Sneaker News just showed you the nine Nines that make up Jordan Brand’s Holiday 2012 Air Jordan IX Retro explosion, so let’s get ready for the next one set to arrive at retail. Based on the Fontay Montana character and his stint with the fictional Seagulls semi-pro squad, this new AJ9 is going to excite many of the same sneakerheads who were smitten with this spring’s ‘Cavs’ Air Jordan IV. These are like a home to that pair’s ‘away’ (and let’s face it, the best Cleveland could hope for in the early ’90s was for MJ to abruptly retire), and come with the kind of backstory that’ll have you creating your own flashbulb moments when they arrive at select Jordan Brand retailers like Social Status this Saturday, October 13th.
