The Sample Closet: Air Jordan IX Dark Powder Blue

This sample is from the original release of the Jordan IX, and is technically the only OG color to never be retroed. A very similar colorway came through in 2010, but it was a lighter shade of University Blue. The Dark Powder Blue IX ties back to MJ’s days at UNC, and was also meant to hook to the ’94 NBA All Star game logo. Jordan never played in that All Star game, having left the league to pursue a Major League Baseball career. via Footlocker Unlocked
