This week, Instagram served as a source of unveiling yet another pair of the Air Jordan 11 Low as images of a orange/royal blue/white colorway surfaced, which seems to have been inspired from the uniform of the New York Knicks. Even though this colorway stays true to the typical Jordan Brand designs, it is not unnatural if 23 is Back readers suspect this sneaker to be a PE designed exclusively for Carmelo Anthony. After all Carmelo Anthony is one of the most popular Jordan Brand athlete and he plays for the New York Knicks. For now, nothing much is known about this new jordans, including any possible 2014 or 2015 Jordan release dates that may be associated with it.
23isBack readers may or may not recall this but it was the Knicks version that was the very first colorway of the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG. Moreover, back in 1996 when Michael Jordan had played against the New York Knicks, he had been wearing the Air Jordan XI IE Low. Although this connection may seem a bit farfetched, there is a possibility that it may be related to the release of this new colorway of the Air Jordan XI Low.
Even though New York Knicks have been perhaps the biggest rivals of Michael Jordan on the court, but even then Jordan Brand keeps of paying tribute to the New York-based professional basketball team. For instance, earlier in 2013, the Air Jordan I High OG had been released in a colorway that took inspiration from the New York Knicks.
Since these kicks are currently believed to be a Knicks-inspired sample, they have been appropriately dubbed the Air Jordan XI Low “Knicks.” The upper of this sample sneaker comprises of Blue Cordura and white patent leather, while the interior and outsole are in orange. Although the authenticity of this supposed “Knicks” colorway of the Air Jordan XI Low is yet to be confirmed, 23 is Back readers must be curious to know if any Jordan release dates 2014 or 2015 will ever be attached to it.
