Nike SB and Jordan Brand are soon to release the new Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 Pack. In collaboration with Lance Mountain, the unique release brings new meaning to the concept of wear-and-tear on shoes.
According to Nike: “More literal with his designs, Mountain chose to emphasize how skaters of the era mismatched pairs in order to extend the life of their Jordans. To create uniformity they would then paint over each shoe. The two Lance Mountain Nike SB x AJIs recreate this aesthetic by mismatching both a black/red and black/royal colorway in one pair and then covering the colors, DIY-style, with black or white paint. As each pair is worn and the paint wears away to reveal the colors underneath, they will become unique to their wearer. Lastly, Mountain created a “Paint shoes not walls” graphic that emblazons his attitude on the insoles.”
The Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 Pack designed by Lance Mountain will be available in limited quantities at select Nike SB retailers and online at Nike.com beginning June 7.
Thrasher Magazine hits the road with a new feature at their site called Traffic Talk. Lance Mountain takes shotgun for the premier episode and discusses classic skateparks, Neil Blender, BB gun accidents and much more.
