AJ 2009 HOF - Believe it or not, it’s been almost 10 years since MJ was inducted into the HOF. That experience has been the gif that keeps on giving, producing “that meme” in the press conference ahead of giving a speech where he felt the need to pick on Bryon Russell, and also acknowledging who influenced and pushed him through the years. Enough has been said about that speech and that meme. Let’s talk about the shoe(s). Simply put : Dope or Nope? Hindsight tends to be favorable when looking back on older Jordan’s. How do we feel about this 2009 edition today, 10 years later? An AJ1 was also released as part of a “HOF Pack”, but the masses didn’t care about the AJ1 then because Travis Scott wasn’t born yet. There was also a Six Rings model in the pack. So how did Jordan Brand do as its namesake was inducted into the HOF? Was the HOF pack (AJ1, 2009, and Six Rings) an appropriate release to commemorate? Instead, let’s just ask what SHOULD they have released instead? ______________________________ 📷: Air Jordan 2009 “HOF” - Sz 13 Available now on our site

Cherrywood or Ginger? Shrouded or Un-Shrouded? The XVI was an interesting model, with Patent Leather and leather / Suede based options as well. It’s been about 18 years now, would you like to see either of these return? MJ did play in the Ginger’s as a Wizard, which was (and still is) very surprising. ______________________________ 📷: 2001 AJ XVI - Both pairs are Sz 14 and were just made available on our site.
AJ XV TB - Just like with the XIV, Eastbay randomly popped up with new previously unreleased colorways of the XV in 2000. In addition to these two, there were several other Team Based options. Who remembers seeing these and scratching your head? There were several PE’s made, but only 4 Mids had made it to retail until these showed up. What is your favorite colorway of the XV? ______________________________ 📷: AJ XV “Team Bank” (Eastbay Only). Both are Sz 14 & available now in the Originals / Vintage section on our site.
