Early rumors regarding a re-release of the French Blue/Grey Air Jordan IX stirred up some excitement, but it was later confirmed that this Air Jordan IX was in fact colored up in ‘Imperial Purple’ and made just for kids. In fact, the Air Jordan IX ‘Imperial Purple’ is a Girls release, so if the past is any indication, expect a lot of Grey/Imperial Purple Air Jordans and Jordan models for Girls throughout the Holiday 2012 and Spring 2013 season. We’ve got an exclusive look at this sample pair after the jump, so take a look and let us know if you’d consider rocking these Sacramento Kings-esque colorway if they were a men’s release.

@Tennessee1257 you may be right, if you look at the older post the French blue from April 2 , http://sneakernews.com/2012/04/02/air-jordan-ix-french-blue-2012-retro/ --- They're very identical, i guess the Men's gonna have the funny outsole
and what else after
@flyguynameli Thats true too, i mean the flint 9 coming out. the outsole, i cant stop laughing how it looks.i just hope the cool grey 9 , stays as close as the 2002 and the olives, too.
@FATmanLoveCAKES jony5 these are for girls ! white/imperial purple 537736-109 pretty sure they come out in october. That's jony5's original post from the blog link you posted. Sneakernews started this fire and even tried to save face on the June 12 post for these. Sorry, no Men's release of French Blue 9's has been confirmed. I wish JB/Nike sees that there IS a demand for a Men's release though
besides cool greys
