Air Jordan IX

Released: 1994

Complex says: By 1994, everybody wanted to be “Like Mike.” He was an icon worldwide and what better way to express his fame than his sneaker. Tinker used simple Japanese influence to his Jordan IX design. On the upper heel the Jumpman logo is incorporated in a rising sun, and on both sneakers words that represent Jordan are written in seven different languages. The famous Jordan statue outside of the Bulls arena has Jordan wearing the IX’s.
