For years now, sneakerheads have been clamoring for more collaborations between Jordan Brand and Nike SB. Lucky for all of the eager fans out there, two colorways of the Air Jordan 1 and Nike SB collab will be coming out on May 25th for $175 USD. The two colorways are an interesting purple and yellow “Lakers” model and a grey and white “Light Bone” offering. What makes this collaboration particularly interesting is the fact that the layer on top chips away to create a whole new colorway. The “Lakers” model is perhaps the most sought after version of the shoe because underneath it all is “Chicago” colorway.
We’ve only gotten a few glimpses at what the “Chicago” scheme will look like but thanks to some new images from @zsneakerheadz, we now know what the shoe will look like when the first layer is completely chipped away.
Because of the leather and the remnants from the original layer, it won’t look exactly like OG Chicago colorways from the past, although if you’re a big Jordan Brand and Nike SB collector, these will surely be a must-have sneaker.
How are you feeling this shoe so far? Is it an instant cop or are you going to be passing up on these?
