The 2012 NBA Season was actually one of the more eventful ones in recent years. The lockout shortened the season to a grueling 66-game schedule, and the two biggest stars in the NBA are currently going head to head in the NBA Finals in the match-up that hasn’t been so exciting for decades. What might eclipse both headlines on a global scale was the rise of Jeremy Lin in New York, where the former D-League star and NBA roster cast-off emerged as one of the most exciting players in the league, sprouting ‘Linsanity’ wherever he stopped to smell the roses. A special Nike Air Force 1 Low in a Knicks colorway was created with Lin-specific details on the tongue, heel, and insole, so while we haven’t seen many detailed angles nor has a U.S. release been confirmed, these have popped up in certain areas around the globe (a June release had been confirmed earlier). We’ve got some more angles of this sick Air Force 1 release below so stay tuned to Sneaker News for more Lin updates and cop this pair right now from retroshop2012 on eBay.
