CHICAGO (CBS) — Michael Jordan played his last NBA game 11 years ago this month.

However the Jordan brand lives on.

Almost exactly 11 years after that final game, Jordan revealed the 29th version of his shoe line–the Jordan XX9.

It’s being billed as the lightest and most advanced Jordan shoe ever

The shoe will retail for $225 and will be available in September.

The Air Jordan is the most popular signature basketball shoe in the world. In the U.S. alone, $2.5 billion worth of Air Jordans were sold in 2013, according to ESPN.
