Earlier in the month, it was reported that the two upcoming Air Jordan XX9 sneakers would be releasing on September 3 (Black/White) and September 13 (Team Orange). Although these launch dates were never officially announced by Jordan Brand, it looks like there's a slight change in plans.
Jordan Brand has confirmed to SLAM that the release date for both Air Jordan XX9s is Saturday, September 6.
Before the launch, Jordan Brand plans to allow ballers to wear-test the sneakers through several events across the country during the summer, leading up to the fall release.
Brian O’Connor, VP Global Brand Jordan Marketing, recently told SLAM, "Before consumers can buy the shoe on September 6, we wanted to create opportunities for them to try the shoe, and experience firsthand what it’s like to take flight in the Air Jordan XX9.”
Retail price for both models is $225 and will be available on Nike.com and select Jordan Brand retailers.
