Sneaker Focus: Air Jordan IX "Space Jam" Retro OG

Looney Tunes are dropping in the Toon!

Sneakerheads will want to pay close attention to this release. Nike are celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the cult classic film Space Jam. They are doing this in an amazing fashion by releasing the iconic Air Jordan 9 “Space Jam” iteration which first featured in the film. Did you ever watch Space Jam? If you are a 90’s kid, then you probably did. But, for those of you who haven’t, its essentially a classic film where Michael Jordan plays basketball with Bugs Bunny & other Looney Tunes characters forming the "Toon Squad" to go up against the ruthless “Monstars” who are wanting to take over the Looney Tunes world. 

The Jordan's were featured in the film several times, firstly in Michael Jordan’s trophy room when Bugs Bunny goes to collect the sneaks from his crib and also when MJ is practicing for the final game against the Monstars. 

The iconic colour-way features a clean white tumbled leather upper which provides both strength and durability, the white colour-way extends onto the tongue and outsole. Which is segmented by a black midsole & a glistening mudguard which extends to the collar of the sneaker and around the back of the heel. Red accents are featured throughout the sneakers on the branding of the heel, tongue and Jumpman on the midsole, this iteration balances out perfectly, from the materials used, to the inscriptions on the soles, creating a beautiful sneaker that has a timeless style.

But thats not all folks! This is just the first drop from the anniversary celebrations as the Jordan XI "Space Jam" are to be released later this month, so make sure to stay "tuned" to Soleheaven's social media and blog for updates.
