It took LeBron nine signature shoes to get his first NBA title. By Jordan’s ninth shoe, he was already retired with three Rings under his belt. Not taking anything away from LeBron James, but there’s more to be done if you want to wrestle away the title of G.O.A.T. from Jordan! This October, Jordan Brand will re-tell the fictional story of Johnny Kilroy – a basketball player believed to be Michael Jordan under disguise. For the youngsters who weren’t around when Jordan played (or possibly weren’t alive when Jordan was Johnny Kilroy), you’ll get the opportunity to cop the Kilroy IXs this October 6th, kicking off a string of Air Jordan IX Retro releases for the Holiday 2012 season. Are these a must-have for you, or are other AJ9s the better catch? via scforums
Air Jordan IX ‘Johnny Kilroy’
Black/Metallic Platinum-Gym Red
Bsasically 9s werent used in the game by MJ. Therefore I dont care whether its OG color or not. I have to see better pictures anyway.
Want to wait till I see a better picture to decide and not a grainy cell phone shot, but the concept is so cool. From the Steve Martin video to the #4 replacing the #23 in the back, I think these have got something.
Ill get these or the photo blues as a 2nd cop. My only most is the Olives. grew out of my 02 pair and cant wait to get em again.
These & da olives fa me... not feeling da photo blues & I have da cool greys frum last release... and da french blues aren't even french blu. More of a concord purple color
Too many 9's in too little time. Probably going to try to get the cool grey's just like everybody else (which sucks), and i kinda like the olives. Gotta make some decisions though cuz the holidays are holding a bunch of fresh releases!
I think i like them, I want to see better pictures though. I'm thinking of these and the black and blue's. Olives are horrible in my opinion, as most people thought the only other time they released.
I'm getting these on one condition if it's silver be silver, there's no shine I own to many black grey red j's so if it's silver I'm in.
i'm copping because they're dope and the cool storyline behind them... call me a hypebeast or whatever you want lol
lmao this release is going to be hilarious!!! a bunch! of little lame 15-20yr old wannabe sneakerheads trying to cop these trying to have something they know *nothing*! about...SMFH....disgusting a bunch of followers buying something they know nothing of...just because everybody is doing it and its JB...promise if it wasn't because everybody is being little wannabes and are into this *fad* because that's what the shoegame is right now solely a fad that is going to die away just like when these loser children were wearing skinny jeans...LMAO....none of these children would even want these if it wasn't for that...SMH...#kill the h.yp.e..
