The Air Jordan 9 returns to retailers this Saturday, March 10, in a predominately black colorway that has surprisingly never released before. 

The "Bred" Air Jordan 9, inspired by PEs worn by Jason Kidd and Eddie Jones back in 2002 (H/T Sole Collector), comes equipped with a smooth black leather upper, accompanied by black patent leather overlays and university red branding on the tongue, heel and midsole. The kicks are grounded by an anthracite outsole which completes the stealthy look. 

All major retailers, including Nike.com, Eastbay, Champs Sports, Footaction, Foot Locker, Finish Line and most other local sneaker shops, will have the kicks in stock this Saturday, March 10th, in both men's and kid's sizes. The shoes will retail for $190.

If you're digging the all-black motif but the Air Jordan 9 silhouette isn't quite your style, be on the lookout for the "Blackout" Air Jordan 11 which is rumored to drop in late May for the first time ever. Click here for more details on that much anticipated release.
