Retro 9 OG (AKA

Celebrating Jordan Brand’s 20th Anniversary of Space Jam, the Air Jordan 9 that appeared in the film will be part of the celebration.

Dressed in the original White, Black and True Red color scheme. This Air Jordan 9 features a White-based upper with Black overlay and Red contrasting accents. 

Confused as to why the Air Jordan 9, coming back in its most iconic look of white, black, and red, is being referred to as the Air Jordan 9 “Space Jam”? Jordan Brand is pushing the Space Jam Jordan 11 as the retro of choice for their upcoming Holiday 2016 release slate thanks to the iconic film’s 20th-anniversary celebration. But there was another pair that received quite a bit of the spotlight during Michael Jordan’s preparation to get back into basketball shape to help the Looney Tunes defeat the Monstars.

Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny would have to go to Michael’s house to get a pair of the classic Air Jordan 9 OG in white and black from MJ’s trophy room as well as a pair of MJ’s college warm-up shorts for good luck. A subsequent training montage would ensue featuring the pair followed by the decision to lace up the Space Jam 11s during the actual game. So there you have it – the shoes are certainly part of the Space Jam fabric, but to refer to these as the “Space Jam” is definitely a first.
