With a little over two months before the Air Jordan IX returns to retail, today brings us our most detailed look yet at the original "Olive" colorway.

Returning for the first time since 2002, the once hated colorway returns nearly identical to it's 1994 original release. Black leather graces most of the upper, while a lighter shade of olive takes care of the suede mudguard. Varsity red handles the classic Air Jordan branding seen throughout, completing a classic look for the first signature shoe MJ never originally rocked on court with the Bulls.

The "Olive" Air Jordan 9 Retro is scheduled to return to retail November 17.
