The Jordan Retro IX “Motorboat Jones” is the sixth and final addition to the Johnny Kilroy Pack which began releasing in early October. The Johnny Kilroy packed is named after a handful of alter-egos played by Michael Jordan during his first retirement. The Motorboat Jones release is a challenge red/white-black colorway that is almost the exact opposite of the “bred” colorways Jordans are so famous for. The shoe’s upper is entirely red nubuck with black stitching. Black accents can also be found on the laces and alce collar, outsole, and Jordan branding around the shoe with the exception of the white Jumpman on the midsole. “Motorboat Jones” is stitched across the tongue where “Air Jordan” would normally appear on the Air Jordan IX. A unique basketball with a bandana and cowboy hat can be found inside the tongue of the shoe. It represents the logo of Motorboat Jones’ fictional team.
The Jordan Retro IX “Motorboat Jones” will release today, December 1, at House of Hoops by Foot Locker and online at Footlocker.com for $160. The commercial which launched the Johnny Kilroy pack can also be found below.
