Before Eric Koston became a figurehead in skate + sneaker culture, the SB legend remembers missing out on the Air Jordan 1 for the first time. Designed by Koston, this SB x Air Jordan 1 Low takes inspiration from the shoes he recalls sitting on the shelf, with the lids cut off the box, that his mum wouldn’t buy for him because “the shoes he had were fine”.
As a follow up to recent Midnight Navy edition – Nike Skateboarding and Jordan Brand will be unleashing the famous “UNC” colourway. This Air Jordan 1 Low features a longer vamp, resized Swoosh and full leather upper and comes in a Dark Powder Blue colourway. Koston’s signature is featured on the inside tongue label and when you flip it, you’ll notice “$24.99” on the underside, the price for that pair on the shelf back in ’86.
Look out for the Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 Low “UNC” to release on Monday, 12 August 2019 online via Nike.com(10am) for the retail price of R 1,699.95.
