There was no foolin’ when Sneaker News showed you the 2012 rendition of the ‘French Blue’ Air Jordan IX back on April 2nd.  A 2002 original that foreshadowed the progression we’ve seen from tons of grey/white into grey/white + pop (remember, the first ‘Cool Grey’ Air Jordan XI preceded the ‘French Blue’ Nines by roughly the same amount of time), early previews showed how the signature blue hue had been added to the midsole for an even more colorful approach.  The most recent images to surface had this area in particular leaning toward purple, and now that we see this new grade school preview courtesy of All Day Jr., there’s even more evidence suggesting that on these so-called ‘French Blues’, “everything is purple.”  Does this new shade mean extra swag or would you rather see the color and its blocking remain as on the ’02 original?  Let us know as you’re viewing more shots on the other side and stick with Sneaker News for all of the Air Jordan IX 2012 release dates – remember these are slated to hit this Holiday season!

This is a gs size (GIRLS!) only colorway so stop comparing them to the '02 French Blue 9's! If you wear above a size 7 you won't be able to rock these anyway!!

Judging by the multicolored sockliner and the colorway, I'm guessing these will be a kids colorway

Insta-pass.. Seriously JB? Purple instead of French Blue and wtf is up with the lining and tongue? It's like that Mesh that was on the Royal 10's and mixed with glitter. Glitter on the tongue is a no-no..

CAN PEOPLE PLEASE REVIEW THE PICTURES THAT ARE GIVEN??? FIRST OFF, THESE ARE A SAMPLE, AS YOU CAN TELL BY THE TAG ON THE TONGUE. SECOND OFF, THESE ARE MOST LIKELY GOING TO BE MADE OF KID'S SIZES, SINCE JB WOULDN'T MAKE A PURPLE MESH OUTLINER FOR MEN'S SNEAKERS, AND BECAUSE OF THE BUILD STRUCTURE OF THESE 9S SHOWN, WHERE IS NO SPEED-LACING SYSTEM.

you mean FLINT IX. When did you kids start calling them french blue 9s? Sure the Flint IX had french blue on the tounge and lacelets but they were always called Flints.
