’s that piece together classic Air Jordan’s of the past to create an entirely new silhouette. The Flight 9 draws special consideration from MJ’s Olympic days when he soared his way to two gold medals in ’84 and ’92, the latter with the Dream Team. Jordan wore the #9 during his Olympic stints which is where the Flight 9 name comes from and the design elements used throughout the shoes have been taken from those which MJ wore during the Olympic games. Just in case you didn’t know the details behind the sneakers there you have it. Now let’s get into this specific model.
Hitting Jordan Brand retailers as a GS release for the girls comes the Jordan Flight 9 – Black/Violet Pop-White. In a 50/50 split the upper is constructed from a mix of black nubuck and white patent leather. The same two colors pair up for the mid-sole as well, with plentiful amounts of violet pop appearing throughout the entire sneaker to spiff things up a bit. Although they’ve been listed as a girls release in Jordan Brand catalog’s we’re sure some of the younger guys out there who’ve got an eye on the Flight 9 wouldn’t mind picking a pair up for themselves. If that’s the case, go for it young one!!
