The "Anthracite" Air Jordan 9 is a brand new colorway, meaning that there aren't previous editions to compare it to.
The model deserves such a comparison though, as it's got an original detail that Jordan 9 retros have consistently left out. The sneaker has six molded lace pieces, where Air Jordan 9s in the sneaker's retro era have always had just five, leaving the lowermost one out.
The use of this piece, which also popped up on the "Statue" Jordan 9, is one of the ways in which this silhouette has benefited from the Remastered Air Jordan program.
Watch for the "Anthracite" Air Jordan 9 to arrive on Saturday, Sep. 5 at 10 a.m. EDT for $190 via Nike.
