Jordan Brand is celebrating the 23rd Anniversary of the Air Jordan IV with some NYC flair, using a New York Knicks-esque color scheme for this latest new Retro colorway. It features a black upper with a blue inner lining and midsole with orange detailing on the outsole, ‘Wings’, and the Jumpman on the tongue. Following the massive success of the Jordan Spiz’ike ‘Knicks’ colorways that hit stores in late 2011, the Air Jordan IV version should be another monster hit once it starts arriving at retail. We can already hear the rumbling in boroughs for these joints, so let us know what you think of this new colorway in the comments section below and stay tuned for more info and pics coming soon. via taobao
Air Jordan IV Retro ‘Knicks’
the sneaker world is falling off Shit just doesnt have a classic feel Ill b back when foam stops with the 64 crayola pack n jordan stops dropping bullshit just beacause nike fucked him
Look mad. Fake and bootleg hope they fix that problem they need less orange and blue then they'll be fire!
These would look a whole bunch more appealing if instead of black nubuck, they went with just white leather. I love 4's but i think ima gonna pass these and go for the Fire Red 4's.
Oh my god these were made for me, I can't wait for these, I seen the blackout image and was wondering.
Im already tired of knicks colorways. They can really only be worn if you play for the knicks or if you're wearing a knicks jersey or something. Otherwise you'd look dumb wearing them.
these look terrible. White midsole black laces and these would be correct. As it stands they look like cheap knock offs.
Well, the IV's are my favourite J's. Stil gutten on missing the Doernberchers... But these ? No, can't say I like them...
lol the knicks had a little something going before the got the biggest loser in NBA history carmelo. after they got him theyre a .500 team... sad
the colorway is fire and I will cop but these first pics do make them look like fakes but as long as I know they are not I will definitely cop a pair
I love how everyone is saying there fake & what not but obviousky there not fake so who the fuck cares. Also we all know that jb is loosing its quality but there is nothing we can do about it so if you dont like it than dont be in this lifestyle. Ill cop but only at retail price, i will not be raped by some re-seller.
here we go with those fucking comments like "the material/quality sucks" and "they look fake" for a new cw -- how could you make a judgement on the MATERIAL if you haven't had the damn thing in your hands?! quality-wise: are there any excessive glue or paint-spill over you see on these?! any messed up stitchings?? NO? then STFU. yea the execution could be a lot better, like maybe put it on a white base, but how do they "look fake"?! -- fakes are fake because THEY ARE FAKE, not because of the colors utilized. so if counterfeit makers make a gazillion cw's for a shoe (which they have), then jb won't be able to ever come out with any new cw because fakes have been done on before?! makes no god damn sense to me.
I like the colors but the blocking is okay I guess. Well these are just samples anyway and we all know how Jordan likes to mess with us with samples (Nubuck Cement 3s, Tech Grey 4s, 10s with a 23)
They could have done so much better. Idk how I feel about these. Im gonna need to see more pictures.
These are shit. JB could rub dog shit on a classic silhouette and fan boys will still go out there and buy it. Only Nike would implement a price increase with steadily declining quality. Literally, what are these shit sneakers even made of, even the paint looks cheap.
something can look fake dumbass! quality wise does this shoe look bad no... atleast not yet. can the colors utilized can make the shoe fake? yes because those overseas sweatshops who make fakes always use those bright ugly and outlandish color schemes and designs much like this one and the dbs who don't fit in with the rest of the iv lineup because it isn't contempt or fitting with the theme of mj and the bulls but fit right in with these Chinese bootlegs chin chin and his boys sell. you just wrote a whole essay and sounded dumb as hell just shhh next time.
i understand what you're saying, but reread what i said. my point is that it ain't about the colors (besides, this is the knicks cw, nothing outlandish bout this) -- let's put it this way, if a car company in china jacked one of ford's concepts and then rushed the production to have a release preempting ford's by using elements of that concept, does it make ford's production model "look fake" then? replicas and imitations will always be the ones imitating, not the other way around.
