    So the knicks colorway WILL release with nike air and no jumpman? Seems there's some conflicting info but that was straight from the reps mouth.

    Basically they are going to squeeze all they can out of the original by releasing two versions of the white/red/blacks. One with the jumpman and release another version with NIKE AIR. Oh and charge an extra $10 just to say F you. Did I miss anything?

    The knicks colorway did have the Nike Air and no Jumpman and the OG colorway had the Jumpman air on it, I'll try to confirm everything with some of the designers, she was a rep the designers would have more info regarding this

    Awful man. AWFUL.

    They need to retro the metallic OG 1's if anything.

    I don't think the PHAT model has the Zoom insole - it has more to do with the wider, stuffed tonque and thicker laces. But lately they haven't been stuffing the tongue or running the 'phat' laces, so I'm curious to know what the official difference between the two is.

    Didn't think Nike/JB could bastardize the I's any further than they already have...so much for that.

    The knicks colorways midsole does look thicker than a regular AJ1.

    Any information on why JB decided to give the Royals the Nike Air treatment, but not the white/black/red?  
     

    Makes no sense.  The Bulls colorway is far more iconic.  

    Then again, as someone stated earlier, probably just a marketing tactic by JB since the Bulls version would sell well even without the Nike Air.

    ^ According to your video, didn't the rep say that they will re-release the White/Red/Black 1s with the NIKE AIR in the future?
