First Looks at the Air Jordan 9 “Racer Blue”
First looks at 2020’s Air Jordan 9 “Racer Blue” have anded — and we’re sorry to break the news, but these aren’t actually based off a previous Air Jordan 9 sample as first thought. They are different, though, which is what people have been crying out for. First looks at the pair, shared earlier today by @upcycle.sneakers show a black nubuck base paired with matching black midsoles, liners and heel pulls, white outsole and a very familiar reflective trim. Perhaps leftovers from the Air Jordan 1 Zoom Air? Definitely. Capping off the design are hits of Racer Blue on the heel and midsole.
Take a peep at the first looks below, which is tentatively scheduled for February 1st in men’s and GS sizing — and tell us on our social channels if you would have preferred our sample-based mockup or the retail pair!

Info leaked by @coley2xs and @zSneakerheadz suggest a black-based pair, sporting Racer Blue overlays paired with white branding. Of course, this early out from release means that there are no first looks just yet, so we’ve whipped up a Photoshop render to give you a pretty good idea of what to expect this January. As for release specifics, you’ll have to stay tuned, so keep your eyes locked right here on HOUSE OF HEAT.
