Air Jordan I SB x celebrates Air Jordan’s connection to the skateboarding community. Its high ankle coverage, padding, Nike Air technology and durable premium leather made the Air Jordan I the perfect shoe for skateboarding.
Nike SB and Jordan Brand’s second edition of the Nike SB x Air Jordan I with Lance Mountain. 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.
