Last summer, we caught wind of the highly-coveted Air Jordan 9 “Bred,” as news broke out of its impending 2018 release. And now, with a firm drop date now confirmed, now is as good a time as any to take another look at the hoops-turned-lifestyle classic.

Smooth black leather dominates much of the upper construction, with patent leather overlays found along the mudguard — working its way up the heel and collar. “University Red” adds bold contrast, as can be seen in the midsole, heel and tongue branding.

You can find this Jordan Brand model at select carriers come March 10.
