Just yesterday Sneaker News filled you in on a new upcoming colorway of the Air Jordan IX dubbed the ‘Crawfish’ – yet another humorous throwback to one of Michael’s alter egos during his first retirement in late 1993. The ‘Crawfish’ embroidered on the inner face of the tongue refers to one of the semi-professional teams that ‘Michael’ played for, but here we have yet another enticing detail on the tongue label, which reads another name along the lines of ‘Bentley Ellis’, perhaps one of the many pseudonyms Michael employed during this under-the-radar basketball comeback. The ‘Crawfish’ also has the number ’23’ stitched on the heel, which was in fact the jersey number used by ‘Ellis’ on the Crawfish team. This 18-year old story continues to unfold so keep with Sneaker News and we’ll provide you with all the necessary details on this upcoming release! Photos: solewings
Air Jordan IX ‘Crawfish’
Looks like a Jordan x CTK custom. These came out great IMO. Still debating on whether or not I'm copping though
Im such a Fat @$$ the first thing came to my mind when i saw the pics was the Roy Rogers Fast food joint
I'll be going with a Wine & Gold Cavaliers jersey. And yes I'm a Cavs fan, won't be doing it just to match my kicks. Check the fitted in the pic...
EVERYONE MENTIONING MCDONALDS WITH THESE, INSERT FOOT IN MOUTH!
This is a Miami Heat colorway. Definitely going with my Alonzo Mourning/Wade/LeBron jersey BORN AND RAISED IN THE 305, so think before you try and call me a bandwagon fan
The yellow sole looks kinda off. Would look better white. Very loud colors, don't know if I could pull those off without looking like a firetruck
I like them as a PE or something. Idk about an actual release. Maybe need to see on foot or in person.
or the Trojans
