When these first surfaced, it wasn't completely clear if they were a Knicks colorway, but the more we see, the more apparent it is that these are indeed a homage to one of M.J.'s biggest rivals. His Airness was known for torching the Knicks nearly every time he stepped foot in Madison Square Garden, and it looks like this could be Jordan Brand's way of giving younger 'heads a history lesson.
These are outfitted in a rich royal blue nubuck, capped off with a white midsole, and filled in with hits of orange throughout. They're not the only low top Vs on deck, either, as they'll be joined by "Fire Red," "Alternate 90," "Dunk From Above," and "Chinese New Year" make ups before the year's over.
A release date has yet to be cemented, but don't be surprised if you spot these on guys like Carmelo Anthony ahead of the official drop. Check out some detailed images along with on-foot shots below.
