This Is What The Lance Mountain x Nike SB Air Jordan 1 Looks Like After It’s Been Skated In
The next set of Nike SB Air Jordan 1 releases won’t release until June, but we’re getting an on-feet, post-wear look from the man who designed them himself. Skate legend Lance Mountain posted up this aerial on-feet shot of the white pair of the upcoming shoes, with the white paint exterior almost completely worn off and revealing the “Royal” and “Bred” colors beneath. Is this the coolest thing Nike SB has ever done? Let us know if you’re gunning for these and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates as we near the June 7th release.

Wish they hadn't mis-matched the colorways. It would have been such an amazing shoe if they hadn't done that corny sh*t.
How come the board has no wear on it at all? No white paint (or whatever is on top of the shoe) is on the grip tape.. could just be a new board, but just looks like he just took some fine sandpaper to the upper, hopped on a board and took the pic. (And yes, i know he actually skates)
@DanielSavage Lance Mountain, who is a professional skater, and the designer of this shoe, wore one OG Bred and one OG royal back in the 80s when he was a young skater. It was his trademark. This is his stamp and a dope honor.
@DanielSavage that's why you get both White & Black pairs, bcuz the bred is the Right Sneaker on the White pair & Left on the Black...Royal is on the Left of the White & Right of the Black. That way you can mismatch outer color & rock both Breds at once or both Royals at once! There are 4 different combinations of wearing the pack! The concept is FAR from corny bruh!
@DanielSavage corny or not this shoe is rooted in the Air Jordan 1s roots in skateboarding, hence the trashed look...and mismatch is what skaters did
@qtbigwatts its been revealed since the day they revealed the sneakers themselves.
@qtbigwatts it was already revealed in the promotion pictures a while ago
