The Air Jordan 9 will forever be remembered as a model that Michael Jordan didn't lace up as a Chicago Bull, but an upcoming new colorway would have fit perfectly on the United Center hardwood.

Starting with a white leather base, the retro features "Gym Red" patent leather overlays that fall in line with the model's early 2000s run. The Chicago-inspired palette is completed by black hits on the tongue, eyelets, heel and various branding hits.

The "Gym Red" Air Jordan 9 is currently set to release on Oct. 5 for $190.

UPDATE (09/23): With the release of the "Gym Red" Air Jordan 9 just a few weeks away, stock images have surfaced courtesy of Foot Locker.
