You've heard the rumors - now take your first look at what appears to be a lineup of 2012 Air Jordan Retro 9 samples. Rumored to be making highly-anticipated returns are the original "Olive" and retro "Cool Grey" colorways, along with two styles we've never seen before. First, a Black/Photo Blue make-up somewhat reminiscent of the old Player Exclusives worn by Penny Hardaway and Nick Anderson. Also, there's a Black/Silver/Red pair that will pay tribute to Johnny Kilroy, a fictional character played by Michael Jordan to promote the Air Jordan IX in commercials during his brief mid-90s retirement.
There's still plenty of information to gather about these upcoming releases, but enjoy an initial look below and stick with Sole Collector for updates.
