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. They feature a black leather upper surrounded by an olive green durabuck, which does look like an odd colorway, but seems to grow on you the longer you look at it. Releases that do not feature official tam colors (Chicago Bulls colorway) are always popular, as fanatics find them to be more rare. The Air Jordan 9 (IX) is not only good looking, but definitely has some technology behind it, which includes a dynamic – fit inner bootie, a “one pull” lacing system, large volume air- sole unite in the heel, an encapsulated air- sole unit in the forefoot, and a polyurethane midsole. 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.
