Both rebels of the 1980s, Michael Jordan’s shoes and skateboarding culture collide to create the Nike SB x Air Jordan 1. MJ’s first signature made waves when it was banned from the NBA, giving the model an oppositional image that lines up with the vibes of skating. The two entities officially came together when famous skaters started donning the silhouette on the ramps in the late ’80s, appreciating its supportive ankle height and Nike Air cushioning. This mashup that has been a longtime coming is inaugurated in a green and black colorway that was designed by multimedia artist Craig Stecyk, who brought his signature tribal visual identity to the model with “AJ One SB” tonally scribed on the heel and insoles. Three renditions of the Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 will ultimately be released, with this first style code from Craig Stecyk kicking it off on March 15th.
