The upcoming Air Jordan IX ‘Cool Grey’ isn’t an OG colorway of the Air Jordan IX, but it is indeed a Retro release that came out when Michael was still playing (albeit for the Wizards). Not many remember, but Jordan wore the Cool Grey IX for a few games when he was with the Wizards, scattered among a slew of other Jordan Retros like the Cool Grey XI and True Blue III. This Holiday season, Jordan Brand brings back another healthy dose of Cool Grey in ‘IX’ form, and we’re sure these will be copped aplenty just off the ‘Cool Grey’ excitement. Are these a must-have for you? A detailed gallery awaits you below, so make your decision in the comments below.
Air Jordan IX
Medium Grey/Cool Grey-White
I don't care what anybody says but I am not getting these they look less bulkier and so cheap. Rather waste a couple of extra bucks for the originals.
I only promised myself to pick up 2 of the Jordan IX colorways. I might make these one of them. I originally was going with the all red pair (forgot what they called them) and olives. I might drop the olives because the pictures lately make the quality look super cheap
I don't care what anybody say's but this is my opinion, the CG 9's sh#t on the CG 11's period. People always hype the 11's up just bc they always release @ the end of each year. I been waiting on these since 2002 when I was in 7th grade. Now I can get them. These & the Olives r the only 9's I ever liked & wanted.
I'm with you on that. Got the olives, and got my cg 9s locked up at champs. I wish the olives were a little more green, but they're cool. These though. Cool Grey+Patent Leather=a hit. I like the 11s more but these are real clean.
