We're inching closer toward the release of Air Jordan Retro 9 "Johnny Kilroy," which pays tribute to Michael Jordan's '93 retirement alter ego. A combination of black nubuck and platinum tumbled leather is used on the shoe's upper, while Gym Red works the tongue branding, inner lining, heel pull-tab and rubber globe detail on the heel. Kilroy's fictional number 4 is embroidered on the heel, while a platinum midsole and black outsole cap things off below.
The Kilroys are expected to release Saturday, October 6 for $160. If you're interested in acquiring a pair early, dopekicks23 is selling this look-see sample now on eBay.
