Just before 2022 ended, an ultra rare Air Jordan 1 High OG “Fragment” sample appeared, revealing a 1-of-3 sneaker made with Louis Vuitton Epi leather for Kim Jones. Now, sneaker legend Mayor kicks off 2023 flexing another rare pair of Fragment x Air Jordan 1 Samples on his Instagram.
This sample pair goes for a deeper approach as it covers the Air Jordan 1 upper in Black reptile leather and suede. The entire front half is in stark Black, while the heel counter and ankle eyelets build into Blue suede. The Nike Swoosh also appears in Blue suede, with the embossed reptile print corresponding with the rest of the Blue exterior. The sneaker is finished with co-branded elements, including the Air Jordan Wings on the ankle and the Fragment logo on the heel counter.
