We’re smack dab in our coverage of the Air Jordan Retro 2012 Holiday release line-up and this time we really have a treat for the true OG Jordan fans. The Air Jordan 9 will be making its return in two OG colorways in the Cool Grey and Olive but we’ll also be receiving two brand new colorways this year. One of the new colorways will definitely have us impatiently waiting to get our hands on. Remember when MJ retired but Jordan Brand still ran commercials for the newly released Air Jordan 9. Remember that epic commercial of ‘Johnny Kilroy‘? He was that mysterious Chicago Bulls player who emerged after MJ’s retirement and reportedly scored 70 points in ONE quarter. Well being the clever minded guys they are, Jordan Brand will be releasing an Air Jordan 9 Retro “Johnny Kilroy” sneaker to pay homage. The Black-Metallic Platinum-Gym Red shoe will feature Kilroy’s jersey number 4 on the rear replacing “23”. The Kilroy 9’s are due to hit retailers October 2012 but keep it locked to Foreversneakz for more news later, until then check out the original commercial below.
