Unless you live firmly under a rock, you are no doubt aware of who Jeremy Lin is and the impact he had on the New York Knicks, the NBA, and sports world in general. In fact, he was recently named one of Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people. Although he sustained a knee injury and won’t be back until the second round of the playoffs at the earliest (if the Knicks can make it that far), his fame and fan following have not diminished, a fact not lost on Nike. Seeing as Lin won’t be on the court for some time, Nike went ahead and created this Air Force 1 for him to rock off the court (his favorite shoe). With “LIN” written on the tongue, “JL” on the heel tab, dressed in a classic Knicks colors, there’s no mistaking who this model was inspired by. Keep your eyes peeled for these quickstrike puppies, in limited quantity this June.
