It figures to be an interesting year ahead for the Air Jordan Retro 9, which continues to surface in new colorways from the presumed "Personas Pack." Joining the retirement tribute "Johnny Kilroy" colorway is this Laker-like "Calvin Bailey" pair, sporting a purple nubuck base with contrasting gold accents. The name CALVIN BAILEY replaces AIR JORDAN branding on the tongue, while what appears to be "Gary" is stitched on the backsides of the tongue in white.

There's obviously still a lot to learn about this alter-ego collection of 9s, so stick with Sole Collector for future updates.
