Baseball is officially back this week, and Jordan Brand is celebrating with a special retro release paying homage to MJ’s time playing America’s pastime. Growing up, MJ spent as much time on the diamond as he did on the blacktop before choosing basketball as his focus. A nod to the sport he loved as a kid—and eventually played as an adult—the Air Jordan 9 Retro “Barons” takes inspiration from his baseball career, with a “45″ stitched on the back heel instead of the usual “23,” plus an inner lining accented by pinstripes. If you’re interested in copping a pair this weekend check out our release details below.
