Jbf And Hypebeast Offer A Snakeskin Take On The Air Jordan 1

Date: May 25 2016

JBF Customs and Hypebeast have formed a sneaker alliance. The partnership is based on fostering originality, as the two posit that a saturated market 'filled with mass-produced pieces and “special” releases' can make it hard to distinguish your foot-game from other punters. Fair. Their partnership opts to fight fire drops with fire drops – it's just that theirs will be of the super-limited variety. And we have to say – if every release is of the same calibre as this Air Jordan 1 look-a-like, then we're on board.

JBF Customs have dressed this AJ1 homage in scales, chopping up exotic skins across the underlays and overlays. Lengths of segmented python skin fall across the majority, bedecking the the upper in red. While the dyed black shark skin provides contrast on the Swoosh and collar. Sure, while sharks and snakes don't rock together in the wild – we think it's a perfectly natural relationship.

This JBF x Hypebeast concoction can be found from HBX online from May 23.
