Paying tribute to the iconic statue of Michael Jordan just outside the United Center arena, the Jordan Brand gears up for another limited release with the launch of the Air Jordan 9 Retro "Statue."

Taking cues from the design of the statue, the Jordan Brand will dress the upcoming Air Jordan 9 in a premium white leather upper that will include hits of black on the tongue, laces, branding and heel tab of the shoe. Featuring a bronze colorway on the side panels, sock liner and midsole, this Air Jordan is significant in the career of MJ as the AJ 9 is the sneaker featured on the feet of Michael Jordan's statue.

Set to drop on Aug. 22 in limited quantities, this Air Jordan 9 "Statue" will retail for a suggested price of $190 at select Jordan brand retailers and
