Rookie photo shoots for basketball cards can often produce some interesting on-foot sneaker sightings, as is the case here with Steve Nash in the Nike Air Barrage Low. The bold Air Barrage was most commonly seen on the turf in its mid top version, but here we see young Steve in the low top canvas version. (Would you believe this isn’t even Steve’s best basketball card photo shoot?)

Shaq Diesel is next, sporting one of his last signature shoes with Reebok, the big and bad Dunkmob, complete with his custom higher cut and Instapump technology in the ankle. (Look closely in the background, and you’ll see Jeff McGinnis on the Denver nuggets bench in the Nike Air More Uptempo Olympic colorway.)

Two Nike Basketball on-court classics are next, with Jay Humphries in an awesome white/black/purple colorway of the Air Maestro and Mookie Blaylock in the Air Wayup. We finish up this week with a look at Tony Battie in the underrated Nike Air MZ3. What’s your favorite model spotted in this weeks set of Kicks on Cards?

Legendary skateboarder Lance Mountain has affiliated with Nike SB for a blockhead new accord application the Nike SB x Air Jordan 1.

Wearing a aristocratic dejected AJI on his larboard bottom and white/carolina dejected on his appropriate foot, he embodied the skater appearance of the time — with an added abstraction. That advisedly absurd aggregate would become a acme moment in skate shoe history.

Mountain wasn’t the alone actionable endorsee of the Air Jordan I — added legends in the authoritative proudly wore the shoe in its a lot of iconic Chicago colorway, giving them an alone blow by cartoon and painting on symbols and slogans or swapping the laces for added contrast. The contour became the afflatus for several skate-centric shoe designs that followed, down to the anarchistic use of color.

More accurate with his designs, Mountain chose to accent how skaters of the era altered pairs in adjustment to extend the activity of their Jordans. To actualize accord they would again acrylic over anniversary shoe. The two Lance Mountain Nike SB x AJIs charm this artful by mismatching both a black/red and black/royal colorway in one brace and again accoutrement the colors, DIY-style, with atramentous or white paint. As anniversary brace is beat and the acrylic wears abroad to acknowledge the colors underneath, they will become different to their wearer. Lastly, Mountain created a “Paint shoes not walls” clear that emblazons his attitude on the insoles.

Decades in the making, the Nike SB x Air Jordan I advised by Lance Mountain will be accessible in bound quantities at baddest Nike SB retailers and alpha June 7.
