Longtime NBA fans will wistfully recall the game in the early 1990s, highlighted by punishing playoff series between the Knicks and Bulls in which offensive outbursts were limited by smothering defense on both ends of the court. Low scoring affairs, the games showcased a physical style of play with no love lost between the conference rivals. adidas Consortium revisits the rivalry with the aptly named adidas Rivalry Lo, finishing the low-cut basketball silhouette in two distinctive colorways: a New York Knicks version in white, blue and orange, plus a black, red and white style denoting the “away” uniform for the Chicago Bulls. Finished in premium leather, the kicks are scheduled to drop at adidas Consortium retailers on Black Friday, November 23rd.
