Hiroshi Fujiwara‘s fragment design has presented the world of sneakers countless classic collaborations. Most notably, the label’s work on the Air Jordan 1 has caused crazes throughout the world. In September, Fujiwara was spotted courtside rocking an unreleased colorway of fragment’s take on the Air Jordan 1 Low with Travis Scott. Now, a previously unseen fragment design x Air Jordan 1 sample from 2014 featuring Louis Vuitton Epi leather has hit the net.

Reportedly limited to three pairs in existence and designed for Kim Jones during his tenure as creative director at Louis Vuitton, this pair is one for the archives. Its design flips the original fragment design x Air Jordan 1 High from 2014, this time including a premium finish that features Louis Vuitton’s own Epi leather. The result is an upper that features intricate linework throughout, alongside fragment’s signature stamp at the lateral of the heel counter.

Considering the age of these samples and expensive nature of their production, alongside Jones’ departure from Louis Vuitton, it’s extremely unlikely another pair will ever be produced, let alone hit shelves.

In other footwear news, Nike has finally officially revealed the DJ Khaled x Air Jordan 5 in “Sail.”
