The Fragment Design x Air Jordan 1 remains one of the most coveted – and subsequently expensive – incarnations of Michael Jordan's first signature sneaker on the market. Unless you had some serious luck on your side during END.'s recent surprise restock, the only way to get your hands on a pair of this colab nowadays is to fork over two stacks on the resale market. But if we're talking that amount of cash, you can also get yourself one fine pair of hand-crafted footwear, so Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Brandon LaFell decided to combine the best of both worlds and called upon The Shoe Surgeon to scratch-build a pair of Fragment Design x Air Jordan 1s from the finest materials available.
To make this pair truly special, the bespoke footwear master has combined a menagerie of premium exotic leathers – black shark, white python and blue gator. Finished off with a Fragment Design stamp at the heel, just like its collaborative inspiration, and The Shoe Surgeon branding on the tongue, this is one custom pair of sneakers that will make you question paying insane resale prices on a mass-produced piece of footwear.
While this creation has been specially crafted as a one-of-one piece of footwear for Brandon LaFell, you can contact The Shoe Surgeon to make your own footwear concept a reality.
