What color truly represents New York City? Is it the green color of the Statue of Liberty? Maybe the yellow and black streaks of taxi-cabs whizzing by? Perhaps the neon lights of Times Square is what truly depicts the five boroughs, or the candy red for the Big Apple. Above all those iconic color combinations stands orange and blue – a sublime colorization that represents the New York Knicks, the New York Mets, and everything else ‘blue collar’ about the rugged concrete jungle known as NYC, so when one of the squads of the ‘Battle of the Boroughs’ Championship Game at Nike Rivington NYC this Sunday laces up to defend their turf, they’ll be rocking this NYC-specific colorway of the Nike Hyperposite. With the unmistakable Blue and Orange mash-up with ‘NYC’ lettering splashed all over the lace collar and insole, will these stand toe to toe with the ‘Statue of Liberty’ colorway? We’ll keep you on pace with potential release information on this colorway, so check out the gallery below and let us know what you think.
