We will never forget the year, seven months and 15 days Michael Jordan spent away from the hardwood during his run on the diamond. Jordan Brand can’t forget the G.O.A.T.’s stint either, and those 592 days are officially commemorated with the Air Jordan 9 seen in “Birmingham Barons” digs. White synthetic leather lends itself well to the upper of the sneaker, which is encircled by wolf grey, with black streaking down the middle on the tongue and also hitting up the midsole. The “Birmingham Barons” Air Jordan 9 will be available at Nike.com and other Jordan Brand retailers, including the Nice Kicks Shop, this Saturday April 5 for $170.

The greatest basketball player of all time has his signature sneaker outfitted with the diamond in mind with the new Air Jordan 9 “Birmingham Barons”. Imagine LeBron James leading the Heat to a three-peat this season and then retiring from the game this summer to play baseball. That’s exactly what Michael Jordan did after the 1993 season, when he abruptly stepped away from basketball to test his skills on the diamond. MJ’s baseball career was short lived, but fully documented, and the latest retro from his signature line further adds to the coverage. 20 years after Mike was swinging a bat for the Chicago White Sox’ minor league affiliate Birmingham Barons, JB brings the Air Jordan 9 that he wore on the diamond to the streets, dressed in the team’s colors. A white and grey base is contrasted with black on the tongue and midsole, detailed with the Baron’s pinstripes on the inner lining and MJ’s baseball number 45 on the heels. Tell us your first thoughts on these homage paying retros in the comment space below, and pencil in this AJ 9′s first pitch for April 5th.
