Jordan Brand released the Air Jordan IX “Photo Blue” during the Holiday 2012 season, but that release was marked by one of the more publicized factory snafus in history. Several pairs (and by several, we mean in the five-figure range) were mistakenly produced with a black outsole rather than a white version, but instead of sending the shoes to the incinerator, Nike has decided to release the sneakers as a B-Grade release for $130. According to Nike, “B-grade” is the technical term for a flawed product; in this case, the only flaw is that the outsole color doesn’t match the product code. So, you’re getting a pretty sweet deal and a pair of perfectly built shoes that are limited in number. The release of the Air Jordan IX “Black Bottom” will be exclusively through Nikestore via a Twitter link that should go live at 7PM EST. Will you cop? Gear up for tomorrow’s release and let us know if you’ll be in the hunt because there’s a pair up for grabs no from oregonsole on eBay.

Yeah ill probably try for these tmrw. Cool concept. On a side note, I don't know about you guys but the tongue on the grape 5s is awesome lol
@cohee1akDue to the colors not being correct the product was automatically classified as a “B-grade” product. “B-grade” is the technical term for a flawed product; in this case the “flaw” is merely an outsole color that does not match the product code.
