Air Jordan IX ‘French Blue’ – 2012 Retro
We had already gotten wind of a heap of Air Jordan IX retros hitting this year about a month back, but only now are we figuring out just how deep the rabbit hole goes. One colorway that wasn’t included in that initial batch was the ‘French Blue’ shown here, which appears to be on the way as well, making a resurgence a complete decade after its 2002 debut. Interestingly enough the sneaker seems to have been augmented mostly in the sole area, where blue coats the midsole like never before and a possible glow in the dark effect appears to be in place on the outsole. Hit the jump for the full shot and let us know where you rank these amongst all the other Air Jordan IX’s on their way for 2012. Photos: kingcharles on SC forums
Ah these were my first pair of J's. Wouldn't want to ever take them off. Of course I was young and dumb and didnt take care of them which is why the got tossed in the trash just 6 months after having them. Definitely getting these and keeping them mint(for the most part).
YALL NICCAS CRAZY THESE SHIT GON BE A FUKKIN PROBLEM THE BOTTOM LOOK AS IF ITS GONNA GLOW THEY DID A GREAT JOB AND I CANT WAIT
the flint 9s, were my favorite 9s cw. JB can kiss my @$$. if these same shoes release. i'll pass on them for sure.
Just ruined a phenomenal colorway.... ive got the original french blues from.2002, i guess i better keep them alive.a little longer.....
Is that a mesh sock liner?? GS version? Im sure these are just a sample tho. I think they will release something closer to the '02 version when all is said and done.
............. UMMMM Right. Not really feelin these. hopefully just samples that stay just that. SAMPLES.
These flint 9's are my favorite 9's.........I need these to come back out with no JB alterations...........Nike please keep it original...............but this year is just crazy for shoes.
I will for sure be passing if they look like that!!!!! Nothing close to the 1st release, the midsole is flint not blue.. the 23 is blue, not white and the pull tab is flint, not blue... And the tounge looks funny.
Are these supposed to be flints? Smfh please change the midsole. Jordan Brand fuckin up with these 9s so far. The whole shape and look to em
Everyone's loves a GITD shoe, lets just make every shoe glow so we can create more hype beasts!! YAY!!
All retros look different from the ogs, they are suppose too. No retro returns in original form so please stop with these posts, it gets the people nagging about nothing
