Air Jordan XX9: Tailored For Flight – Official Unveiling | Event Recap

By - April 17th, 2014

When ESPN’s Michael Smith took a pause for a moment while in the midst of his conversation with Tinker Hatfield, everyone knew it was time to scan the stage. In a fashion like a preacher greeting his congregation, Michael Jordan walked into the temple he helped to built…

Such was the atmosphere when Jordan Brand officially unveiled the Air Jordan XX9, the 29th iteration to its Air Jordan flagship model (Reported Live Here). Along with Jordan and Hatfield, the venue in New York City also saw the participation of designers Mark Smith and Tiffany Beers, who hosted intimate presentation on the AJXX9’s unique woven upper, an updated Flight Plate and other technical features not see before.

With a retail price of $225, the new Air Jordan XX9 will be available this September to welcome the new basketball season.
