In December of 2010, Jordan Brand released the Air Jordan XI ‘Cool Grey’ as its final Retro drop of the year, capping off a year’s worth of amazing Retro releases in perfect fashion. This year, the ‘Bred’ XI will hold the position, but will be immediately preceded by the Air Jordan IX ‘Cool Grey’ the weekend before – December 15th to be exact. Last seen in stores in 2002, the Air Jordan IX ‘Cool Grey’ will be the final Holiday 2012 release of the Air Jordan IX, so is Jordan Brand necessarily saving the best AJ9 for last? Go a few months ahead in your planners and circle December 15th for the Cool Grey IX and let us know if these Retros are the best of the years! via scforums
Air Jordan IX
Medium Grey/Cool Grey-White
going to pass ...just coping my breds 11's for xmas and waiting for those 13's and 3s new color ware in January
Was on the fence about these until i found out they were on my B-day. Now im gonna get some B-day bangin AND a new pair of kicks. Life is good.
im debating on getting these or the penny 5 miami colorway. they are both slated for december and idk what my moneys gonna look like then :/ DOPE shoe tho p.s. im 16 so anyone who was gonna say "get your weight up" or something like that please keep it to yourself my parents dont buy my kicks like most teens you see in line and i actually knew about these YEARS ago
I remember when I was in 7th grade when these dropped. finally I can stop searching for a DS 2002 pair in my size. The COOL GREY 9's kill the COOL GREY 11's any day......but that's just what I think. Will be copping early.
Release dates are too close but maybe jb is doing this so that some kids can get lucky with some good jays for Xmas
These are Ugly! the sole looks ugly! the perforations look weird, it just plain looks like a basketball boot!
Ill get these over bred 11 since i have bred 11 from cdp and they still crispy no 23 pealling off and I been wanting them
December 15th huh? So these come out the week before the Breds I'm assuming. Damn, but I gotta get both.
Sorry but passing on em for the olives. Just a little tired of all the cool grey at the moment. just my opinion though.
Why does jb make their release dates so close to each other? These drop 12/15 and xi breds 12/23. Spread them shits out!!! I guess I'ma have to come up bold for some ppl's xmas gifts.....oh well.
i wonder if that sole will be smoke grey like the og, because so far in all the pics they look solid
Not saying anything that know one doesn't know but another really nice Jordan that was zzzz'd on when I was in high school...people said I had cool grey imitations when I rocked these, now they won't stand a chance on shelves!... Death to all beast... I'm copping with that said
Missed these last time so I will try to get em this go 'round but not the best retro of the year tho.
