It’s hard to deny Jordan’s influence in skate culture, especially high-tops like the AJ1. Although this was a basketball first and foremost, it wasn’t long before it was picked up by the skateboard fraternity. To celebrate that relationship, Nike SB joins Air Jordan for a 2019 collaboration.
There was rumours of a low-top design but thankfully, for all you purists, these are in fact a high-top. Leaked images just surfaced courtesy of @solebyjc.
Recently showcased on the feet of Nike SB team rider Theotis Beasley, this pair sports a Lakers-inspired colourway. A strong use of purple makes these especially striking along with hits of gold to the sidewall Swoosh and heel. A colour fading technique has also be utilised, not dissimilar to the Jordan 1 ‘Chicago’.
Although several Nike SB x Jordans have released in the past, this particular style looks to be insanely hyped. As you’d expect, stock is thought to be limited.
