The world of sneakers and that of skateboarding might seem like two parallel lines, but they actually have a lot in common. Although born as basketball shoes, the Jordan 1 became one of the reference shoes in the SB world between the end of the 80s and the beginning of the 90s. Tony Hawk, legend in the world of skate, was one of the first to transport Jordan into another field, stating that the same characteristics that had made the Jordan 1 an excellent basketball shoe were also particularly appreciated by the world of skate and among all , the excellent support that the sneaker gives to the ankle.
Following the Jordan 1 "Lost & Found", Nike wanted to give a "Reimagined" look also to the third Jordan house silhouette, to celebrate its 35th anniversary by giving a new meaning to the concept of "timeless". Once again the goal is to give the sneaker that impression that makes it look like it has just come out of the brand's archives. The retro look is studied in every detail, recalling the 1988 model, of which the "White Cement" color has been revived. Furthermore, the most loyal will be happy to see the return of the "Nike Air" branding which replaces the Jumpman logo.
In honor of the 40th anniversary of the Air Force 1, Nike wanted to go the whole hog, leaving once again all fans and not just speechless. The announcement took place on the official instagram profile of Nike which published the special co-branded package, in which the American giant announced the arrival of the "legendary pair", as it has been nicknamed, in collaboration with the historic jewelry brand Tiffany & Co.
