The Air Jordan 1 and the Nike Dunk were never far off from each other; the AJ1 was in fact a continuation of sorts of the Nike Dunk High, and moving forward to the earlier Nike SB releases, plenty were inspired by the Air Jordan legacy – the Supremes taking shape of the Air Jordan III, 2005’s Black/Royal Dunk Low that many dubbed the ‘J-Pack’ for its resemblance to the original AJ1 release of the same colorway, and even the Jordan x Nike SB P-Rod, which used Paul’s first model as a mosaic of all-things-Air Jordan. Hints of a true collaboration between Jordan and SB made headlines when Dom Deluca broke the news, and this first teaser look at the Air Jordan 1 x Nike SB isn’t that far off of what one might’ve expected – an OG Air Jordan 1 given some SB re-tooling. For now, all we see is a Black/Royal colorway sporting a Nike SB tongue label, and but it’s not quite confirmed whether this leaked photo is just a re-creation of what we should expect or if it’s the real deal.
