The Air Jordan 9 was released in 1993 shortly following the announcement of Jordan’s retirement.

On October 6th 1993, Jordan gave the basketball world a shock when he announced his retirement from the NBA. This was just one day before training camp and it was not what anyone had expected at this time. The greatest basketball player of all time retiring at the age of 30. A decision probably affected by the fact that his father was murdered in North Carolina in the summer of 1993 just before he won his third championship.

Right shoe:

libert?? (french) – freedom
anmutig (german) – gracefulLeft shoe:

athletisch (german) – athletic
muundaji (swahili) – ?????

Cleated Air Jordans

As Michael had placed the basketball on the curb he decided to take on the game of baseball. A special cleated version of the IX’s was made and helped him in his Birmingham Barons baseball career.

The Air Jordan’s had not disappeared from the courts though. Known as player samples there were Air Jordan IX’s being produced with not only #23 on the back, but with individual numbers for players such as Kendall Gill (#13), and Mitch Richmond (#2).

There are rumors of the Air Jordan 9 releasing in 2008. Check out Air Jordan Release Dates page. More info on Air Jordan 9, Air Jordan IX.
