Air Jordan IX “Black Bottom” – Release Reminder

May 8th, 2013 by | 11 comments

black bottom air jordan ix sample 5 Air Jordan IX Black Bottom   Release Reminder

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.

Air Jordan IX “Black Bottom” – Release Info

May 4th, 2013 by | 25 comments

air jordan ix black bottom release info Air Jordan IX Black Bottom   Release Info

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 Low – 1993 Prototype

air jordan ix low 1993 prototype Air Jordan IX Low   1993 Prototype

It’s a bit overwhelming when you look back at all the crazy sneaker designs that came out of Tinker Hatfield’s imagination, but there has to be a number of unreleased mock-ups that never saw the light of the day. One of those scrapped models is this prototype of the Air Jordan IX Low; it features the same midsole construction as the Air Jordan IX, but the upper adopts a much more “lifestyle” approach with the classic toe-box and heel build while managing to distinguish itself with the diamond-stitching and tiny triangular perforations. Your thoughts on this prototype of the Air Jordan IX Low? Check out the full shot below and chime in.

Air Jordan IX – Black – Mesa Orange – Dark Grey | Unreleased Sample

April 29th, 2013 by | 13 comments

air jordan ix black mesa orange cool grey sample 2 Air Jordan IX   Black   Mesa Orange   Dark Grey | Unreleased Sample

The Holiday 2012 season saw enough Air Jordan IX releases to last the next decade, but it appears that Jordan Brand might have had another one up its sleeve as we get a first look at an unreleased colorway. Intended for a Holiday 2012 release, this Air Jordan IX Retro combines Black, Mesa Orange, and Dark Grey in a nubuck upper for a rather clean color-combo that we’ve never seen on an Air Jordan Retro. While the shoe is a predominant mix of Black, Grey, and White, the hits of Mesa Orange on the heel Jumpman and the badges on the heel give these Retros a really nice color-profile, but the release of the “Cool Grey” probably made these a bit too redundant. We’ve got a first look before so check out this unreleased sample below and see the full listing from jordunk23 on eBay.

Air Jordan IX “Crown Jewel” Customs by noldo

air jordan ix crown jewel 3 Air Jordan IX Crown Jewel Customs by noldo

The “Crown Jewel” colorway of the Nike LeBron X was arguably one of the best of 2012, with the luxurious color tones alluding to the “diamond” concept behind LeBron’s tenth shoe. In this latest custom, noldocustoms shows us that “Crown Jewel” looks good on any suit, especially on the Air Jordan IX; adapting every detail withe the fuschia upper, pink eyelets and outsole, and the speckled midsole, we can confirm that “Crown Jewel”, despite being one of the best colorways of 2012, might be under-appreciated considering we haven’t seen it used in many customs. More angles are below, so take a look and let us know where Crown Jewel ranks among the all-time great LeBron colorways.
