In the latter half of 2012, Jordan Brand’s retro releases of the IX included a predominately black Photo Blue version. While that release entailed a two-tone outsole, numerous pieces were also produced with an incorrect, Black Bottom outsole. Despite no inherent manufacturing flaws, they were immediately deemed “B-Grade” for their inability to match up with the original color code.

They will be available exclusively via Nike.com through a link provided via the @NikeStore Twitter account.
