Air Jordan VIII (8) – Quentin Richardson Game-Worn Knicks PE

Quentin Richardson’s one of those lucky guys in the NBA that got a boatload of Air Jordan PEs throughout his career, and playing on the Knicks for a few short years while rocking the number ’23′ jersey meant he got some of the best PEs ever created. That in itself is arguable but there’s no denying the orange-and-blue looking nice on almost every sneaker. Here’s a look at the Air Jordan VIII that Q-Rich was fortunate enough to play with during the 2007-08 NBA Season; it features a white leather upper with blue, orange, and white colors on the striking multi-colored mudguard with additional NYK accents on the velcro straps, tongue, inner lining, and of course, the ’23′ on the in-step straps. Recall in 2008 that the Air Jordan VIII Quentin Richardson as well as a ‘Sugar Ray’ Ray Allen PE actually did release in very limited numbers at House of Hoops, but this particular size-15 Promo pair was worn by Q-Rich himself.
