Looks like 2012 might just be the year that Jordan makes his return to the Garden. Of course not the man himself but his sneaks rather, as the upcoming ‘Knicks’ colorway of the Air Jordan IV should be a popular choice for players and fans alike at Madison Square upon their impending release. So while they will no doubt be a favorite in the Empire Sate, the real question is how sneakerheads at large will judge them. To help you out with that, we’ve got some extra preview shots that deliver on the promise of continued OG-style packaging. Hit the jump for the full photos and let us know what you think of the Air Jordan IV ‘Knicks’. via MentalKicks
Air Jordan IV
Black/Orange Blaze-Old Royal
I swear The New jordan Cw's are starting to scare me. Seems as if JB is biting The replica Jordan styles
I will cop these if they drop only for Jeremy Lin. Yes he just beat the buzzer and won the game again tonight
I really want to know what the official name of this shoe is. A friend of mine that works for Nike's design team said this shoe was done in honor of the shot over Elho to beat the Cavs as it will be the 23rd anniversary of that shot. This is a CAVS colorway, not a damn Knicks colorway. No dis to NY but this shoe ain't 4 u!
wtf why did jb changed the blue i swear it was light blue in pervious pic this is a no go i was really exited but i guess these are not going to be copped because of royal blue so mad
These would have been super nice with black soles instead of the orange. Now they just remind me of a GS cw.
I've been seeing mixed comments on these.. more so leaning towards negative..either way I could give a finger in the middle I'm copping if they drop!
Agree, whatever is behind the shoe whether it is knicks or cavs inspired does't matter really. These joints look just like the crazy colored jordans you spot at the swap meets or flea markets
hahahahah they don't make shoes after a fricken shot go look at the maybe 3 or 2 other post on this shoe says the word "knicks" in it NEW YORK REPRESENT
LMAO! Knicks fans mad the shoe aint bout them. Y'all got the NFL Champs and Lin frying woking the worst teams in the NBA, can't y'all leave the lowly Cavs fans something to be proud of??? Why NYer's gotta be so greedy? They don't make shoes after a shot...soooo they don't call the Retro XIV the "Last Shots"?
If it is for the Cavs its not celebrating them or giving them a nod more like hey you were another doormat for the Chicago Bulls during that era. So if Cavs fans want that they can have it.
