Upside Down Air Jordan 9 Tongue Label (1)

by Brandon Richard

When Jordan Brand promised to deliver improved retro quality this year, this wasn't what they had in mind.

After unboxing her "Anthracite" Air Jordan 9s, Twitter user @morganohanlon noticed that something was a little off — the right tongue tag was stitched upside down. While that's something you want to see on the back of the Air Jordan 4 tongue, it's definitely not how the 9 was designed.

And according to the unlucky customer, her purchase was made directly from Nike, so this isn't a case of someone getting burned by an early release dealer. Fortunately, Nike is pretty good about replacing defective sneakers and this will probably be resolved.
