Air Jordan IX Pinnacle celebrates MJ’s love for Baseball

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

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
