Nike SB’s string of Air Jordan 1 releases is not slowing down quite yet, as Eric Koston broke out a second special edition new colorway earlier this week. The new look drops the top on the classic Jordan 1 High “UNC” to mimic a pair from Koston’s childhood, and arrives in stores next week.

We’ve seen quite a few Nike SB-branded Jordan 1s in the past few months, and all of them have been smash hits. After the initial team up between Jordan Brand and SB, which saw the Jordan 1 High releasing with color-changing uppers, the two teamed up again for Eric Koston to deliver his own take on the Jordan 1 Low, which he modeled after the Japan-exclusive Jordan 1 Mid “Midnight Navy” from 2005. Now, just a few weeks after the release, Koston has teased another special take on the low-top Jordan with his name attached. This time around, Eric is taking inspiration from the Jordan 1 High “UNC”, a release he missed out on when the Jordan 1 first dropped. In the product story, Koston remembers staring at the shoes on a clearance rack, in a topless box, with his mom sternly reminding him that the shoes he already had were fine. Needless to say, this hurt him as a child, thinking that $24.99 wasn’t too excessive for a pair of shoes. Now, that price tag is reflected on the inner tag of the new silhouette.


Nike SB’s string of Air Jordan 1’s continues next week with the release of Eric Koston’s Air Jordan 1 Low “UNC” on August 12th, 2019. The second model to release with the Nike SB logo on the tongue, these Lows will retail for a cool $110, and will likely release from Nike SB skate shops along with a few select boutiques. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more Jordan 1 release news.
