Here it is again – the entire sextet of Kilroy-inspired Air Jordan 9s simply dubbed the Air Jordan IX ‘Kilroy Pack’. Starting from the top left (Black/Blue), we have Slim Jenkins, Fontay Montana, Johnny Kilroy, Calvin Bailey, Motorboat Jones, and Bentley Ellis – the six fictional identities taken on by Michael Jordan during his 18-month absence from NBA Basketball in the mid-90’s. Jordan Brand has begun to unravel this interesting story by creating a Twitter account for Johnny Kilroy and teasing us with ‘The Popcorn Tape’, and we’re certain more sub-plots will emerge once we get closer to individual release dates. A full shot is right ahead, so give it a look and vote for your favorite Air Jordan IX from the Kilroy Pack!
I useta pretend i was johnny kilroy lol but i dont remember the rest i h8 red and the only pair id rocc are the calvin baileys
Its funny how everybody was dissing the Motorboat Jones 9s but now majority votes that they are the most wanted sneaker out of the collection now!
I been wanting the shoe from the start & I hope I can still get them. But otherwise the Motorboat Jones kills most of the colorways, if not all.
Need a couple of these...I personally like all 6 and think its a creative marketing scheme and the colorways are fresh, a break from the norm on j's of bred, black and white/ white and black cw. I jus gotta figure which 2-3 I'm feelin most!
Slim Jenkins huh.... nice. not really feeling the Motorboat Jones or Calvin Baileys though. I wonder how JB intends on releasing them since 4 or 5 pair of 9's dropped in 11 and 3 excluding the Kilroy's are already in the line up as well.
