Nike SB and Jordan Brand have announced a collaboration between the two that will surface next month. While the connecting of the two labels — they are both under the Swoosh umbrella — is nothing unexpected, it will be very interesting to see the outcome, given Jordan brands limited past involvement in skateboarding. Amongst the details provided is the release date of March 15, and an image of highly coveted skater Paul Rodriguez mid-air on a basketball court. If you look closer at the image, it appears Rodriguez is adorning a rendition of the Air Jordan 1 with a simple black upper and white sole. We’ll keep you posted in the coming weeks prior to the launch of the collaboration.
