Official Images // Air Jordan 9 “University Gold”
Another day, another Air Jordan leak for 2021; This time around its a new colorway for Michael’s ninth signature sneaker, a “University Gold” Air Jordan 9.
Don’t be confused by its golden-yellow moniker, because the pair will be arriving based in Black and Dark Charcoal, with only select University Gold accents throughout. However, at this early stage, first looks and information on both its blocking and construction are a mystery. As always, we’ve provided a speculative mock-up for the release to give you a ballpark idea of what to expect early next year.
Here, we’re imagining a nubuck upper with charcoal nubuck overlays, blacked-out sole units, and University Gold accents at the tongue, heel, and outsole, resulting in some heavy mid-90s Batman vibes — but you should expect the actual release to differ, hopefully not by too much.
Update 11.16.20 // As part of Jordan Brand’s unveiling of their Spring 2021 collection, official imagery — and also a first look — at the Air Jordan 9 “University Gold” have arrived. While it does boast a very close likeness to our original speculative mock-up design further below, it does arrive with some noticeable changes; a striking yellow sock liner, black midsoles, and alterations to the rear embroidery and badge. Grab a detailed look at the pair in question further below, and be sure to keep your eyes locked on our official Twitter account for further updates as we edge closer to their release in Men’s and Kids sizing on January 30th.
