Baseball is back in full swing and two new Air Jordan retros drop this weekend to commemorate MJ's brief stint with the Birmingham Barons. The Air Jordan I and IX are both outfitted in a neutral color palette inspired by the Barons' team colors. Sticking true to history, Jordan Brand laced the Is with the "Nike Air" treatment on the tongue, while the IXs feature the number 45 stitched on the heel. If you're looking to own these sneakers, we got you covered with Foot Locker's launch details.
Select Foot Locker and House of Hoops locations will be giving out raffle tickets for both sneakers on Wednesday and Thursday. Winners of the sweepstakes procedure will be notified on Friday and will have the opportunity to purchase the sneakers this Saturday. Simple enough, right? Now, all you have to do is find out if your local Foot Locker or House of Hoops will be receiving the Air Jordan I and IX "Barons" by checking Foot Locker's Launch Locator.
You'll also have another shot at these sneakers when they drop on Footlocker.com at 8 a.m. EST on April 5. Good luck and let's hope you don't strike out.
