Jordan Brand has never shied away from paying homage to Michael's biggest on-court rivals — the New York Knicks. Most notably, they served up a Knicks-inspired colorway of the Air Jordan 1 High OG early last year. Will the Air Jordan 11 be the next model to get the royal and orange treatment?

Below is our first look at what is believed to be a 'Knicks' Air Jordan 11 Low sample. Blue Cordura works alongside white patent leather on the upper, with orange finding a home on the interior and outsole.

We have yet to confirm the authenticity of the pair pictured, but it is an interesting conversation starter. Would you cop the 'Knicks' 11 Low if it were to release? Should these stay samples? Let us know what you think and we'll keep you updated here at Sole Collector.
