Air Jordan 9 Retro “Anthracite”
Release Date:September 5, 2015
The Air Jordan 9 is one of those iconic shoes that managed to achieve immortal status thanks to “The Spirit” sculpture of Michael Jordan wearing a pair of Air Jordan 9 silhouette. In this new version, the shoes boast of an “anthracite” colorway which, for those who are not sure what this means, is primarily a black shade with a little ting of brown. It is hard to be definite about the exact color of the shoes without using complicated terms from the color wheel.
The pictures however tell you as much as you need to known about these kicks. Nike decided to be a little conservative with the colorway, limiting their choices to black, white, as well as a few hints of dark brown along the soles. The white is limited to the eyelets and tongue is kept in its dark color.
Following the general theme of the silhouette, the Air Jordan 9 “Anthracite” boasts of a logo on the tongue as well as at the heels. The tongue contains the Air Jordan printing in words while at the back; you have got the iconic Jump Man logo. Right under that is the number 23, this time done in white so that it definitely stands out from the back. The same Jump Man logo can be found on the outsole, the print of a white Jump Man broadcasting exactly where the kicks came from.
The laces are done in classic black that further makes the white eyelets stand out. Needless to say, the Anthracite looks like it is going to be an all-time favorite for many Jordan shoe fans.
The shoes are supposed to be available in all Jordan Brand Stores by the time the 7th of September hits. If you are interested, be sure to reserve yours now or suffer the line that usually comes with a new Air Jordan release. If this black number is not to your liking however, you can try checking out the white version of the Air Jordan 9 silhouette dubbed “The Spirit”. With these two options, you should be able to easily choose the one that works best for you!
