Are you chomping at the bit for a pair of shoes that aren’t boots this time of year? 2009′s Air Jordan have an ethereal glow, an interesting ridged upper, and carefully molded soles that make them completely killer. Not only is there a “zoom air bag” to cushion the toe box, but there’s individualized blown glass-inspired detailing that makes each pair of shoes unique. Satin pleating and stitching in rows of 2 and 3 page homage to Jordan’s number (subtle is good).

These 2009 kicks will become available on Valentine’s Day (February 14th), and might be a good present… for yourself. Everyone deserves one, right? If you can’t wait that long, a limited release version in black metallic and gold will be available on January 31st, with white following on the aforementioned release date. [nike]
