Air Jordan 1 x XX9 “MTM”

The debut MTM collection honors the groundbreaking moment when the Air Jordan I first launched in 1985. Exploring 30 years of Jumpman heritage, the collaboration plays for the present with an upper created from Flyweave; a lightweight, one-piece construction with intricate pattern work that maintains the essence of iconic silhouette.

Whoo, more heat (or coldness) from Air Jordan x Nike Lab. If you’re lucky enough to be in Paris tomorrow, you can be the first to cop the “MTM” AJI x XX9 collection. It’ll be available soon to select Nike Lab retailers, with the raffle for tomorrow at jordan.com/paris.

Air Jordan XX9 Release Date

Jordan Brand confirmed to SLAM today that the release date for both Air Jordan XX9 colorways (above and below) is Saturday, September 6.

The cool part about the launch is that Jordan Brand will allow prospective customers to wear-test the sneakers at to be announced events across the country this summer.

Says Brian O’Connor, VP Global Brand Jordan Marketing, “Before consumers can buy the shoe on September 6, we wanted to create opportunities for them to try the shoe, and experience firsthand what it’s like to take flight in the Air Jordan XX9.”

Look out for these events this summer (no doubt they’ll have one in Chicago) and start saving up the $225 now.
