The Air Jordan 3 ‘Knicks’ Honors One of MJ’s Most Formidable Foes


Air Jordan 3 Retro 'Knicks'

Over the course of his illustrious career MJ battled against many a great foe. One of his more formidable foes were the New York Knicks. To recognize some of those great battles between MJ and the Knicks, Jordan Brand is set to release a special colorway of the Air Jordan 3.

As expected this colorway comes accented with the Knicks signature Old Royal and University Orange. The accents are featured on a white tumbled leather upper. As customary with AJ3’s, the toe, heel and tongue are hit with elephant print panels. The inner tongue has a tag which reads “04.08.88” which is the date of one MJ’s more famous battles with the Knicks. On that day MJ put up 40/6/3 (he had 8 steals as well) and led his Bulls to a 131-122 victory. Not without opposition though as during that same game Patrick Ewing went for 42/10 and Mark Jackson had 19/5/18.
