By now, you're probably already aware of the "surprise" that lies beneath the upcoming Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 "Lance Mountain." One "Bred" and one "Royal" colorway are paired together to create a mismatched set that has been painted over in solid black and white. Once you actually wear the sneakers, the paint will begin to fade over time to reveal the O.G. Jordan colorways. Nike SB even revealed the effect in this promo video.
But what if you don't want to wait for the sneakers to naturally fade? What if you just want to see the 1s in all their O.G. glory? Well, there's a simple solution for that: nail polish remover.
Cincinnati-based boutique UNheardofBrand posted a faded pair of the "Lance Mountains" on its Instagram and revealed that nail polish remover was applied to the entire upper to remove the paint.
Sidebar: if you're not down with mismatching, all you have to do is secure both colorways—in the photo, he took one sneaker from each set.
