“Photo Blue” Air Jordan 9 Retro

Michael Jordan switched from basketball to baseball at a time when trading cards had forged a new renaissance, and as any serious collector can tell you, errored cards are often valued more highly than the revisions.  The sneaker world has yet to experience its own ‘Billy Ripken’ moment, but the ‘Photo Blue’ Air Jordan IX being cast in 10,000 off-colored pairs is sure to go down as one of the mythical tales passed back and forth between dedicated sneakerheads.  Whether we’ll one day discuss ‘Photo Blue’ Nine ‘a’ vs ‘b’ hinges entirely on the razor slim possibility that the black-soled edition will ever hit store shelves, but we know for sure that the white-bottomed style is still on track for an early November drop.  Stick with Sneaker News for updates as we approach the drop date and check out some new images of the retail version in the meantime.

Air Jordan IX “Photo Blue” Suffers Huge Factory Error

jordan ix photo blue error 3 Air Jordan IX Photo Blue Suffers Huge Factory Error

We’re certain you caught it already, but the upcoming Air Jordan IX ‘Photo Blue’ release has unfolded in an unusual manner. When we first saw the shoe, it featured a solid white outsole, but only recently, when full detailed images of the shoe began to surface, the ‘Photo Blue’ was suddenly sitting on a solid black base. Was the white version perhaps a kids-only release, or even a completely different sneaker? Turns out both shoes aren’t two distinct sneakers, but are actually intended to be one sole release; a major error at the Jordan Brand factory in China produced the shoe with a black outsole, and the production number of the incorrect black-outsole version – roughly 10,000 pairs – is a pill too big to swallow.

Simply trashing the shoes would be rather wasteful in terms of money spent and potential earnings lost, and it appears that Jordan Brand will move forward with the white-outsole version with the given style-code of 302370-007. Obviously a few questions remain: What will Jordan Brand do with this mass surplus of Air Jordan IXs? Will they be a straight-to-the-outlet release like the Air Jordan 1 ‘Banned’ and suddenly become high in demand for this unique blunder, or will Jordan Brand shelve them and re-release at another point in the future? Most importantly, which version do you, the consumer, like better? We need your opinions so get the discussion going below.

Air Jordan 9 “Photo Blue”

The most recent viewing of the “growing on us” Air Jordan IX in Photo Blue proved that what we saw earlier with the white outsole was not the final product. Instead, we’ll be treated with a tonal-black set-up with a ‘Penny’ look achieved by the Photo Blue accents on the upper, like the logos on the heel and the outsole and a ample contrast stitching on the upper. Maybe the appeal on these is growing because they’re very similar to Penny Hardaway’s Player Exclusive that we showed you a few months back? Let us know what you think of these and maybe your opinion on these will flip (in either direction) because we have a lot of time until the November 3rd release date.

Despite what may be confirmed for the near future, things can still change; here’s the latest viewing of the upcoming Air Jordan IX Retro in the Black/Photo Blue colorway; if you haven’t pointed it out just yet, check out the outsole, which has been changed to a solid black color from the white seen in earlier photos. What remains in the black midsole and the black/photo blue contrast on the upper, but even with the minor alteration to the outsole, these still exude that Penny Hardaway PE goodness, don’t they? More images of the Air Jordan IX ‘Photo Blue’ right ahead, so take a look and let us know what you think of the change. Photos: pure-sole

Unless your name is Penny Hardaway you’ve probably never had a chance at picking up an Air Jordan IX with the straight black blue look. Fortunately for us common folk the chance is on the horizon, as Jordan Brand is prepping this pair, the Air Jordan IX ‘Photo Blue’, for a release come November amongst a strong crop of other pairs from the same silhouette. Can it win some fans as a neophyte amongst established colorways like the ‘Olive’ that it will be sharing shelf space with? Let us know what you think after you hit the jump for the extra view of the Air Jordan IX ‘Photo Blue’. Photos: alldayatf
