Here’s how you can cop the Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 OG ‘LA to CHI’

Posted on May 22, 2019 in Nike

If the past two weeks weren’t enough, let’s add another one.

While Nike SB releases have been few and far between, but the sneaker gods came through with this one. Back in 1985, the Air Jordan 1s ended up on the feet of skaters such as Lance Mountain, Mickey Reyes, and Bryce Kanights as they were great to skate in. Since then, the shoe has been a prominent fixture in skate culture.

Fast forward to 2014, OG skater Lance Mountain collaborated with Jordan Brand for a skate-friendly Jordan 1 that exposed OG colorways of the Air Jordan 1 through wear and tear. Five years later, Nike SB and Jordan Brand bring us the ‘Defiant 1’, a pair of Air Jordan 1s that continue to celebrate basketball and skateboarding culture.

The ‘LA to Chicago’ colorway pays homage to two cities the reflect the pack’s essence. The Lakers’ colors are quite apparent, with the Bulls’ colors revealing over time with wear.

The Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG ‘LA to Chicago’ drops this Saturday, May 25, at Titan with the shoe retailing for Php 8,545. Titan will be offering the pair via an Open Electronic Raffle today (May 22) via their IG link. Make sure to send in your entry now until 4pm.
