Unless your name is Penny Hardaway you’ve probably never had a chance at picking up an Air Jordan IX with the straight black blue look. Fortunately for us common folk the chance is on the horizon, as Jordan Brand is prepping this pair, the Air Jordan IX ‘Photo Blue’, for a release come November amongst a strong crop of other pairs from the same silhouette. Can it win some fans as a neophyte amongst established colorways like the ‘Olive’ that it will be sharing shelf space with? Let us know what you think after you hit the jump for the extra view of the Air Jordan IX ‘Photo Blue’. Photos: alldayatf
Air Jordan IX
Too bad they come out on November. Thats the month bred4s will be released and a moth before bred11s will be released. Too much good releases.
I dont like the way they constructed the colors they keep on screwing up the 9s and other retros with the white bottom
They look clean, but only thing about it is that they probably won't sell because the "Bred" 4's are coming out on November too.
the blue stitching make these look horrible, makes it look fake imo...and nike knows damn well no one is gonna call these photo blue 9's, more like the space jam 9's
I'm liking these!! I think they'll look real nice on foot. I hope all these haters stay away and I can just stroll right in and grab without a hassel! But I doubt it, All that crap talk and then they'll all be lined up right next to me....Oh well.
I like all 5 cw's that are releasing this year. Probably want the Cool Greys the most though. I'll be happy if i can get 2 out of 5.
Ill be ok with the photo blue stitching if they just get rid of the photo blue eyelets and make them solid black. Think they would look much cleaner like that.
Thought they were suppose to look like the Penny Hardaway PE 9s. These look like some damn fakes. The contrast stitching was a horrible idea. Thanks a lot JB
they look like the citrus 9s but just in this colorway, don't know why you guys saying it looks like a fake
I'm diggin' the blue as an accent color, but that blue contrast stitching is making these feel like a pair of variants..I think the stitching is just too much blue..And I hate to say anything bad about a IX because it's my 2nd favorite model of J's..
Retro 9 "Space Jam", but this pic looks a lot better than the very first. Even with the contrast stitching (why?), they still look good. I might cop when they're released.
These are ok. Nothing I wouldn't cop at the outlet. I want them to bring the Charcoal Penny Hardaway PE back!
Haha, I'm the opposite. I think they'd look better with the blue eyelets and without the contrast stitching.
