The Jordan Shoes 2012 holiday season just became a lot more interesting for Jordan enthusiasts. In addition to the usual Christmas Air Jordan Retro 11 release (Black/Varsity Red this year), the Jordan Brand has plans to bring back the highly popular “Cool Grey” Retro 9.Last released in in 2002, the “Cool Grey” 9 followed the blueprint laid out by the 11 in the prior year. The shoe sports a grey durabuck and patent leather upper, accented by white on the laces, heel detail, midsole and Jumpman branding. Finishing off the style below is a grey translucent rubber outsole. This year at the 2012 NBA All Star Game there were some “out of this world” sneakers on the court. The All Star/Galaxy designs by Nike feature a similar theme, but different executions. The Nike Air Max LeBron 9 ‘All Star’ has a bight orange colored upper with a ‘galaxy’ printed lining, reflective details, a ‘LBJ6′ badge on the tongue, and a glow-in-the-dark rubber outsole. The Nike Zoom Kobe VII ‘All Star’ has a mulit-colored ‘galaxy’ colored upper with matching lining, a ‘KB24 Black Mamba’ badge on the heel, and also has a glow-in-the-dark rubber outsole. These very limited and unique designs are a stylish addition to any sneakerhead’s collection.
