Long before ‘Kilroy’ was even a story, Nike whipped up this sick off-the-court colorway of the Air Jordan IX. The Air Jordan never really got a taste of the outdoors until this Black/Red/Olive combination hit stores, and although the concept of it was pretty incredible, the general public, still hurt from Jordan’s sudden retirement, didn’t want to see the Air Jordan away from hardwood. Needless to say, that notion’s a stark a contrast from how the public perceives MJ today, so we’re certain the Olive IX will see much greener (olive green, to be exact) pastures when it hits stores in November.

Well, I picked these up at Hoop City and I am just happy that you can return "new releases" here in Korea unlike places in the states. I normally don't complain about quality but these are trash. The black leather is black garbage. No give in them at all. If you have a wide foot, good luck. I couldn't even take three steps in these.
I still posted a pic in WDYWT though lol.
i hope people sleep on these! cause they a must have for me since my 02 pair didnt fit me any more and i had to sell! -___-
@Cut Up Were they real?? And Can I order from this place "Hoop City" online??
@jfin3 THANK YOU !!!
So they ARE olive green not poopy brown? These pics are the 1st that looked green to me
@Thigh_pillowz false- cool grey>olive unless you play baseball- nah im just playin but that's my opinion bro
@shagreezz3 I will ask them if you can order online bro. Yes, they are real. I don't wear fakes. Hoop City is like the HOH of Korea.
@elementasrat Hey to each there own. The CG cw just doesn't do it for me at times. Its plain like black or white in my opinion. I did have the 4's, spizike's and lbj 9's in CG but i wouldnt hold my my breath for anything to be released other than the 4's again.
@MartinD44 Bro, don't be fooled by the early release theory. In fact, you will see what I am talking about when you pick em up. They might be good for you but when I held em side by side to my whit Jordan 9's there was a huge difference in quality. The leather they use on these is not up to par but you might like em. I am not compromising my comfort just to say I have a shoe!
