Several members of the sneaker media, including our own Zac Dubasik, were flown to Chicago by Jordan Brand this week to officially weartest the Air Jordan XX9. The itinerary called for the testing to go down at an undisclosed gym. However, once disclosed, the location was revealed Michael Jordan's personal gym, at his 56,000-square-foot Chicago mansion.

After entering the famous '23' gate, weartesters were led to MJ's gym, where the XX9 and custom uniforms awaited them. Check out some imagery from the event below and stick with us for a full recap, as well as our first impressions of the XX9.
