We’re nearing the end of the Week of Greatness and we’re closing it out right with the fifth release of the Jordan Johnny Kilroy Pack, the “Slim Jenkins” Retro IX. The “Slim Jenkins” edition is a deep black-matte silver/university blue colorway that pays homage to one of the alter-egos of Michael Jordan in the Air Jordan 9 campaign after his first retirement in 1993. The Air Jordan 9 became the first of Michael Jordan’s signature shoes that he never wore during the season they officially released. This shoe has a two-toned black nubuck upper with bits of reflective silver on one of the nubuck layers. University blue highlights are featured on the shoe’s inner lining and laces while the lace holes are matte silver. “Slim Jenkins” is sewed across the outside of the tongue replacing the usual “Air Jordan.” “Mystics” is stitched on the inside of the tongue representing the team that the fictional Slim Jenkins played for.
Limited pairs of the Jordan Retro IX “Slim Jenkins” release today, November 24th, at House of Hoops by Foot Locker and online at Footlocker.com for $160.
