Crafted for a budding star as a high performance basketball sneaker, the Air Jordan I introduced innovation to skate culture. Almost three decades after its introduction, it remains one of the most storied skate sneakers. Nike SB and Jordan Brand collaborate to release the second edition of the Nike SB x Air Jordan I.
Born in Pasadena, Lance Mountain represented the new movement spawned from Craig Stecyk’s Santa Monica-based crew in the 1970s; Stecyk even drew graphics on boards for Mountain. In 1987, a Mountain video appearance had global audiences fixated on his feet as well as his feats on his oversized board. Wearing a royal blue AJI on his left foot and white/carolina blue on his right foot, he embodied the skater style of the time — with an added abstraction. That deliberately asymmetrical combination would become a pinnacle moment in skate shoe history.
The two Lance Mountain Nike SB x AJIs recreate this aesthetic by mismatching both a black/red and black/royal colorway in one pair and then covering the colors, DIY-style, with black or white paint. As each pair is worn and the paint wears away to reveal the colors underneath, they will become unique to their wearer. Lastly, Mountain created a “Paint shoes not walls” graphic that emblazons his attitude on the insoles.
Decades in the making, the Nike SB x Air Jordan I designed by Lance Mountain will be available in limited quantities at select Nike SB retailers and nike.com beginning June 7.
