Without a shadow of a doubt, Hiroshi Fujiwara's fragment design x Air Jordan 1 High from 2014 is one of the most iconic AJ 1s ever made. Painted in a blue, black, and white color scheme, it's regarded by many sneakerheads as one of the most memorable palettes in history. With all that said, it looks like things could have looked extremely different as we take a sneak peek at the fragment design x Air Jordan 1 High "Croc."
Unveiled by hardcore sneakerhead Mayor, who has been in the game for almost four decades, this rare rendition is just one of the many samples that Nike and Fujiwara worked on before getting to the final product. Working on top of a slick "Black" base, it's overlaid by "Royal Blue" panels across the ankle, heel, and Swoosh for that unmistakable fragment aesthetic. The legendary winged basketball and lightning bolt logos are finely debossed on the collar and heel, respectively, and of course, you can't talk about this shoe without mentioning the faux croc finish that looks as premium as it gets.
While we're positive that the fragment design x Air Jordan 1 High "Croc" will never see the light of day, if it does, you'll find it on Ox Street's dedicated Air Jordan 1 page right here. Let us know what you think of this pair, and while you're here, you might as well take your first look at the Air Jordan 1 High OG "Vibrations of Naija"!
