Godfather of streetwear Hiroshi Fujiwara himself has just shown off a sample pair of Jordans, in what sneakerheads everywhere will surely covet as the next collaborative grail between the duo: a fragment design x Air Jordan 3.

The pair, seen on-feet of Hiroshi himself, utilizes the vintage silhouette with classic colors rearranged for the unreleased sample. As such, a white deluxe tumbled leather is found as the majority material, followed by panels of black and blue, referencing a palette of the legendary fragment design x Air Jordan 1. Naturally, the fragment bolts are found debossed into the rear heel quarter panel, while the fragment tooling code — often found on collaborations between the brand and Nike — adorns the midsole panel above the air unit’s window. Grey eyestays, white laces, and a blue “NIKE AIR” rubberized branding is found throughout.

According to Hiroshi Fujiwara, the pair is not slated for the public, and stands as such as “not an official release. Just a Sample.”

Hiroshi wore the pair to a Nike event in Hong Kong, where he spoke during the “Nike On Air” panel and revisited a selection of previous fragment x Nike collaborations.

While the pair is currently only a sample, stay tuned for future developments should a fragment AJ3 arise. The last partnership with fragment design is alongside BVLGARI, which sees a collection of luxury bags.
