The Air Jordan 9 Retro ‘Particle Grey’ delivers a neutral colorway of the ‘90s model that originally released during MJ’s first retirement from basketball. The retro silhouette is updated with a breathable black textile upper, secured with speed laces and accented with tonal stitch detailing. A nubuck mudguard in a neutral grey finish wraps around the heel and extends up themid-cut collar. Contrasting hits of crimson land on the sneaker’s branding elements, including an Air Jordan tongue tag and a molded Jumpman emblem at the heel. Lightweight cushioning is provided by a matte grey polyurethane midsole with encapsulated Air-sole units in the forefoot and heel.
