The Air Jordan IX “Statue” edition is inspired by the Air Jordan “The Spirit” statue that stands outside the United Center in Chicago. The dark militia green on this colorway of the Air Jordan IX pays homage to a more realistic view of the actual color used on the statue. The “Statue” edition of the Air Jordan IX comes in an all-new white, black and militia green colorway that features a white-based leather upper with black and green accents, finished off by a speckled midsole. What makes the Air Jordan IX even more special is that MJ never played in these shoese as a Chicago Bull. The Air Jordan IX also happens to be the shoe that was chosen to be bronzed onto MJ’s statue.
