When images first surfaced online, this upcoming colorway of the Air Jordan Retro 4 was linked to the New York Knicks. It's easy to understand why, with the famous NY blue and orange colors and Michael Jordan's history with the Knicks organization. However, newer revelations tie this pair to the Cleveland Cavaliers, victims of MJ's playoff game-winner in 1989. On his feet for the famous shot was the Air Jordan 4, which explains the possible HWC theme carried by this particular release.
The shoe sports a black nubuck upper with Old Royal accenting on the wing panels, inner lining, mesh panel underlay and heel tab. Orange Blaze works the lace tabs and Jumpman branding on the tongue and heel. Blue resumes control at the midsole, while an orange outsole completes the look below.
Still no word on a release date, but we'll keep you updated here at Sole Collector. In the meantime, take a look at the shoe in extreme detail below. And we mean extreme.
Color: Black/Orange Blaze-Old Royal
