Johnny Kilroy joined Twitter just in time for the release of his very own Air Jordan IX colorway, which is something he didn’t have the opportunity to do upon bursting onto the scene back in the mid ’90s.  This Michael Jordan alter-ego continues to build his legend nearly two decades after His Airness’ first retirement, and this dope new color-up features personalized messages on the tongue and footbed along with the ‘PE’ number ’4′ on the heel badge.  We’ve known to expect these as the first ‘alias’ release for some time now, and they will finally be available for purchase next Saturday, October 6th at select JB retailers so be on the lookout and stay tuned for release info on the rest of the “Kilroy Pack” coming soon.

Air Jordan IX “Kilroy”

September 13th, 2012 by | 8 comments

The ratio of upcoming Air Jordan IX colorways designed for Michael himself versus other ‘people’ is starting to look like a scene in Space Jam, as more new styles reveal their stories in advance of holiday release dates. The Air Jordan IX ‘Johnny Kilroy’ hearkens back to the 1993 Steve Martin TV spot in which the Swoosh supposed Mike might be up to his old tricks, under a new disguise. They remind us that His Airness had the talent to become the Ronnie Coleman of the NBA instead of ‘just’ a two-time three-peater, and will be joined by ‘Crawfish’ and ‘Calvin Bailey’ colorups (not to mention the Penny/Magic-esque ‘Photo Blues’) to thicken the plot of MJ’s first retired/baseball season. This one’s coming up first with an October 6th drop date and you can see more images below to tide you over.

In less than two months, we will get reminded of one of the saddest moments in sports history – when Michael Jordan decided to hang up his jersey for good after conquering all that he sought after as an NBA professional. Not two years later, Jordan would return to the game of basketball, but his true love for the game was exemplified by Nike’s ‘Johnny Kilroy’ ad campaign and those ‘Kilroy Kicks Butt’ t-shirts. Hopefully those old-school tees will make a comeback alongside the Air Jordan IX ‘Johnny Kilroy’ on October 6th, but if you can’t wait to get these laced on your feet, on pair just popped up for sale from aznkevin888 on eBay.

Air Jordan IX “Johnny Kilroy” – Detailed Images

Twenty years after his mysterious appearance, we find ourselves still searching for clues as to “Who is Johnny Kilroy?” A fictional superhero based on and played by Michael Jordan ‘endorsed’ the Air Jordan IX while MJ was busy with the Birmingham Barons, Kilroy was depicted in ads and even his own Upper Deck trading card as number ’4′ on the Chicago Bulls (a reference to the four-peat His Airness left hanging?), but has recently been linked to the ‘Crawfish’ theme of another upcoming AJ9. This Kilroy edition sticks with a traditional Chi-town palette, but its bold ‘reversed’ colorblocking makes for one of the most unique Nines to date. Have a closer look at some new images after the jump, let us know where these rank on your list of 2012 Air Jordan 9 Retros and stick with Sneaker News for updates as we approach the October 6th drop.

This October 6th, the Air Jordan IX will make another wave of noise with a cluster of Retro releases for the Holiday 2012 season. We’re not much removed from 2010′s batch of OGs (the Powder, Charcoal, and OG White/Black/Red) and newbies (Citrus, FTLOTG), but this upcoming set doesn’t feature any double-ups, so not to worry! Kicking things off is the Black/Metallic Platinum-Gym Red colorway we commonly refer to as the ‘Kilroy’; this release is a tribute to Michael Jordan’s first ‘un-retirement’ when he took the basketball court under the pseudonym ‘Johnny Kilroy’. A sample pair just rose up for sale online, so peep these new photos below and let us know if you’re excited for upcoming Air Jordan IX return – or just cop this sample pair from dopekicks23 on eBay.

Air Jordan IX “Johnny Kilroy” – Available on eBay

Part of what attracted Michael Jordan to Nike over his earlier preference for a contract with adidas was the notion that His Airness could become a global brand, transcending the Swoosh with his own Wings logo. The Air Jordan IX gave us the first look at what a post-retirement release might look like, and with the league’s reigning seven-time defending scoring champion (seven in a row!) on the sidelines, his Bulls looked to a new leader.

In reality, this role was filled by Scottie Pippen, who led Chicago to 55 wins and another playoff appearance. Annual title expectations had many Bulls fans imagining the Jumpman once again, but with Jordan himself busy playing baseball, Nike had to get creative with his on-court appearances. A mysterious amalamation somewhere between Superman’s Clark Kent and the Leroy Smith character Charlie Murphy would bring to life fifteen years later, Johnny Kilroy rocked the number ’4′ and the Air Jordan 9 and even had his own Upper Deck trading card. Now ‘he’ has his own Nine ‘PE’ complete with personalized heel and inner tongue embroidery set to arrive on the 19th anniversary of MJ’s abrupt retirement. Be sure to stick with Sneaker News for updates in the meantime, and those lucky individuals who wear and/or collect size 9s can find this pair available early from digioaux on eBay.
