Year Released: 1993

In most cases, anything associated with Michael Jordan in terms of colorways, Chicago reigns supreme. With the Air Jordan IX, however, the tasteful placement of Dark Powder Blue, which perfectly matched the North Carolina Tarheels jerseys that Nike released around the same time these dropped back in 1993, takes this colorway to another level. It was the first time that the Jordan signature series ever received the Carolina colors, and even when it returned in 2010. We can't help but think of MJ sitting there in the full uni. GOAT.
