It seems that some tough luck has been thrown in the direction of the Air Jordan IX ‘Olive’. By the time the November 17th release date arrives, five Air Jordan IXs will have already released by then, diluting the overall selection of the Retro release. On top of that, the controversial ‘Thunder’ IV is also set to drop on the same day. Will the Olive IX prevail over its precarious situation and be a sleeper hit of 2012, or will it be an afterthought, much like the ’94 original and ’02 Retro were? We’ll keep you updated on any progress of the Air Jordan IX silo for Holiday 2012, but in the meantime see what it’ll cost to get ’em right now by visiting the listing from limitedshoes on eBay.
Air Jordan IX ‘Olive’
Black/Light Olive-Varsity Red
Nooooo back to brown looking!!!! Which one is it gonna be??? The olive green or this poo brown color???
I've been patiently waiting this release and the more detailed pics I see the worse the quality actually looks. The black synthetic leather looks like something on kmarts shoe rack. These will be a easy cop if you want them. I'll most likely just grab these while the thunders since my mall never really sells out, unless its a major or very limited release.
@187swizz Leather is plastic. The worse I've seen on a Jordan shoe. I remember the quality of fake air force ones back in the day....it has the same leather. Just pulled tighter which reduces comfort. Most people won't care to compromise their comfort anyhow to look cool. lol. I took mine back to the store quick.
@YungDav3 they run small yo... I got da kilroys & Montana's... I had to get a 14 in both rather my usual 13 size
@YungDav3 These are not true to size. I already picked up a pair of 2012's. They are slim, so if you have wide feet go up a size. You will see if you decide to cop em. Just don't buy your size and leave the store without trying them on first though like I did.
@MartinD44 if you look at he detailed images it actually looks olive ... these pics are jus fucked up .
@Cut Up @YungDav3 why jordan keep doin that? Changin the size feel of the shoe. My size dont cme in stores and i dont have tht luxary of tryin stuff on. O well
Well I've only seen one set of pics that looked green so I'm concerned. At the same time, I never rely on the early release pics heavily because so many of them come from the stores that sell bgrades. Hopefully, they are actually green.
