Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 Low UNC
August 10

The Air Jordan 1 Low will soon arrive in “Shattered Backboard” and “Court Purple” colorways

Pro skateboarder Eric Koston has another Air Jordan 1 Low collaboration lined up as both Jordan Brand and Nike SB continue its stellar partnership. Taking on the low-top version once again, Eric Koston gives this one a signature University of North Carolina (Michael Jordan’s alma mater) spin with the cornflower blue overlays and swoosh on the optic white base. The iconic Air Jordan 1 has no shortage of fans, and skateboarders are part of that enormous circle. Cutting it down to the lows isn’t going to make it less desirable either. Retailing at just S$179, it’s a complete steal for a pair this clean. Unless you’d like to drop at least US$909 (approx. S$1,255) for the Off White x Air Jordan 1 UNC, this is the closest you can get to this colorway.

Where to buy:
Nike SNKRS Singapore
