This weekend's releases continue with the retro 9 "Spirit". I'm very impartial when it comes to retro nines, I do not own any personally and have never really seen a pair that I felt like I needed. I've like a few but I have never felt comfortable pulling the 190 dollar trigger on them. The pair pictured above has me feeling the same way, I want a pair of 9s eventually because I want to complete the Jordan clock of models 1-12. The above pair of 9s features the patented leather white upper. The midsole is a "militia" green and the same goes for the lace loops. The outsole is white which can be problematic if you are a sneaker wearer like I am. If you do like to stunt in new sneakers make sure you have a reliable sole protector, or always keep a Mr. Clean's Magic Erase in your house. Those things can take just about anything off of sneaker leather. So, for me, these 9s are going to be a pass. I don't like the colorway and it's hard to pull off a good look when you're trying to match "militia" green. If you are going after these nines this Saturday, good luck and as always happy hunting.
