The Jordan 9 Calvin Bailey is apart of the Johnny Kilroy collection, a series of Retro 9's inspired by a marketing campaign during Jordan's brief retirement from the Chicago Bulls. The shoes feature an all blue upper with yellow and white accents. Each shoe from the pack is inspired by a different character from the commercial series. This pair is in nearly new condition with hardly any signs of wear.

The Nike Air Jordan Retro 9 is well known for being heavily influenced by Japanese design and culture. The sole of the shoe features several different languages, and the ‘Rising Sun’ Jumpman logo is featured solely on this model. Among the languages written on the soles are Swahili, Russian, German, Italian, French and Spanish. These languages were meant to embody the fact that Michael Jordan had arguably become the world’s first global sports superstar. The shoe features a simple silhouette complete with full leather uppers, a sleek mesh tongue and painted mids. Another feature unique to this sneaker is the lacing system, which became known as one pull lacing, due to the fact you can tighten the entire shoe by pulling the laces up. Previous models required you to tighten from the bottom up. The sneaker has been released in both mid and low top variations after originally hitting the shelves in 1993 with a total of four original mid cut models.
