Now, all that remains is to wait for the Fragment Design x Air Jordan 1’s retail debut on December 27th, 2014, which is going to happen very soon.
Apparently, Hiroshi Fujiwara had been considering working with Jordan Brand for quite some time. According to Hiroshi himself, he decided to design an Air Jordan 1 because he wears different colorways of the sneaker model quite frequently. He also claims that he has used materials that are quite identical to those that the original Air Jordan 1 was made from. Moreover, he has used a special black for the sneaker’s toe box, apparently the same black hue that has appeared on “Black Toe” Air Jordans.
Hiroshi also mentioned that he somewhat came up with the black and blue color combination for this legit collaboration sneaker out of the blue, just because he felt it would make these kicks look mysterious. The combination of a white leather upper with black and royal blue overlays on top does indeed look unique. Moreover, just like the original, tongue features the “Nike Air” branding and the Fragment Design lightning bolt logo is embossed on the heel. Considering that December 27th, 2014 has been confirmed as the release date of Fragment Design x Air Jordan 1, so grab a pair from sneakeheadclub.com for 400$ before this limited release is sold out.
