A minor slip up on a hot shoe.

by Chris O’Leary/@olearychris

A quick heads up on a minor error in the current issue of SLAM.

In our KICKS section, the Jordan IX retro in black/citrus/white is listed at $75 when it’s actually $150.

On a somewhat related note, provided he stays in Miami, I can’t wait to see Dwyane Wade in these sneakers. Until then, back to the free agency carnival. A word of advice to Wade and LBJ: the Nets’ rides are subject to faulty carny engineering. Just saying.

    Also could have been interpreted as 75 per shoe.

    Each of the four pairs of Jordans I’ve bought in the last four or five years squeak when I walk on them. I’m done with them.

    Got mine. I remember the sample being nice than they turned out… Kind of disappointed in em, TBH. Thankfully, I pay wholesale (trust me, the markup for retailers is not what you’d think), so ain’t such a bad deal.
