Legendary skateboarder and sneakerhead Eric Koston delivers UNC nostalgia with the Nike SB Air Jordan 1 Low “UNC”, now available on StockX. This shoe draws inspiration from a classic Air Jordan 1 High model that originally released in 1985. The original design incorporated University Blue overlays, a color that has been made famous by Jordan’s alma mater, the University of North Carolina. This historic colorway combined with a long history of the skateboard communities love for the Jordan 1 made this a no brainer collaboration.
Just like many basketball shoes turned SB, this AJ 1 features improved technology including Nike SB heel Zoom sockliner for skating comfort. This low top sports a white leather upper with dark powder blue overlays and Swoosh. A white midsole, blue outsole, and Nike SB branding on the tongue and insoles completes the design. These sneakers released in August of 2019 and retailed for $110.
