This Jordan IX features a bit different embroidery on this pair with the ‘Kilroy Kicks Butt’ slogan where the rest are stamped in the same area with a team designation from what we’ve seen.

Kanye And His Fashion Sense

This week Kanye showed up in Paris for Fashion week 2013 in a pull over field hoodie, slim fitting leather pants, and classic Air Jordan 1 black/red.

At first glance you’d think this pullover is something from a sporting goods store, but it comes from supreme (www.supremenewyork.com) and knowing them, its more than likely >$500 and sold out. What do you think about Kanye’s outfit?
