The Air Jordan 9 University Blue is a new colorway featuring OG style colorblocking that invokes all the nostalgia from rewatching Space Jam again and again on the family VCR. Releasing on December 5, 2020, the Jordan 9 University Blue also features glitter embedded into the black rand that snakes down the heel and along both sides of the shoe. And as a final chef’s kiss, the UNC heritage really pops.
Does Chris prefer this Jordan 9 over the Air Jordan 11 Jubilee releasing a week later on December 12th? Find out by pressing play on the video above.

In the video, Chris provides detailed information from all the usual categories, providing the in depth information you need. He supplies expert level opinions on the materials, cushioning, traction, support, and fit. Here’s some of what he discusses:
- Possible inspirations
- When Michael Jordan wore the Jordan 9 on court
- MJ’s university blue shorts
- The international details
- Jordan cleats
- OG Style colorblocking
- Speedlacing system
- Internal bootie
- Backwards facing Jumpman (ugh!)
- Sizing recommendations
As an added bonus, Mrs. Wing asks why the Jordan design team abandoned the idea of showing off visible Air from the Jordan 7 through the Jordan 15. Why do you think they stopped?
