When it comes to designers, few are as formidable as Hiroshi Fujiwara. As one of Japan’s most influential figures, Fujiwara has been influencing the world of streetwear for close to 30 years. Over the past few weeks, Fujiwara has also been teasing the sneaker community with a number of unreleased samples. From Nike to sacai and almost everything in between, Fujiwara does not mess around. After giving us a glimpse of an AJ3 sample last week, we now have detailed images of the shoe.
Spotted on Fujiwara’s feet, the sneaker is a simple take on the Air Jordan 3. This fragment design Jordan features a white tumbled leather base as well as black leather on the mudguard and heel. A set of white laces and a white Jumpman adorn the tongue, whilst contrast white stitching adds to this sneakers monochromatic vibe. However, it is the fragment branding, both subtle and bold, that has really got Jordan fans excited.
The famous fragment design thunderbolt can be seen on the heel, whilst the style code rests just above the midsole. On the tongue, a small “fragment” can be seen, replacing the traditional “Air Jordan.” Of course, the heel tab is the real star of the show on this fragment design x Air Jordan 3. The large thunderbolt sits underneath a transparent heel tab which features a Jumpman and “Air” on the back. Bringing this fragment Jordan to a close is a white midsole and sole, rounding off a well-crafted collaboration.
Rumoured to drop during the Fall 20 season, the fragment design x Air Jordan 3 “White/Black” is already causing a lot of hype. You can expect these to hit select retailers before the end of the year, with a price yet to be confirmed. Check out the images below and let us know if you’ll cop these fragment design Air Jordans.
