When MJ’s first signature shoe landed in stores in 1985, the high-top silhouette was quickly co-opted by a legion of skate rats who were looking for a sneaker that delivered ankle support and cushioning, along with an added dose of style. Nearly three decades later, Jordan Brand gives official recognition to its kick flipping brethren by partnering with Nike SB on a skate-specific edition of the Air Jordan 1. It’s previewed here in this teaser image, which showcases a classic high-top silhouette worn by Paul Rodriguez. Stay tuned for a close-up look, and expect the kicks to hit stores March 15th.
