Sitting down? Okay, you’re ready to hear about the Lance Mountain x Nike SB x Air Jordan 1. Inspired by Mountain’s days of skating in painted, mismatched Air Jordan 1s,
Nike SB, Skateboarding, started off in 2002 so Nike can compete against other skateboarding brands such as DVS, DC, Globe, and Vans. It started off with just the Dunk models, and later on Nike signed Paul Rodriguez (P-Rod) with his own signature shoe. Also in 2005, Nike introduced the Blazer SB, a revamp of the 1970's model with Zoom Air insoles.
Nike SB is very popular because of the exclusiveness to only skateshops and their collaborations. These collaborations include MF Doom, De La Soul, Pee Wee Herman, Vanilla Ice, Tiffany Diamonds, and the mash-up of all of the Nike Dunk SB lows with the "What The Dunk."
With the recent release of the first Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 this past Saturday, the tandem effort is showing no signs of slowing as a second, and possibly upcoming, colorway has been revealed. As a contrast to the black and iridescent color scheme, it appears its counterpart is opting for a white based, with black as an accent, helped out by outsoles of blue and red hues. Press play on the video up top to catch a glimpse of perhaps the latest Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 offering.
Season 4 of Sneak Peek is officially underway.
The six-episode lineup, titled the “Season of Firsts,” will feature pioneers of some sort in relation to Sneak Peek. Today, the spotlight is on X-Game medalist Paul Rodriguez, the first professional skateboarder we’ve featured. In the Season 4 opener, which takes place in “The Valley,” check out P-Rod’s incredible stash of signatures, Nike SBs and his brand new skateboard setup.
The new year has brought out a new evolution of Nike Skateboarding’s most popular model as we gear up for the release of the Nike SB Stefan Janoski Max in three clean colorways. Outfitted in breathable mesh, the new shoe maintains its signature look while adding in Max Air cushioning and a Nike Free outsole in the forefoot. Those looking to add this versatile hybrid to their sneaker rotation can head to their nearest PacSun. The Nike SB Janoski Max is slated to release this Saturday in Crimson with the Black and Navy pairs hitting the retailer in a few short weeks.
