According to NSB, Nike SB and Jordan Brand may be working on a collaboration between a piece of Nike SB technology and the Air Jordan 1. As of now, the idea is that the Air Jordan 1 will receive a an upgraded skate specific sole designed by Nike SB. The potential collaboration is set to potentially release this year.
This type of collaboration should really come as no surprise for a number of reasons. Number 1, the Air Jordan 1 has always been highly regarded in the skate community. Two, the recently released Nike SB 94 by Supreme was inspired by the Air Jordan 1. Three, Jordan Brand has been dabbling in skate for a while now, remember the Flypside and the Air Jordan 1 Low Phat? And lastly, the Air Jordan 1 has transformed itself into a BUNCH of different sneakers lately, why not another?
If I hear anything else, it will be posted. As of now, we’ll put this in the rumors file.
