Not so long ago, photos of the Air Jordan 9 “Militia Green” had surfaced on the Internet alongside rumors that the sneaker would arrive at retailers somewhere in August. As the Air Jordan 7 has not made as many appearances this year as Jordan Brand’s other signature models, but the “Militia Green” is not the only upcoming colorway of the model. Before this year comes to an end, an “Anthracite” colorway of the Air Jordan 9 will also hit the shelves and one of the Jordan release dates 2015 has already been confirmed for its retail debut.
As Jordanheads probably already know, the Air Jordan 9 is amongst the models that were scheduled to receive the remastered treatment in 2015. Admirers of the Oregon Ducks might actually find this upcoming Air Jordan 9 “Anthracite” slightly familiar. A few years ago, a PE iteration that resembles this “Anthracite” colorway was given to the football team that hails from Eugene, Oregon. Many collectors had likely been hoping to get their hands on that PE and while that sneaker never hit the shelves, they will get a chance to grab this all-Black Jordan 9 Retro once it releases. Sneakerheads should keep their mind that along with this, the “Militia Green” and the “Statue” colorway of the Air Jordan 9 are also on their way to make their retail debuts. In fact, Jordan Brand is probably working on several other renditions too.
As can be clearly seen in the latest photos of the sneaker, this “Anthracite” pair features an ominous palette with a nubuck and suede upper that is dressed up entirely in Black. Moreover, inner lining, laces, sole unit and tongue are covered in tonal Black, while contrasting traces of white can be found in the form of the eyelets, miniature Jumpman logo on the sole and the tongue tab. Instead of the “O” representing the Oregon Ducks, as in the case of their PE sneaker, the heel has a white “23” embroidered on it.
Jordan Brand’s ninth signature model will be inheriting several new colorways later this year with the Fall 2015 Jordan release dates 2015 slated to mark the retail debut of AJ 9s. One of them will be this Air Jordan 9 “Anthracite,” which will arrive at retailers on September 7th and will be up for grabs at a price of $190.
