The Air Jordan 9 University Blue is an iconic colorway for the Nike brand that was originally released in 1994.

In order to honor the retro style, the company is re-releasing the sneakers in an updated form, incorporating the same University Blue color that makes it so recognizable. The shoes are sleek with a bright upper that travels through the tongue and laces. This is complemented by a white sole that features a light blue Jumpman logo and a black lining that peaks over the top of the shoe.

The insole contrasts the rest of the colorway with a vibrant red. On the heels of the University Blue sneakers is the Jumpman logo within a globe -- working to symbolize the brand's worldwide celebration. The number 23 appears in white on the same area to honor the basketball legend.
