Air Jordan 9 (Johnny Kilroy)

Is Johnny Kilroy Michael Jordan? That's the question Nike put to us back in 1993 when it was left to market the Jordan 9 without the on-court heroics of the shoe's namesake who had retired to slug it out in the baseball minor leagues. An inventive ad campaign fronted by Steve Martin turned the mysterious MJ-clone Kilroy into a cult hero. Now Kilroy's signature 9s are set for a release, featuring his name, number and ‘Kilroy Kicks Butt' emblazoned in the tongue. Available on October 6th at Singapore's Limited Edition, thanks to Streething for the preview.
