Any of us familiar with Jordan's post retirement era (er…post retirements*) are also familiar with the name Johnny Kilroy. First featured in a series of television ads, the idea of Johnny Kilroy was at first a spoof poking fun at the fact that Jordan had left retirement to ball out as his alter ego. They also did a commemorative card with upper deck featuring Jordan dressed up as #4, Johnny Kilroy. Well it seems Jordan brand is not quit done paying homage to Jordan's alter ego yet, as we see with today's release of the Kilroy 9's. Seen dressed in a silver metallic upper with black and red accenting, the Kilroy 9's also feature Kilroy's number 4 on the back instead of the classic 23. The tong reads Johnny Kilroy instead of Jordan, and the insole features "Kilroy kicks butt" printed on; the sock liner also has Kilroy kicks but stitched in. The sock liner Will you be scooping up these Kilroy 9's? Sound off below. Pics sourced via the web. More pics after the jump.
