So the Air Jordan IX has made it to an impressive ten different colorways this season now with the addition of Oswaldo ‘Pollito’ Jiminez’ superb design for the ninth Doernbecher Freestyle, and each of these Holiday 2012 drops owes a little token of gratitude to the 1993 originals.  The ‘Olive’ Air Jordan 9 is one of those nineteen year veterans, a shoe that dropped during Michael Jordan’s baseball career but still played a huge role in that first United Center season as the footwear of choice for the larger-than-life bronze statue that’s become one of Chicago’s most popular tourist attractions.  This neutral take on the Bulls’ iconic color scheme can be seen as one of many signs of the Air Jordan transcending basketball to become a foundational element in the modern footwear canon, and you’ll be able to get your hands on them on Saturday, November 17th (sandwiched between the ‘Photo Blue’ and ‘Slim Jenkins’ releases).  Have a closer look below, let us know how your AJIX collecting is going so far and stick with Sneaker News for updates.

They all look brown ask anyone outside of the shoe world and they'll tell u that. This looked the same color as it did back in 93, of course,color schemed are lighter or darker but they still remain true. Look at an olive leaf looks the same as these shoes
