Jordan Brand has joined forces with Nike SB to honor the skateboarding legacy of the Air Jordan 1 with the color-shifting Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 High OG Defiant "NYC To Paris". Not long after its debut, skaters began adopting the Air Jordan 1 for its sturdy leather construction, padded collars and unmatched style. These were sneakers that could not only stand up to the rigors of skating, but stand out as well. Nike SB and Jordan have come together to honor that heritage with a color-changing model that highlights two cities with iconic skate styles: New York and Paris.
The premium leather upper is dressed in a black, light bone and sail color scheme representing New York's grittiness that wears away to reveal a hyper pink and crimson twist colorway that embodies the vibrancy of the City of Light. Black laces, tongue, Nike SB tongue tag and Jordan Wings logo remain constant across both colorways, as does the sail sole unit that caps off this radical design.
The Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 High OG Defiant "NYC To Paris" will release this Saturday, May 25th @ 10:00am at the following City Blue locations:
South Street, Philadelphia
Market Street, Philadelphia
Atlantic City, NJ
East Cleveland, OH
North Randall, OH
