Back in January, we brought you word of an upcoming Air Jordan 5 selection dressed in a New York Knicks color scheme. Back then, only a photoshop rendering was available, but now we have a first in-hand look at what is to expect. Utilizing Sail on its leather upper, it gives the sneaker a bit more character than a white hue which has been featured on sneakers with similar color blocking the likes of the AJ5 “Independence Day”. Knickerbocker details come into play on the lateral “23” branding, the shark teeth on the midsole, its inner lining, and the geometric pattern that sits underneath its mesh panelling. At the moment, no release information has been made available, but check out the first look below and stay tuned for updates as we have them.
