For years the Air Jordan IX went unseen to the majority of the sneaker community, especially in the wake of such classics as its predeceasing Jordans. But more recently, it looks like a brighter future for the IX; at least from what it seems after spotting so many of them at Sneaker Con. The ‘Powder Blues’ were a highly anticipated release, as well as the Bin 23’s set for next month. But another retro that caused a bit of a stir is this Citrus colorway.
A popular combo right behind the staple Bred colorway, black and yellow has never been bestowed upon a pair of 9’s until now. Not too loud but not too subtle, the smart blocking of black, white and rich yellow make for a great matchup to the heavy hitters of this 2010. Aside the colorway, the leather actually looks promising as opposed to some other retros of late. The metallic sheen in the mudguard, as seen in the white/black/red and Charcoals adds an extra level of subtle character to the overall look. Take a full look at this July release, or head over to Osneaker if you’re the lucky sizes they have left.
