The Air Jordan IX went heavy on the retro treatment in 2012, with ten pairs in total making their way to shelves. The majority of those fell into the Air Jordan IX ‘Kilroy Pack’ designation, a six sneaker set that played off the classic “Johnny Kilroy” ad campaign for the original Air Jordan IX. The sneakers hit on nearly consecutive weekends over the span of a couple months, most of them selling out rather quickly. Chances are pretty good that you didn’t plop the near $1,000 to pick up the entire pack, so which ones made it into your rotation? Now that the dust has settled, which pair stands above the rest for you? Click through with Sneaker News for a look back at each pair in the Air Jordan IX ‘Kilroy Pack’ and vote for your favorite from the group at the very end.
