Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 Low UNC Shoes by Eric Koston

Designed by Eric Koston as part of the 2019 Nike SB Jordan Brand collaboration, this powder blue iteration of the Nike SB Air Jordan 1 Low Dunk Shoes closely follow the release of the first midnight navy edition, which was introduced in June. Built with the same focus on comfort and style, this crisp power blue and white colourway pays homage to Michael Jordan’s North Carolina college team - the UNC Tar Heels - whilst subtle detailing such as a ‘$24.99’ design on the inner tongue label references Koston’s history with the Air Jordan.

Inspired by a pair he pined after as a child during the mid 1980’s at a price tag of $24.99, things have come full circle for the Thai American skater who now has two signature Jordan 1’s under his belt. As one of only two skaters with this title - Lance Mountain being the other - the Jordan 1 has a rich history within skateboarding, mostly prominently known as the shoe of choice by members of the Bones Brigade due to the high level of comfort and unusual aesthetic that had carried an ‘outsider’ reputation, before becoming more mainstream.

Built with comfort and support at the forefront of its design, premium leather remains the fabric of choice across the uppers for a super clean finish, whilst the vamp has been updated with an elongated shape in comparison to the previous model. The lower cut silhouette includes a reinforced toe panel for durability with a perforated surface that ensures a good level of ventilation. Nylon has been selected for the tongue for a cushioned fit around the top of the foot, and the wrap label features coloured matched Nike SB Swoosh branding with additional information on the inside. Below this an Eric Koston signature label reveals the original ‘$24.99’ price tag on its underside. On either side of the foot signature Swoosh ticks have been added for a classic look, whilst on the back of the heel Air Jordan brand logos highlight the collaboration. An Air unit has been added within the heel for plush cushioning surrounded by a breathable mesh lining, and the tread has been designed with one main pivot circle in addition to a textured grip pattern that supplies reliable grip across a variety of terrains. Two sets of flat cotton laces arrive with each pair giving you the option between white and powder blue.
