The Air Jordan 9 (IX) Original (OG) – Black / Light Olive – True Red colorway features a black leather upper with olive highlights, making it slightly hiking-boot-esc.   It has all the standard features of the AJ IX including the one pull lacing system and a sole with encapsulated air.  This shoe was notable at the time for not featuring official team colors, which had a positive impact on its popularity upon release.  The Black/Light Olive – True Red colorway was released in 1993 and retailed for $125.
