If you’ve got a taste for Retro styling and the Black/Photo Blue we just showed you isn’t cutting it, how about the return of a past classic? The ‘Cool Grey’ installment of the Air Jordan IX is set for a return later this year, which will be preceded by three other Air Jordan IX Retro releases – one being the aforementioned ‘Photo Blue’. This December release is sure to achieve the same ‘Cool Grey’ success like its AJXI counterpart in 2010, so if you’re looking to replenish your collection later this year, look no further than the Air Jordan IX ‘Cool Grey’. A full profile shot awaits you below so take a look and let us know what you think. via alreadyg0tem
Air Jordan IX ‘Cool Grey’
Medium Grey/Cool Grey-White
My retros are beat and they dont fit anymore. This will add to another line to stand in this year for retros. For the love of the game
9 years ago a punk broke into my house and stole these (and others) from my house. I've been going hard ever since then to show them they can't stop me. These mean a whole lot to me.
Finally... now i can officially retire mine from when they first came out in 2002... i was a senior in high school... and now i feel like a dinosaur
Is it the hypebeast in everyone that allows them to like the one shoe that's the size of a snowboard boot? Cmon guys get real the goat didn't even wear these he retired cuz he saw what shoe he had releasing..
nice!! but I may pass, depends how my money is and whether or not I feel like standing in a line that day lol
uhhh no if you know your history these were one of the original cool grey jordans. the 11 being the very first and the 9 following right after.
Totally agree. These suck, especially when you had them before. Just don't look right. Must cop the olives and call it a 9
If any model is going to be considered a boot, I'd have to give it to the XII. 9s are fire. But the only retro IX I like are the 2002 CG. It's hard not to fall in love with the IX if you hold all of the OGs in hand. The quality is.......
"size of a snowboard boot" uhhhh that can be said for a majority of the jordans in the lineup because 8s 9s and 10s are big shoes to begin with and that retirement line was wack.
good luck to you hypbeast! its funny cause everybody was saying they hate these and their probably still alot saying that but bet! after SN post these 1000+times to hyp them up you children and hypbeast are going to be all over them! in the beginning everybody says " pass" "eww ugly" "no cop" and Etc. but after the 1000+post in the end everybody is "copped!" "love them" "need them"SMFH hypbeast and all these 15-20yr old wannabe sneakerheads being followers not liking what they like just what others do...SMH I for one am not copping...cause i get what i like and i doo not like these...never have liked 9s at all! passed on the 2002s and i will pass again..hate 9s the shape is terrible and on feet their ugly as well..but again that's my liking cause i buy what i like..#kill the hype
LOL Hey im just glad there are people on this website that remember a better time... u dusty old fart :)
had the og cool grey ix in h.s....hard to tell from the pic but the sole looks different on these, og sole use to look translucent or something
you stupid pile of donkey crap, i'm 34 , these youngens actually keep the sneaker culture alive. you act like our times we didn't have stupid people. you're judging this new generation by your few bad experiences. i didn't know they let your ass stay on the computer all day long at the senior citizen home. you type the same sh*t every fucking time. you dumb donkey fucker, no one reads your shit after the 4th word. and for god's sake TAKE YOUR MEDICINE
You know I don't hear any of these "15-20yr old wannabe sneakerheads" complaining about anything, but people like you are starting to sound like a damn broken record. Get over it. Whats the idea of releasing a shoe in a retail store if not so people who want to buy it can buy it?
fool take this synopsis bull**** over to the English department don't nobody care to read about your feelings here
Yeah the sole does look a little bit lighter in the new ones but i dont know... maybe its because the ones i have are so old and have darkened over time... but they look great in the pictures
Ha, was thinking the same thing. This was my junior year in college, damn. Must cop. And sole looks a little lighter but shoe is close to dead on.
