The Lance Mountain x Air Jordan 1 Retro SB QS pays homage to the 1987 skatevideo, The Search for Animal Chin, which showcases Pasadena Pro Skater LanceMountain wearing an Air Jordan 1 Royal sneaker on his left foot and awhite/Carolina blue Air Jordan 1 on his right. Skaters adopted the Air Jordan1 for its durable leather, high ankle coverage, and Nike Air technology. Toextend the life of their shoes, skaters wore mismatched pairs and sometimespainted them the same color to recreate a uniform look. Inspired by this DIY-aesthetic, the Lance Mountain x Air Jordan 1 Retro SB QS features a black/redand a black/royal colorway with a coat of black paint that wears away witheach trick, creating a design thats unique to the individual skater. Releasedin limited quantities in June 2014, the sneaker dropped in a two-packalongside a colorway given a treatment of white paint.
