Prompted by the appearance of an image of the supposed Air Jordan 1 SB, courtesy of Brooklyn Projects' Don DeLuca, the pictured exchange appeared on Twitter between Crooked Tongues' Gary Warnett and Nike Global Design Director James Arizumi.
However, whether deliberately or not, Arizumi's reply of "instarumor" is a little ambiguous. After all, just as many rumours regarding Nike SB have never come to anything, others have gone on to become a reality.
The image itself does appear to have been run through photoshop at some point, but whether that would be to add in the SB tongue tag or just lighten it so that it's more visible, is also unclear. On the other hand, this impression could also have been caused if the photo was taken with a smartphone app.
On thing is for certain, the hype on this possible release is gathering pace and doesn't appear to be slowing anytime soon.
