High-flying New York Knicks rookie Obi Toppin is one of the newest members of the Jordan Brand family, and the Jumpman has just blessed him with his first-ever PE: an Air Jordan 35 Low dubbed “Orange Flood.” Combining a Knickerbockers-inspired orange color scheme with rich gold embellishments, the design showcases newness, potential and NYC basketball pride.

As mentioned above this low-cut Air Jordan 35‘s uppers are done up almost entirely in orange, from the Flightwire quarters and toeboxes to the Air Jordan 12-esque mudguards. If you look closely, however, you’ll see touches of navy blue on the laces, around the tongue’s pull tab and on the heel’s Nike Air graphic. Gold appears on both the Zoom Air unit-housing Eclipse Plate 2.0 and the Air Jordan 5-inspired tongue’s Jumpman logo to round off the look.

As for Toppin himself, his Knicks have been the story of the 2020-2021 NBA season. At the time of writing they’re sitting at 37-29, which is good for 4th in the Eastern Conference and guarantees their first winning season in nearly a decade. Toppin has largely been stuck behind Julius Randle — a leader for the NBA’s Most Improved Player award who is having a career year — but has had an opportunity to flash his elite athleticism in limited minutes.

Toppin’s Air Jordan 35 Low “Orange Flood” PE will not see a retail release, but you can check it out above. If you want to see a Jordan Brand sneaker that you will be able to purchase at retail, take a look at the Air Jordan 1 Low “Arctic Orange” — a low-cut iteration of the popular Air Jordan 1 “Crimson Tint” from 2019.
