First debuting on the Air Jordan 11 in 2001, the "Cool Grey" colorway quickly became a fan favorite. Jordan Brand later interpreted that neutral color scheme onto the Air Jordan 9, making the Cool Grey Jordan 9 the only instance in which Michael Jordan himself wore the ninth model in an NBA game. He did so during a pre-season game as a member of the Washington Wizards, adding to the shoe's lore and mystique.

The Cool Grey 9s later released again in 2012, but it's been over a dozen years since this classic colorway has seen the light of day.

All in all, it's shaping up to be an exciting year for Jordan Brand in 2025, with a number of highly anticipated releases on the horizon.
