Dream It, Do It: Jordan Brand goes back to the 90s for their latest Flight Nostalgia piece
When it comes to all-time favorite Js, most Jordan heads would gravitate to the pairs MJ actually wore. The Air Jordan IX was a little tricky. Technically, MJ wore the shoe, it just so happened it had cleats on them, as he wore them when he was with the Birmingham Barons. But more than anything, MJ and Tinker loved the IX as it was inspired by the GOAT’s trip to Japan, thus producing this minimalist masterpiece. As the shoe was born in the 90s, it made perfect sense to bring back the “Dream It, Do It” slogan MJ used back in the day.
The 90s retro aesthetic is clearly seen on the IX, with the bold colors and inverse color blocking on the heel. The embroidered “23” on the back are done in Chicago and Charlotte’s colors, two cities where MJ definitely left a mark. The multicolor sneaker definitely pops out and the “Dream It, Do It” graphic from the 90s is stitched on to the shoe’s tongue for perfect measure.
The Air Jordan IX Retro ‘Flight Nostalgia’ drops today, March 9th, at Titan and select Jordan stockists. The shoe retails for Php 9,445.
