Made for a new generation of Michael Jordan fans, the Air Jordan 9 Retro GS â€˜Fire Redâ€™ brings glossy detailing to the shoe that originally debuted during MJâ€™s first retirement from basketball. The upper combines white stitched leather with contrasting patent leather overlays in Cool Grey. Fire Red accents settle on the molded eyelets, â€˜Air Jordanâ€™ tongue tags, and webbing pull tabs. Lightweight cushioning comes courtesy of a grey polyurethane midsole with an encapsulated Air-sole unit in the heel. Underfoot, the white rubber outsole features graphics and multilingual phrases that reference His Airnessâ€™ emergence as an international icon.
