Back in August, it was revealed that the “Blackout” would be one of the many colorways of the Air Jordan XX9 that Jordan Brand would be dropping during the 2014 Holiday Season. One of the early December 2014 Jordan release date had been confirmed for the retail debut of this colorway and as per schedule, these new jordans recently hit the shelves. Even though the big-Jumpman iterations of the Air Jordan XX9 have been more popular, there are probably 23 is Back who have already copped this pair or are on thei way get their hands on this black-based colorway.
The “Blackout” is the second colorway of the Air Jordan XX9 to have been released this month, the other being the “Legend Blue” colorway that made its retail debut on December 1. It must be noted that vibrant and vivid sneaker colorways are often favored by and are quite popular amongst sneaker heads, including 23 is Back readers. The Air Jordan XX9 “Blackout” does not take such an approach. In fact, the sneaker is quite monochromatic since it is completely black, with a few traces of white here and there. However, it is this simplicity that makes this colorway stands out.
This sneaker may even remind Jordan heads a bit of the Air Jordan 6 “Black/Infrared” that was released on Black Friday last month. As mentioned, a sinister black hue covers the entire upper of this sneaker, and even though there is elephant printing and piping present throughout, both of them are somewhat camouflaged. Perhaps the only detailing that can be visibly seen is the pure white Jordan branding, including the medium-sized Jumpman on the side and the “JORDAN” that has been spelled out vertically on the heel.
If 23 is Back readers can afford to spend $225 to add another Air Jordan sneaker to their collection, then they can certainly go head and cop this pair now. One of the initially rumored December 2014 Jordan release date associated with this pair was December 6, and the Air Jordan XX9 “Blackout” was indeed released on that date and is now available.
