Air Jordan 9 Golf Barons FN6930 001 Release Date

Whenever the number 45 appears on a Jordan product instead of the usual 23, it’s a clear sign that MJ’s baseball days are being referenced. The six-time NBA champion famously took a two-year break from basketball to pursue his passion for baseball. He played for a minor league affiliate of the Chicago White Sox called the Birmingham Barons and wore number 45. During his time with the club, Nike ensured its star athlete could continue to represent the brand in style with a PE edition of the Air Jordan 9, equipped with baseball cleats and the colors of the Barons. Now the shoe is undergoing its third conversion, as the AJ9 “Barons” hits the golf course for the first time in time for spring.

Compared to its predecessor, the Golf version of the ‘Barons’ colorway shares a number of similarities, with the entire upper and mudguards covered in black, allowing the white laces to stand out against the dark background. The number 45 is embroidered on the heels in a gothic font and then again on the black and white pinstriped insoles. For those who prefer an all-black look on the instep, new laces are provided, and finally, Softspikes designed for golf are preferred over molded baseball cleats on the bottom.

Those looking to add the AJ9 Golf “Baron” to their lineup can expect it to release on May 17th via Nike for $230 USD.
