Air Jordan 9 “Racer Blue” Offers An Iridescent Take on Penny’s PE

Nov 15, 2019 | Ian Stonebrook |



Nestled between the holiday Air Jordan 11 “Playoff” remastered retro and likely loads of All-Star heat in Chicago could be the Air Jordan 9 “Racer Blue” set for January 2020.

While early Photoshop renderings alluded to patent leather panelling, this pair actually pulls in styling from Penny Hardaway’s unreleased Air Jordan 9 PE but takes a sharp left.

Seen above for the first time, this pair plays with the same Black/Charcoal-White-Royal palette as the pair crafted for Anfernee. However, the charcoal mudguard is reflective in iridescent fashion for a much, much louder look.
