Air Jordan IX “Motorboat Jones”

Johnny Kilroy was a fictional character invented by Nike following Michael Jordan’s abrupt

Johnny Kilroy was a fictional character invented by Nike following Michael Jordan‘s abrupt retirement before the ’93-’94 NBA season. A superhero of sorts who endorsed the Air Jordan IX and even had his own Upper Deck trading card, the mysterious character helped to “replace” Jordan as the face for the new signature sneaker. To commemorate Kilroy and the other alter egos assumed by MJ during that season, Jordan Brand recently released the Air Jordan IX “Johnny Kilroy,” part of the “Kilroy Pack” of sneakers. Next in line, the Air Jordan IX “Motorboat Jones” will debut on December 1 featuring tonal red nubuck uppers along with a black outsole, lining, pull tab and laces. Stay tuned for more images and information on this new Air Jordan IX  as they surface.
