A collaboration between Jordan Brand and Nike that blends the Air Jordan 1 and the SB line will be among upcoming Air Jordan releases 2019. This collaboration makes sense considering that the Air Jordan 1 has been a favorite amongst skateboarders, despite being a basketball sneaker. It is also no secret that the Chicago Bulls vs. the Los Angeles Lakers, which this colorway draws inspiration from, was nothing short of historic.
While this iteration may look like any traditional Air Jordan 1 OG, it is actually equipped with insoles featuring Zoom cushioning, borrowed from the Nike SB line. This iteration is literally dressed up in a Lakers-inspired color scheme on the surface, consisting of Black, Court Purple, Sail and University Gold. However, as this iteration undergoes wear and tear over the course of being worn, it will reveal the classic, OG “Chicago” color scheme of the Air Jordan 1 underneath. Furthermore, instead of the “Nike Air” branding, it features the “Nike SB” logo on the tongues.
