INCREDIBLY LIGHT FOR SUPERIOR FLIGHT
The Air Jordan XX9 Men's Basketball Shoe is the lightest Air Jordan performance shoe to date with a reengineered FlightPlate and a one-piece woven upper that moves naturally and comfortably with your foot.
With FlightPlate technology, Nike Zoom fibers flex, fire back and are instantly distributed across your foot, creating a whole-sole sweet spot. The FlightPlate maximizes each movement's energy return and allows more explosive liftoff from anywhere on the floor.
The custom-engineered, breathable textile upper is woven into a single piece, reflecting the expertise and attention to detail of its Italian craftsmanship. This revolutionary weaving process removes all excess weight, pushing lightweight to its limits while delivering a locked-down fit and broken-in comfort.
For dynamic midfoot lockdown, the Air Jordan XX9 features a Flight Web fit system: webbed straps that wrap the foot and integrate with the laces through woven channels in the upper.
- Comfortable lining and abrasion-resistant graphic incorporated into upper weave
- Compression molded Phylon foam in the heel for lightweight impact protection
- Recycled rubber outsole with multidirectional traction for durability
