Johnny Kilroy joined Twitter just in time for the release of his very own Air Jordan IX colorway, which is something he didn’t have the opportunity to do upon bursting onto the scene back in the mid ’90s. This Michael Jordan alter-ego continues to build his legend nearly two decades after His Airness’ first retirement, and this dope new color-up features personalized messages on the tongue and footbed along with the ‘PE’ number ‘4’ on the heel badge. We’ve known to expect these as the first ‘alias’ release for some time now, and they will finally be available for purchase next Saturday, October 6th at select JB retailers so be on the lookout and stay tuned for release info on the rest of the “Kilroy Pack” coming soon.
