Considering there were ten pairs of Air Jordan IXs to choose from the past Holiday season, it might’ve been easy to overlook a release or two. With the six-pack of Kilroys, the Doernbecher, and the Olive/Cool Grey Retros, it’s safe to say that the underrated ‘Photo Blue’ was the odd man out of that bunch, but thanks to a major factory blunder, the Photo Blues didn’t exactly go under the radar. A loud response from our readers resulted from the first report of the factory error that produced a black-sole version instead of the intended white, and many guessed that Jordan Brand would release them in some way rather than trash them for good. It appears that a few pairs have hit Nike Factory Stores, so if you’re looking for a pair, get in on the bidding action in this listing from 160jordansdeep on eBay.
