Air Jordan 2009 - Beyond
Michael Jordan used every means at his disposal to win, including playing in the best shoes ever made.
The Air Jordan 2009 takes this tradition further than ever before to give you an advantage that can only be called... unfair.
Articulated Propulsion Technology is an advanced energy-return system developed by Jordan for responsiveness that will revolutionize your game.
Inspired by MJ's extraordinary defensive focus, the Air Jordan looks like no shoe ever made because it performs that way.
With truly superior design and technology at your feet, the Air Jordan 2009 is ready to take you to one place - Beyond.
Air Jordan 2009 Technology
Articulated forefoot Zoom Air moves with your foot to provide toe-curling comfort without sacrificing superior court feel
Soft, impact-absorbing Phylon provides a cloud-like layer of midsole cushioning
The AJXX3-inspired TPU chassis not only delivers advanced foot protection, but every shoe features its own unique pattern inspired by contemporary glass sculpture
The carbon fiber arch plate provides superior support and reduces fatigue, while working in concert with the performance-enhancing heel design
Carbon-fiber reinforced Articulated Propulsion Technology cushioning returns your energy, while the split-heel keeps one side of the shoe in constant court contact for lightning-quick lateral movement
Engineered outsole grooves flex naturally for remarkable traction and the multi-directional herringbone pattern grips the hardwood for fierce cuts and blow-by moves
Air Jordan 2009 Features
Articulated Propulsion Technology (APT)
Looking for an edge? Jordan's groundbreaking new APT (Articulated Propulsion Technology) gives you a split-second advantage by maximizing surface traction and returning energy so you can change direction and explode at a moment's notice.
The sleek satin upper is pleated for increased durability, greater ventilation and a secure lookdown fit. The upper's light-weight design contours your foot for unheard of responsiveness and maximum support.
Jordan's second-ever 'Considered' shoe is good for the environment as well as your game thanks to its low-waste design, water-based solvent construction, use of repurposed elements like ReGrind rubber and employment of Environmentally Preferred Materials, such bamboo in the laces and lining
Art of Defense
MJ was one of the best defensive players ever because of his ability to control opponents through spacing, contact and willpower. The ultra-responsive AJ2009 has been built from the ground up to let you too master the Art of Defense.
World-class fencers display a level of skill, strategy and athleticism seen in few other sports. As a result the AJ2009 features a pleated-silk upper, metallic mesh breathability ports and a sword-slash traction pattern inspired by fencing.
The AJ2009' s design is influenced by the groundbreaking AJI and its use of panache leather revisits the formal style of the AJXI. "Greatest there ever was" and "Greatest there ever will be" inscribed on each heel leave no doubt as to whose shoe this is.
MJ's sophisticated tastes are reflected in the European-style reinforced stitching and diamond Jumpman hologram. Details like the tactile heel pull dots, luxurious Zoom Air sockliner and first-ever clear outsole pods are icing on the cake.
