The latest buzz in the sneaker world concerns one Johnny Kilroy. Who the asdfghjkl is that you may ask? Johnny Kilroy is an alias known to be an alternate identity of the GOAT, Michael Jordan. Used in an old advertising campaign by Nike, the story comes back to life with the upcoming October release of the Air Jordan IX “Johnny Kilroy”. Released right after his first retirement, the ad features legendary comedian Steve Martin as an investigator proving to the world that this baller Kilroy is indeed Jordan in disguise.
Trading Card company Upper Deck even released a rare print of Kilroy in a Bulls jersey hammering it down. Check out pics of the Air Jordan IX “Kilroy” below (which actually has the number 4 instead of the number 23 on the back of the shoe) as well as the original campaign commercial featuring Steve Martin.
