Yesterday Nike Skateboarding finally confirmed a several-year-old rumor old by releasing a photo of P-Rod that introduced a collab between Nike SB and Air Jordan. The duo will be releasing a set of Air Jordan 1 x Nike SB sneakers designed by Craig Stecyk and Lance Mountain.
Many skaters remember the popularity of the original Air Jordan 1 during the mid to late 80’s. Images of Lance Mountain skating in the AJ1 are embedded in Skateboarding history.
For 2014, Nike SB reintroduces the classic Air Jordan model in an updated form. The first Nike SB x AJ1 comes in iridescent green and was designed by Craig Stecyk. The sneaker draws inspiration from Stecyk’s “Northwest Passage” Art Gallery showing during the late 80’s.
The sneakers are set to release March 15th at select Nike SB retailers. A second Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 designed by Lance Mountain is also due to drop in 2014; stay with us for details.
