Nearly 3 decades after they were introduced, they are still among the most celebrated skateboarding sneakers. Thus, Jordan Brand and Nike SB decide answers to the needs of skateboards by collaborating to release this second edition Nike SB x Air Jordan Is. Much like how the world surrounding them is repurposed by skateboarders, the Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 was a basketball that became their preferred choice.

With the design of these sneakers, Lance Mountain is literally emphasizing how pairs have been mismatched by skateboarders wishing to extend the life of their Air Jordans. Each shoe would be painted over so that uniformity was created. This aesthetic is recreated by these Lance Mountain Nike SB x Air Jordan Is, which is why the black/royal and black/red colorway is mismatched in a single pair and the colors and are then covered in black or white, DIY-style paint. The colors beneath are revealed when the painted surface wears out after the sneakers have been worn enough.
As per the Air Jordan release dates 2014, both the black and white pairs of the Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 are scheduled to be released on June 7th, 2014.
