Air Jordan 9 'Fire Red' Revealed!
Release: 5 November 2022

Style Code: CT8019-162

The Air Jordan 9 was the only 'early' (AKA Air Jordan 1-Air Jordan 14) model that Michael Jordan never wore on an NBA court, as when it released in 1993 he was off playing baseball. Nevertheless, the Tinker Hatfield-designed sneaker has become an important part of the Jordan Brand legacy, and a new 'Fire Red' colourway is set to drop later this year.

Revealed by @chriscolgan, the Air Jordan 9 'Fire Red' offers a sporty colour scheme that relegates its eponymous hue to third in the colourblocking scheme. The majority of the upper is composed of crisp white leather, while 'Cool Grey' appears on the patent leather mudguards, nubuck heel overlays, familiar toothed midsole, collar and tongue. These would probably be dubbed 'Cool Grey' if it wasn't for the Air Jordan of the same name that debuted in 2002 and was released again in 2012!

Though the 'Fire Red' hue that gives this shoe its name is used somewhat scarcely, it makes its presence felt when it does appear. Spread across the branded hits, heel tabs and eyestays, it adds a puch of hot detailing to the otherwise subtly coloured design. Familiar multilingual outsoles round off the look.

Jordan Brand has yet to offer official release confirmation for the Air Jordan 9 'Fire Red' at the time of writing, but early reports have it releasing as part of the Jumpman's Fall 2022 Air Jordan retro collection It's set to touch down on November 5, and will retail for $200 when it does.
