Michael Jordan made a surprise entrance earlier this morning to unveil the follow up to the Air Jordan XX3, which was the last numbered Air Jordan. MJ took the entire room by surprise coming from the back of the room with the new Air Jordan 2009 in hand. MJ joined Jason Mayden the designer, Keith Houlemard the Jordan Brand President and the first women athlete in the Jordan roster April Holmes. For those of you who don’t know April Holmes, Holmes is the first female athlete on the Team Jordan roster and competes on the US Paralympics Track and Field Team. She owns the world records (women’s T44 classification) in the 100m, 200m and 400m dashes, and her many accomplishments have earned her the title of “world’s fastest amputee.” Jason Mayden and Michael Jordan spoke about the inspiration, development and design of the Air Jordan 2009 as well as MJ’s career developments that has taken Jordan Brand toward the Air Jordan 2009. Toward the end, Michael Jordan, Jason Mayden, April Holmes and Keith Houlemard took a number of questions from the audience with MJ answering the most. Not a surprise as this is a very rare appearance by Michael Jordan in the announcement of his signature sneaker.
