With the hype for sneakers growing rapidly, we are here to organise the chaos with our weekly drop of the top pairs releasing in the coming days. To get us started, we take a look at our
Sneaker of the Week – Air Jordan 9 “Baseball Glove”
Now Michael Jordan short lived baseball career does not even come close to the influence he made on the court, however, Jordan brand always pay homage to his time spent on the field with colourways such as “Barons”. This release is something out of the ordinary in terms of sneakers, as Nike release an experimental design just in time for MLB All-Star weekend.
The theme is clear as daylight, as the upper appears in the same aesthetics as a leather baseball glove. If the colour and materials used does not sum it all up for you, the identical thick crossed stitching should be enough to seal the deal. Although his baseball career is linked to the “Birmingham Barons”, this silhouette pays homage to the number 35 jersey, which is stitched on the heel, he wore at Scottsdale Scorpions.
There is also something interesting about the release as buyers will not know which colourway of the sneaker they will be getting until they have opened it themselves. Each pair will come with the same colour code (MULTI/ MULTI-MULTI) labelled on the box and the pair dubbed “Scorpions” seen above is to be the more limited in comparison to the black “Barons” colourway.
