Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 by Lance Mountain

The second installment in the crossover between Nike’s skateboarding and Air Jordan canons comes courtesy of skate veteran Lance Mountain. Though regarded as a legend for his contributions to pool and jump ramp shredding in the late 1980′s, Mountain also introduced Michael Jordan’s first professional model to skateboarding’s fashion sense – purely by circumstance. Around the time of Bones Brigade’s highly-influential In Search of Animal Chin video, Mountain filmed his footage in mismatched Air Jordan 1‘s, customized with paint markers and multi-colored laces for durability and uniqueness – a style reiterated in this current incarnation. Over 20 years later, here we find the Air Jordan 1 silhouette done up with premium black leather uppers, detailed respectively with red and blue accents. As each pair is worn away, the shoe becomes an individual statement – exactly as those radical Californian punks intended years ago. A video below gives Mountain’s take on the shoe, which releases online and at select Nike SB retailers on June 7.
