This is the "Johnny Kilroy" edition of the Air Jordan 9 Retro. A part of the "Alter Egos" Pack, these were inspired by the character Michael Jordan portrayed in a series of ads claiming to be Johnny Kilroy instead of himself and back playing in the NBA and, not in baseball. They feature "Johnny Kilroy" on the tongue tag and "Kilroy Kicks Butt" on the inside of the tongue as well as the insoles. Kilroy's faux number "6" is found on the back of the heel and is the only pair to not feature the number "23" on the back from the "Alter Egos" Pack. A general release, they were available at select Jordan Brand accounts worldwide in October of 2012. Retail was $160 and, they came in the generic black/white Jordan box.
