Looking back at the Jordan Bin 23 Collection that’s been set aside for the moment, it was the Air Jordan IX that was the introductory release to Jumpman’s high-end Air Jordan Retro capsule, but it’s clear that Nike/Jordan had these ‘premium’ plans with the Air Jordan IX all along. We’re alluding to the Air Jordan IX ‘Olive’ of course, which released back in 1994 as one of the truest lifestyle colorways to date, and although consumers weren’t quite open to the concept in ’94 or even in ’02 when the shoe re-released, things will change once these hit stores on the weekend before Black Friday 2012. Ready to cop these? Let us know in the comments below.
Air Jordan IX ‘Olive’
Black/Light Olive-Varsity Red
Still have my pair frum 10 yrs ago but I want a crisp pair... I think these won't sell as good as people think... I thought those military & fire red 4s would sell big, still on da shelves. Most people waitin fa da 4s da wkend after & da cool grey 9s
I can't stand the glossy black midsole. My og olives look much nicer. Too bad they're 3 sizes too small. I have to agree they do look cheap with the synthetic leather. They almost look fake due to cheap materials. I'll still cop but lord knows that glossy paint will start cracking if you even look at them the wrong way. Complaining about quality is redundant though since jb and Nike are all about the bucks these days and will never produce a quality shoe at a fair price again. I guess 300+ will be the price for quality.
ill copp and dye these like i did the last retros. Maybe blue this time instead of black. midsoles please dong give up on me.
