Sneaker News presents a wonderful image of the latest Air Jordan 9 Retro design. It’s a beautiful combination of black and white with red accents just along the mouth of the shoe. The white colors actually extend beyond the sole and outsole of the kicks, possibly occupying around 1 /4 of the whole body. The heels are done completely in white, travelling along the outer lining of the shoe including the part nearest the tongue.
The lace holes are also marked with white, creating a nice contrast with the black body. Unlike other shoe designs, the laces are circular so you’ll never have to worry about them being perfectly flat against the shoes.
The tongue and laces are all done in black with the mouth done with red accents. You can see the red again at the back, utilized as the color for the Air Jordan’s logo. Inside the shoe, you’ve got a full black ensemble and although you can’t see it at first, this somehow contributes to the overall charm of the Retro.
The bottom heel sports a full black design together with a few centimeters of the front outsole. The iconic Jump Man logo is placed on the bottom heel in red, making it stand out despite of the small size. The bottom portion is in all black with a classic pattern with the inclusion of another Jump Man design. This means that with every step you take, you’ll be leaving Jump Man icons everywhere.
