Air Jordan 9 “Photo Blue” has it’s own unique story. It was originally planned to be made with black sole, and due to confusion on the factory, more than 10000 pairs were made with white sole. It surely will have a page in the sneakers history, thanks to this incident. Shoe also features black leather and black nubuck, with photo blue accents on lace loops, stitching, and lining.
The original Air Jordan IX was produced in 1993, designed by Tinker Hatfield. The design was oriented on Michael’s absence in the NBA world. So happens, Jordan never wore them to the basketball court when they were just released. The Air Jordan IX were the shoes that were put on Jordan's feet on his statue in Chicago, Illinois. In the children's movie The Little Rascals, Butch, who was one of the bullies, is wearing a pair of Jordans 9. Tupac Shakur, famous rapper, wore Air Jordan's in a "Thug Life", popular photoset in 1993.
