Air Jordan 1 Release

Posted on

The release of the first ever official Nike SB x Jordan collaboration is dawning! These shoes will go on sale this coming Saturday. Jordan shoes and colourways have been referenced by shoe companies for years. It’s surprising it has taken this long for Nike SB to run an official release. Jordan colours have featured on shoes since it’s inception and pros like Paul Rodriguez and Eric Koston have always been keen to incorporate this influence. Jordan silhouettes certainly inspired some of Koston’s most memorable éS releases back in the day making Nike SB the perfect fit in later years. Anyone contesting the shoes relevance to skateboarding need only glance at this picture…

All be it unwittingly at the time, the shoe lent itself to the pressures of skateboarding perfectly and still does. Keeping the Powell link alive in this first ever release Nike SB chose to work with famed collaborator Craig Stecyk. He worked on designing this shoe, his familiar handstyle appears on the heel…

It also appears on the footbed. The shoes iridescent black and green finish, coupled with a translucent sole unit make this a memorable release. Another champion of the Jordan 1 is Lance Mountain who is rumoured to be behind the design of a future Nike SB x Jordan 1 . The release date for these shoes will be on Saturday March 15th. They will be available to buy from our East London store from 11am, the release will be an in store only event.
