The latest shoe in the Air Jordan signature line was officially unveiled earlier today in New York. Michael Jordan’s 29th signature sneaker, the Air Jordan XX9, is the first performance-based shoe to feature a woven-constructed upper.

“This shoe (the Air Jordan XX9) fits the foot better than any other shoe we’ve created,” said Mark Smith, Jordan Brand’s Global Creative Director, who was on hand along with other notables of the brand, such as Tinker Hatfield (Vice President of Creative Concepts), Larry Miller (Jordan Brand President) and Michael Jordan himself.

Los Angeles Lakers guard Nick Young has undoubtedly dominated our Kicks On Court column this year. Over the past couple of weeks, Young has worn a mixture of highly sought-after sneakers, like the Supreme x Nike Air Foamposite One, and rarely-seen shoes, such as the “Wheat” Nike Air Zoom Generation.

In last night’s home finale for the Lakers, Swaggy P took to the court in the 2012-released “Galaxy” Nike Air Foamposite One. This marks the third time we’ve seen the Galaxy Foams on an NBA court; both Rajon Rondo and Penny Hardaway laced them up during 2012 NBA All-Star Weekend, and Delonte West wore them against Miami during the 2011-2012 NBA season.

Two of the top Kicks On Court Champion nominees, Nick Young and P.J. Tucker, continue to debut new footwear and bring out rarely-seen retros even as the NBA season winds down. Last night, both players wore headline-worthy sneakers in their respective losses to the San Antonio Spurs and the Golden State Warriors. P.J. Tucker, an avid wearer of Kobe Bryant’s latest signature shoes, debuted a Court Purple-based Nike Kobe 9 EM, which also feature yellow eyelets and white accents in the form of the Nike/Kobe branding and outsole. Tucker stated that this isn’t the last of his Kobe debuts, as he has plans on debuting the Nike Kobe 9 Elite Low HTM before the regular season ends or in the playoffs should the Suns make the cut.
As for Nick Young, just one week after sporting the “Wheat” Nike Air Zoom Generation, Swaggy P opted to bring out the “Wheat” Air Jordan 13, his second wear of the Air Jordan 13 this season (he wore the Air Jordan 13 Low White/Black-Varsity Maize at the end of January).

Just one month after debuting the “Powder Blue” Air Jordan 10 retro on court, we spot Dallas Mavericks guard Monta Ellis in another new colorway of MJ’s ninth signature shoe. Ellis took to the court in the recently released “Barons” Air Jordan 9, which matched rather nicely with the Mavericks’ home uniforms. Inspired by the time when Jordan left the game of basketball for the baseball diamond, the “Birmingham Barons” Air Jordan 9s feature the exact color scheme of the uniforms worn by the aforementioned minor league ball club. In addition to the 9, Jordan Brand also released a Barons-inspired Air Jordan 1 this past Saturday.
