AJ One SB Unveiled

MJ’s first signature shoe along with the skateboarding culture collide to create the AJ One SB. Skateboarding and AJ1 officially came together after the long wait, and it features a black and green upper, an icy outsole and an insole that calls out the “AJ One SB” project, and a white midsole to complete the look. Designed by Craig Stecyk – used to be the co-owner of Santa Monica’s legendary Jeff Ho Surfboards and Zephyr Production, which was immortalized in 2001′s Dogtown and Z-Boys and the 2005 film Lords of Dogtown – the AJ One SB takes cues from his art installation “Northwest Passage” and adopts his signature tribal identity alongside an iridescent upper reminiscent of bronze casting.  AJ One SB will be available in limited quantities at select Nike SB and Jordan Brand retailers, as well as,

Release Date: March 15, 2014

Originally crafted as a high-performance basketball shoe for budding star Michael Jordan, the Air Jordan I inadvertently brought innovation to skate. Celebrating this unforeseen answer to the needs of skaters, Nike SB and Jordan Brand collaborate to release the Nike SB x Air Jordan I.

Multimedia artist Craig Stecyk brings his signature tribal visual identity to the design, taking cues from Northwest Passage, his art installation that prominently features bronze casting and spray paint. The green-and black-upper features “AJ One SB” tonally scribed in a typeface designed by Stecyk that was originally featured in a leading skateboarding magazine in 1982. The same inscription also shows up on the Nike SB x AJI insole.

From the start, the Air Jordan I caused a stir among fans and executives alike. When fines were imposed on Jordan for breaking uniform regulations after he wore the black and red editions during a game, the shoe’s rebel image was confirmed.

The mid 1980s were a significant time for skating too — vert was booming, street was evolving and clothes were loud. Skaters’ outlaw image was intact, but paralleling Michael Jordan’s aerial attacks, a new breed of airborne superstar was launching from half-pipes. Stecyk was on the scene to document it all.

Skating takes its toll on a shoe, but it punishes the wearer. The supportive ankle height and Nike Air cushioning of the Air Jordan I, the very things applied to help Jordan hit terra firma with immunity, were perfect for vert’s needs. The premium leather was more durable than the baked rubber, canvas and suede of other models, and the Air Jordan I soon became a skate favorite.

Fast forward to 2014: the Nike SB x Air Jordan partnership returns with three unique makeups created in collaboration with two icons of the industry who ushered in the shoe’s adaptation — Craig Stecyk and Lance Mountain.

As a hit skateboard video from 1987 gained popularity, images of Lance Mountain in the Air Jordan I took the world by storm. From that point on, the Air Jordan I became a part of skate history, and the fashion in which Mountain wore his sneakers was nothing short of iconic. Wearing mismatching sneakers is something Mountain pulled of with ease, and is a significant inspiration for his Air Jordan I design coming later this year.

Decades in the making, the Nike SB x Air Jordan I designed by Craig Stecyk will be available in limited quantities at select Nike SB and Jordan retailers and beginning March 15.
