There was no foolin’ when Sneaker News showed you the 2012 rendition of the ‘French Blue’ Air Jordan IX back on April 2nd.  A 2002 original that foreshadowed the progression we’ve seen from tons of grey/white into grey/white + pop (remember, the first ‘Cool Grey’ Air Jordan XI preceded the ‘French Blue’ Nines by roughly the same amount of time), early previews showed how the signature blue hue had been added to the midsole for an even more colorful approach.  The most recent images to surface had this area in particular leaning toward purple, and now that we see this new grade school preview courtesy of All Day Jr., there’s even more evidence suggesting that on these so-called ‘French Blues’, “everything is purple.”  Does this new shade mean extra swag or would you rather see the color and its blocking remain as on the ’02 original?  Let us know as you’re viewing more shots on the other side and stick with Sneaker News for all of the Air Jordan IX 2012 release dates – remember these are slated to hit this Holiday season!

IF you wanna pick up some Air Jordan IX’s in 2012 you’ve got a bit of a wait ahead of you. Granted that wait will be peppered with plenty of other hot retro releases so that should make it a bit more palatable. What’s on the menu when they do arrive? A mixture of the new and old, with this pair ending up in the former category as a reprisal of the 2002 pair sporting a similar but not exactly the same ‘French Blue’ look. What’s different on the Air Jordan IX “French Blue” in store for this year? First of all the blue hue is stretched a bit further in the midsole area, secondly the outsole seems slightly more milky this time around, almost looking like a glow in the dark effect is in place. Stay with us after the jump for the full look and let us know which Air Jordan IX release has you most excited this year. Photo: alldayatf

We had already gotten wind of a heap of Air Jordan IX retros hitting this year about a month back, but only now are we figuring out just how deep the rabbit hole goes. One colorway that wasn’t included in that initial batch was the ‘French Blue’ shown here, which appears to be on the way as well, making a resurgence a complete decade after its 2002 debut. Interestingly enough the sneaker seems to have been augmented mostly in the sole area, where blue coats the midsole like never before and a possible glow in the dark effect appears to be in place on the outsole. Hit the jump for the full shot and let us know where you rank these amongst all the other Air Jordan IX’s on their way for 2012. Photos: kingcharles on SC forums
