Air Jordan 3 “New York Knicks” Celebrates MJ’s 40-Point Lead Win in 1988 Game

Jordan Brand is celebrating Michael Jordan's win against the New York Knicks with its latest Air Jordan 3 colorway. The AJ3 in question sports a white, orange and blue upper which is color-blocked in the usual AJ3 fashion, taking nods at MJ's 40-point lead over the Knicks on 04/08/88.

This numerical date has been included on the inside tongue tab, while other design elements continue the 1988 aesthetic. The colorway is bold and retro-tinged, brightly offsetting the stark white tumbled leather and signature elephant print panels on the heel, toe and eyestay.

Blue has been used to highlight the eyelets, lining and the outsole, while orange is seen more frequently on the wraparound midsole-to-heel clip, sole unit, Jumpman tongue logo and a number of smaller eyelets. The celebratory pair will release in both men's and big kids' sizes for $190 USD and $140 USD respectively. Pick up a pair via Nike stockists or online on September 14 at 3 PM.
