  1. I remember when Air Jordans just came out. I was in high school and it was my senior year. This post brings up some strong memories for me! The look has changed a bit, but the logo is the same.

    • Hello Melinda, thanks for the comment. I was never really a big fan on the Air Jordan 9 Olive, but overtime, I started to have some affection for them. I plan to cop a pair for me in the near future. feel free to always check back with The Latest Sneakers for future articles on trending sneakers.

  2. very interesting review Ahmad,
    I’m not sure if I will find it easily over here but I could definitely think about to get a pair for myself; they look pretty cool, but would they keep my feet warm enough in this cold old Europe? do you know if are they planning for different colors as well?

    • Hello Stefano, thanks for the comment. The Air Jordan 9 Boot Olive is built for the winter cold, so you will definitely be fine if you plan to make a purchase. I heard that these are also releasing in black as well. Feel free to always check back with my site for more updates. Thank you!!!

  3. Lol, I love when you say way back in 1993 when the shoe was released. Makes me feel old! I would have never known of the Japanese influence on the shoe, so thank you for the history lesson. I’m a little confused about the price though. You said it dropped but put the price higher? My nephew wants to play basketball and I was thinking about getting him some new shoes for Christmas. Thanks for the information.

    • Hello Ashley, thanks for the comment. Sorry for the confusion, but when I used the term “drop” I was referring to the release of the sneaker (dropped in shoe stores). Are there upcoming Jordans releasing this month, I will be doing reviews on them and adding purchase links to them since you desire to purchase a Christmas gift for your nephew. Feel free to always check back with the Latest Sneakers for future updates on upcoming sneakers!!!

  4. Hey Ahmad, Love the site. I love J’s, but these will not be on my feet. I can see the classic Jordan look, but they just look too much like regular hiking boots for me.

    • Hello Brian, thanks for the comment. I also love the classic look as well, but just like you, I do not plan to purchase a pair of these. If the original Air Jordan 9 Olive came out, I would cop a pair. Feel free to always check back with The Latest Sneakers for future updates!!!

  5. Hi Ahmad, love your website! And the NEW Jordan’s…hmm I was never a fan, but these really look great! At least for ME. Thanks! Tom

    • Hello Tom, thanks for the comment. I can truly understand why a lot of people aren’t really into Jordans like that, but these boots are pretty awesome, but I am not looking forward to purchasing a pair.

  6. I’m not a Nike or Air Jordan fan, but those are good looking’ boots. In my opinion, they’re a little overpriced. My preference is either L.L. Bean or Timberland for less than half the price of the aforementioned.

    • Hello Allan, thanks for the comment. Air Jordans are pretty pricey nowadays, and since it is cold, Timberland would be essential to have in your possession. Feel free to always check back with the Latest Sneakers for more updates!!!
