A special Air Jordan 3 “Knicks”/”Knicks Rivals” colorway is dropping next month and it’s inspired by one of MJ’s ’90s rivals, the New York Knicks. Colored in the Knicks’ signature color scheme with White, Old Royal, University Orange, and Tech Grey, the shoe’s white tumbled leather upper is contrasted with Royal Blue and Orange accents across to emit the Knicks theme, while the model’s signature elephant print detailing are found on the toe cap, heel area and along the eyelets. Finally, the model is topped off with “04.08.88” listed behind the tongue to reference the “The Virus Game,” in which Michael Jordan played with a stomach virus and scored 47 points to lead the Chicago Bulls to victory against the Knicks.
