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.
