[UPDATE: December 27, 4:30 p.m. EDT]: In response to this story, Hiroshi Fujiwara has responded with the following comment: “I have never seen this before. Lol.” The fragment design founder is denying the legitimacy of the purported Air Jordan 1 x Fragment “Black Toe.”
Read our original story below.
The original fragment design x Air Jordan 1 that dropped back in 2014 in the classic “Black Toe” scheme with Royal Blue is notably one of the most coveted Air Jordan silhouettes ever.
While retro variations of the classic Air Jordan 1 silhouette in the favorable black and red color scheme have released in the past few years, most recently in 2016, this purported “Black Toe” edition is rumored to be releasing sometime in 2019.
Samples of the fragment x Air Jordan 1 “Black Toe” have already been produced, and the style retains its iconic profile with the utilization of the Chicago Bulls’ signature colors: Black, Varsity Red, and White, in a color block layout across the shoe’s premium leather construction. In addition, while the OG AJ 1 “Black Toe” incorporates black tongues, this upcoming pair maintains white-colored tongues compared to previous retros of the AJ 1 “Black Toe.” Lastly, the iconic “Nike Air” branded tongue labels and fragment design’s embossed insignia on the heel solidifies its stylistic elements.
Stay tuned for more details and in other sneaker news, Virgil Abloh confirms his Nike “The Ten” collab is coming to an end.
