New York City can be photographically depicted in a number of ways. The Brooklyn Bridge, water fountains at publics parks, or watching the sunset from a South Bronx rooftop speak volumes of NYC culture, and for an upcoming music video for DJ Kay Slay, NYC-native Fabolous does just that – orating his verses with the looming NYC night behind him. For this occasion, Fabolous rocked a throwback New York Knicks varsity jacket and matched it with the Air Jordan IV ‘Cavs’; although nickname of the aforementioned upcoming Air Jordan Retro has been debated, let it be known that anything Blue and Orange is pure Knicks in the Big Apple. Will you cop these IVs? Stick with Sneaker News for more release info and we’ll keep you updated.
Dare i say it but Fab is a hypebeast. He doesn't set trends anymore, he's just a follower. He can still rap his ass off though
These were dubbed as knicks when they first started showing these. Either name is fine with me. This colorway represents both teams for me bcuz MJ dominated & torched these guys. And for thosr who sport knowledge sucks, the knicks do wear black uniforms sometimes
clearly dis is a knicks cw... cavs havent had those colors in 20 yrs... so these will alwayz b the knick 4s in my opinion
dope..big fab fan and he always rocks heat..that said can we just nickname the iv the spike lee's at this point or melo retro??
What does Fab's jacket have to do with the name of the damn shoe? He didn't choose the name or the colorway.
and? who gives a shit that this loser ass hype fag wore them...?? he got sooo much money he can buy what he wants when he wants and instead of rocking OGs he rocks some ugly ass shoes....?? who gives a shit about this loser Fab aka Fag hes a loser and SN are hypebeast who love to hype shoes up by posting the same shoe 1000+times and then showing these losers in them so the 15-20 yr old wannabe sneakerheads can get xtra hyped up...SMFH.... kill the hype...
They are called the "Cavs" because Mike wore the Air Jordan IV during the first round of 1989 NBA Playoffs where the Bulls defeated the Cleveland Cavs (whose team colors were in fact blue and orange at the time) in game 5. With 3 seconds left in the game Mike punked Craig Ehlo and Larry Nance to hit the game winning shot that propelled the Bulls to the second round. This is one of MJ's greatest moments of his career. How can you young cats call yourself fans and not know this? SMH! The shoes are more than just a fashion fad to some of us. They are memorabilia that honor great moments in the career of one of the NBA's greatest.
It doesn't matter which team jacket Fabolous is wearing. The shoes are still inspired by Jordan vs the Cavs.
Haha young dudes putting on something just for face value...( comment above)....I agree...!! U should at least have a C+ knowledge of the shoe...or get past the first question....that is unacceptble lol
