fragment design x Air Jordan 3 Sample

Hiroshi Fujiwara was in Hong Kong and stopped by a Nike to give a talk. The fragment design founder was seen in a pair of Air Jordan 3 samples in the same colorway as the Air Jordan 1 that released back in 2014. There is no word on whether this will release but the detail shots taken by HK-Kicks shows that it has Nike Air on the back and a styling code on the outer heel that starts with "SU17" which could mean they were created back in Summer 2017.

The three scents in the collection are "Sun Song" with hints of orange blossom ($360), "Cactus Garden" with fresh cucumber, bergamot and lemongrass ($250) and "Afternoon Swim" featuring orange, mandarin and bergamot ($250).
