I’m extremely happy with this announcement as not only does it mean I can buy some more trainers (the collection is shaping up nicely btw … but more on that at a later date) but it also combines 2 of my favourite things in the world, skateboarding and Nike Air Jordans.
After a long long long line of unfounded rumours they’re finally here, the Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 is finally been touted for an official release this spring as a celebration to the ground breaking basketball high-top’s appropriation by skateboarding in the 1980’s.
Designed by Craig Stecyk – (former co-owner of Santa Monica’s legendary Jeff Ho Surfboards and Zephyr Production) – the shoe takes cues from his art installation “Northwest Passage” and adopts his signature tribal identity alongside an iridescent upper reminiscent of bronze casting.
The release will be available in limited quantities at select Nike SB and Jordan Brand retailers, as well as Nike.com, beginning March 15. (Btw yes I will be getting up at the crack of dawn and refreshing nike.com every 30 seconds from 7am onwards)
