Air Jordan IX Pinnacle celebrates MJ’s love for Baseball

Michael Jordan’s big league dreams are well documented. In 1994, he returned to the diamond to chase a childhood dream — an effort reminiscent of MJ’s relentless pursuit of greatness regardless of what obstacles lay ahead.

Honoring MJ’s love for America’s pastime and #jordan Brand’s legacy in professional #baseball, the #air #jordan #ixpinnacle pack is built with a specially made leather designed to mimic #baseball mitts. Each pair comes in packaging inspired by #baseball cards that leaves the colorway (either Black/Metgold-white or Hazelnut/Sail) a mystery until after opening. The two versions pay tribute to Jordan’s minor league stints in Birmingham, Ala., and Scottsdale, Ariz., by featuring his numbers, #45 and #35, respectively, on the heels. Two #baseball jerseys and hats complement the release.
The collection also celebrates the brand’s two-decades-long relationship with professional #baseball. #jordan Brand officially established its presence with the signing of superstar shortstop Derek Jeter in 1999. Since then, the brand has continued to inspire new generations of #baseball players, which includes the following active roster:
  • CC Sabathia

  • David Price

  • Dellin Betances

  • Dexter Fowler

  • Gio Gonzalez

  • Kenley Jansen

  • Manny Machado

  • Marcus Stroman

  • Mookie Betts
