Long rumored and finally teased just yesterday, the Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 is finally on tap for an official release this spring as a celebration to the groundbreaking basketball high-top’s appropriation by skateboarding in the 1980s. Designed by Craig Stecyk – once the co-owner of Santa Monica’s legendary Jeff Ho Surfboards and Zephyr Production, which was immortalized in 2001′s Dogtown and Z-Boys and the 2005 film Lords of Dogtown – the shoe takes cues from his art installation “Northwest Passage” and adopts his signature tribal identity alongside an iridescent upper reminiscent of bronze casting. Appearing on both the heel and footbed of the green and black Jordans are stylized “AJ One SB” type as a contrasting white midsole and translucent rubber outsole complete the look. The Stecyk-designed Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 will be available in limited quantities at select Nike SB and Jordan Brand retailers, as well as Nike.com, beginning March 15. Stay tuned for additional Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 releases as a pair designed by Lance Mountain is on tap for a release later this year.
