Air Jordan 1 High “Knicks”
One of the standouts of the Jordan Brand Spring 2013 showcase earlier today was this Air Jordan 1 Retro High in a Knicks-specific colorway of Blue and Orange. However, it’s not the choice of color that stands out, but the fact that Jordan Brand went against its trend of Nike branding and went with the ‘Nike Air’ on the tongue label in addition to the blank heel (the newer AJ1 Retros have a Jumpman on the heel). Perhaps there’s a throwback inspiration to this release, like when Michael broke out the Air Jordan 1 Retro during his final game at MSG as a Chicago Bull, or just a tribute to Carmelo’s NY affiliation? We’ve got a detailed look at this mildly controversial Air Jordan Retro for Spring 2013 so take a look and give us your thoughts on this ‘Nike Air’ labeled Air Jordan 1 High.
