To go along with the Black-edition of the Air Jordan 9, Jordan Brand will also be releasing an Air Jordan 9 Brown Leather pair. Both colorways are inspired by the baseball gloves Michael Jordan wore during his short-lived baseball career playing for the Birmingham Barons.
Each pair comes constructed in premium leather uppers with baseball glove-inspired woven lacing on the side panels. Michael Jordan’s baseball number “45” is embroidered on the heels.
According to Pinoe77, both Air Jordan 9s will come wrapped in plastic. Apparently you won’t know which pair you’ll be getting until you open it – similar to opening up baseball cards. The exact details to the release have yet to be confirmed, but this is the latest on the Air Jordan 9 Baseball Glove Pack.
Take a first look at the “Brown Leather” pair below and let us know what you guys think in the comments section. We’ll keep you updated with the latest as it develops.
UPDATE: It looks like the Air Jordan 9 Baseball Glove in Brown Leather will be a tribute to Michael Jordan’s time spent with the Scottsdale Scorpions of the Arizona Fall League in 1994. As a nod to the squad, the shoe will come with the number “35” on the heels, which was the jersey number he wore with the team.
