Today see’s the release of this special edition Air Jordan IX marking the 19th anniversary of Michael Jordan’s first ‘un-retirement’ from the NBA. ‘Johnny Kilroy’ was a false identity played by Michael in Nike’s original Air Jordan IX advertising campaign as a way of getting back on the court. This edition of the OG Retro edition of the Jordan IX pays homage to the persona, and features the ‘Kilroy Kicks Butt’ phrase stitched on the inner tongue. The usual ’23’ on the heel has been replaced with a ‘4’ rounding off another great Jordan release.
