Jordan Brand XX8 Days Of Flight: Air Jordan 2009

As we continue on with the Jordan XX8 Days Of Flight, today we look back at the Air Jordan 2009.
The Air Jordan 2009 was originally released in you guessed it, 2009. They were the first Air Jordan signature shoe not numbered but named after the year they released in. Only three colorways were released including a pair made to commemorate Michael Jordan's induction into the Basketball Hall of Fame that year. The Air Jordan 2009 also came in a unique box made specifically for this shoe. Here is what Jordan Brand had to say about the Air Jordan 2009:

"The defensive-minded Air Jordan 2009 rocks Articulated Propulsion Technology to maximize lateral responsiveness. Its pleated-silk upper, metallic mesh ventilation and a sword-slash traction pattern were inspired by the skill and strategy of fencing. Show us your ‘2009s’ on Day 24 of XX8 Days Of Flight."

No Air Jordan 2009s have been retroed to date. However, plenty of sample and promo pairs have been made. None have been available to the public but it has been nice to see new colorways of one of the most popular Air Jordan's to date. There are no Air Jordan 2009 Retro's scheduled to be released anytime soon, especially since it has only been four years since they originally released. If that changes, I will be sure to let everyone know.

For now, enjoy the images below of this sample black and volt green colorway of the Air Jordan 2009 made exclusively to celebrate the Jordan XX8 Days Of Flight Collection.
