Year: 2009
Lead Designer: Jason Mayden

An Air Jordan inspired by fencing - no matter the result, it wasn't going to be typical. Jason Mayden used unique materials to craft his unique vision, with sharply creased silk on the upper and blown "glass" in the midsole. Much of the technology was new too, with a proper stacked heel giving the shoe an even more formal look. Reactions were decidedly mixed, and virtually none of the 2009's genes were passed down to the 2010.
