Yesterday evening, Sneaker News filled you in on the release date of the Air Jordan IX ‘Cool Grey’, confirmed for the weekend just before the drop of the Air Jordan XI ‘Bred’. Looks like another confirmed Air Jordan IX, the OG ‘Olive’ colorway, will precede another big-ticket ‘Bred’ item as the Olive IXs are slated for a November 17th release. If anyone can recall, the Air Jordan IX ‘Olive’ wasn’t a major hit in its last sighting in 2002, but will it see a much more favorable fortune this time around? Let us know if these are a must-have for you and be sure to mark your sneaker calendars for November 17th and we’ll keep you updated with ongoing developments on all Air Jordan Retro releases of 2012.

Copping no doubt...had the OGs in high school! Cant believe I ended up cutting grass in them...#kicking myself
dudes are bugging if you think there ugly....... one of the best original colorways since early 90's and i the retros that they released in early 00's so sleep on that........ 2 pairs for me on these.
These joints dropped back when I was a junior in highschool and I wasn't feeling them. Now 10 yrs later....honest truth still not feeling them only 9s on my radar are the cool greys, those new "french blues" and maybe the new photo blues
I plan on picking these up if they get rid of the shiny sole. Knock em if you want but i'm passing on the cool grey's for these.
Please let these hit the clearance rack again. 03 sneaker heaven, if you don't like please dont cop.
Ahhhh the memories!!! I loved these shoes when I had them as a youngster. The only bad thing is my feet kept growing! So even if I had taken care of my OG's they'd still be to small!! But I never did so it doesn't matter! lol.
i remember back in '02 @ a shop here in Chi couldn't even give these away. they took to the dye and dyed em all black and they sold em @ 200 a pop. how the times have changed.
And u we're prolly one of those that didn't cop wen they originally dropped...smh. These dat on shelves bro...look who's the hypebeast!
u f****** Idiot they sat on the shelves both of the previous times they released they were ugly then and are ugly now ..... No Matter What Generation Your From these are HORRID
these are nice! my OG ones i bought them in cleveland at a champs outlet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! back when the shoe game was not killed by these hypebeast!!!!!!!
nothing hypebeast about what he said. he didn't say whether or not he copped them. he said they sat on the shelves. i got mine for $50 2 months after release just to ball outside in. they may be the worst colorway of the ix, but they were also the cheapest priced shoe in the store i was willing to ball outside in.
I have wanted these since they came out in 2002 but could not afford Jordan's like that but I will have my pair in November for me and my girlfriend
