    I noticed there wasn't a thread about the Cool Grey 9's sorry if there already was one.

    Anyway there hasn't been much information on them since early march when pictures leaked out of an early sample, along with the Photo Blue, Olive and Johnny Killroy 9 retros.

    Here's are some pictures of what we MIGHT see this Holiday:

    Heres a Picture of the Original Retros from 2002:

    They have been comfirmed and set to drop December 15, 2012; Will you be copping or passing? Anything that could have been better or is missing? Lets hear your opinions.

    Its WAYYYYYYYYYY to early to do an official thread.

    Mods usually put it up about a week to two weeks before they release.

    Oh and I have a feeling the vets about to spark off on you calling 2002 version the OGs.

    :lol:

    Back on topic, I plan on copping these.

    The first pic looks like the GS version.

    Not necessarily, The Charcoal 7 Thread was made in 2011, The Bred 11 in March and many others months before the release dates and lol yeah your right on the "OG" title, I fixed it.

    Still waiting for pics of what the production models soles will look like.


    Translucent sole = EZcop

    Solid sole = Pass

    I would love to see a grey midsole instead of white and a translucent (or white) sole.  
    Although this would make this a whole new shoe.

    True. & you're right.

    Its just funny how other than the pic posted, there hasn't been many new info of these.

    I hope they updated the sole and color, cause both are off.

    One of my favorite colorways of the 9 (besides the charcoals & bin 9s), so I do plan on picking these up.
