1 High Lance Mountain
The Lance Mountain x Air Jordan 1 Retro SB QS pays tribute to The Search for Animal Chin, a 1987 skate video showing Pasadena Pro Skater Lance Mountain wearing an Air Jordan 1 ' Royal ' sneaker on his left foot and a white / Carolina blue Air Jordan 1 on his right. Back then, for its durable leather, strong ankle coverage, and Nike Air technology, West Coast skaters adopted the Jordan. Skaters wore mismatched pairs to extend the lives of their Jordans, sometimes painting them the same color to recreate a uniform appearance. Reviving this DIY aesthetic, the Lance Mountain x Jordan 1 SB features a black / red colorway and a black / royal colorway with a black paint coat that wears away with each ollie and flip trick to produce a design that is special to each skater. Released in limited quantities in June 2014, the sneaker released in a two-pack alongside a colorway given a black paint treatment.
