No one reading this can deny that Michael Jordan made an everlasting impact on the sport of basketball. After rising to fame in his home city of Chicago, His Airness proved his dominance in the landscape of basketball all over the globe. The long awaited air jordan release dates 2015 of the Air Jordan 9 “Anthracite,” which can be regarded as an all-in-one symbol of MJ’s dominance, is finally approaching. This weekend will mark the retail debut of this Air Jordan 9 Retro colorway and it is being speculated it will be among the best-selling sneakers in the coming days.
It was back in May when photos of the Air Jordan 9 Retro “Anthracite” first popped up and many sneakers were quick to spot the resemblance between this colorway and the Air Jordan 9 “Oregon PE.” Of course, getting their hands on the latter was out of the question since it was exclusively designed for athletes of the University of Oregon, so this “Anthracite” rendition serves as a suitable alternative. Perhaps the major feature that sets the Air Jordan 9 “Anthracite” from the “Oregon PE” is that instead of an “O,” a black Jordan Jumpman is stitched on the heel.
This “Anthracite” colorway of the Air Jordan 9 consists of a nubuck upper that is dressed up in dark grey, while it also features black laces and lining, and white lace eyelets. One particularly unique thing about this Air Jordan 9 Retro iteration is that it is equipped with a popular molded lace loop, which was absent from previous Air Jordan retro sneakers. Moreover, the midsole of this sneaker is also covered in black, while an anthracite-colored outsole adds the finishing touch. As mentioned, the heel area features “23” stitching and the outsole sports white Jordan Jumpman logos.
Sneakerheads who had been yearning to get their hands on the Air Jordan 9 “Oregon PE” have likely been eagerly awaiting the Jordan release 2015 of the Air Jordan 9 “Anthracite.” Well, now they only need to wait a little while longer because the Air Jordan 9 “Anthracite” will hit the shelves on September 19th, 2015.
