Throughout 2014, a wide range of color schemes and themes have been introduced by Jordan Brand. The “Infrared 23” theme is one of them and it has apparently been one of Jordan Brand’s favorites. Back in February, the Air Jordan 6 was dressed up in this striking hue and it also makes an appearance on the Air Jordan 6 Retro “Black/Infrared 23,” which 23isBack readers will be able to cop on Black Friday. However, one of the 2014 Jordan release dates that is about to arrive also marks the release of an “Infrared 23” iteration of the Air Jordan XX9.
Recently at the Jordan Brand Fall launch event, a plethora of new colorways of the Air Jordan XX9 had been introduced, and the most vivid pair amongst them was this Air Jordan XX9 “Infrared 23.” The “Infrared 23” color scheme has always been one of the more popular Air Jordan colorways, one that many Jordan heads, including 23 is Back readers, eagerly wish to cop. So it makes sense that Jordan Brand has scheduled the release of the Air Jordan XX9 “Infrared 23” right after the retail debut of the Air Jordan 6 Retro “Infrared,” which also features infrared 23 accents.
The entire upper of this Jordan Brand performance sneaker is decked out in the Infrared 23 hue with the barely visible elephant print, which is somewhat camouflaged within the color scheme. Some contrast is added by the new jordans by the black inner lining, laces and midsole as well as the large white Jordan Jumpan on the side and the large “23” branding on the tongue. As for the outsole, it is also in Infrared 23.
If 23isBack readers are planning to head out for sneaker shopping on Black Friday, they would probably not want to spend too much. Although Black Friday marks one of the most important 2014 Jordan release dates, the Air Jordan XX9 “Infrared 23” hits the shelves the very next day on November 29, with a retail price of $225.
