First Looks // Air Jordan 1 Low “Just Skate”
Joining the recently-revealed Air Jordan 1 Low “Born To Fly” which honors the connection between the model and its adoption in the skating community, Jordan Brand will be delivering an alternate option that honors his Alma Mater in North Carolina, with the Air Jordan 1 Low “Just Skate” — another homage to the skateboarding scene.
Indeed, the release remains loyal to its basketball roots, featuring North Carolina-inspired hues dominating the design. However, it’s the skate-centric details on the inner side, “Just Skate” stitching on the inner tongue, and flame-accented Swooshes reminiscent of Thrasher on the outer side that connect the pair to skate culture.
The Air Jordan 1’s emergence as a skate shoe can be traced back to the mid-80s when icons like Lance Mountain frequently sported the sneakers. This eventually led to collaborations with the legend himself, and Nike SB x Air Jordan 1s became a common recurrence.
As for this release, you should expect to see pairs land on Nike.com soon, though the brand did not note a specific release date.
Until more news arrives, grab an official look at the Air Jordan 1 Low “Just Skate” below, and with more details to follow, be sure to keep your eyes glued to our official Twitter account for updates.
