Remember the alternate “Black Bottom” version of the Air Jordan IX “Photo Blue” that was produced last year as a factory mistake? It looks like that pair will be trotted out for a retail release after all. The move is sort of reminiscent of the “Banned” Air Jordan 1 fiasco, wherein a b-grade labeled sneaker that would otherwise just be destroyed is let loose upon the masses. Also exciting is the price-point: the Air Jordan IX “Black Bottom” will hit for just $130. Continue reading to see some images of this out-of-nowhere release of the Air Jordan IX “Black Bottom”, releasing on May 9th at 7PM EST exclusively at Nikestore via Twitter link only.
Air Jordan IX
when these originally released they were in stock for months the only ppl who bought these are the ones who were to lazy to go and buy the retros that everyone else wanted probably to lazy to get up early and go get them but i hope they restock on cool greys this year
Honestly. These shoes look dope. Fuck all hype shit. I like the price. I can care less if hype beast are trying to make it into something they ain't. Don't like the shoes? dont buy it. If you do, then best of luck for you.
You guys can post this about the black bottom photoblue 9's for Twitter followers, but not about mass restocks of other pairs people actually wanted?
i don't care about the back story, the solid black with blue accents are simply way better looking to me personally, as opposed to the black AND white and blue accents that released. i always like my black based kicks better when it's closer to the blacked out look. i typically do not like kicks that have a black base WITH white AND an accent color. the simpler, the better imo...
Don't mention these with the banned ones. People will try to jump on these. I want to be able to get a pair
Great price! But I still haven't worn my cool gray 9s yet. So I don't really need these. But hearing that price is very refreshing
This is a dope CW better than those "Photo Blue' in my opinion. & this price is BEAUTIFUL!... But I might pass I want those .... on the 11th...
I miss those dayz when Js where 125 plus tax which came out to around 131.67... Look better then da white bottoms but still an ugly cw.. Espc wit fa glittery midsole
They're ok... blacked out everything makes anything look good. But the "mistake" b-grade that I REALLY want them to release are the red-sole bred 11 lows.... I like em better than the icy sole.
Guess u say that's kinda thoughtful of them pricing em at 130 since they just dropped the same shoe a few months back with a different sole
Black bottoms make em better but theyll still have that glittery shit on the midsole soo the sample 9s from last week >>>>>>>>these
Lmao! That's crazy I just remember reading about that samething about these being rare etc etc like couple weeks before the photo blue drops.. but idk maybe its the price why a lot of ppl "might cop it" or just that the CW looks clean.
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite That's some real shit. Everything u just said, exactly.
