Sneaker customizer EBreez3 has solidified his recent work around the Air Jordan III retro model. Previously we’ve seen his take on Air Jordan’s Tokoyo V theme and Eminem IV design in the life of the AJ III. This time Ebreez3 takes on the look of the Air Jordan XI Space Jam. The pair features an all black upper blacking out the elephant print with a gloss finish and a faux patent leather treatment on the mudguard a la the 11s. The midsoles were matched with a full white out while the flat laces were replaced with those of the round style. Touches of blue on the tongue and heel tab branding complete the look. The gray soles aren’t the AJ XI clear but they suffice for this project considering how hard it would be to find a AJ III clear sole.
Arguably the greatest Air Jordan has yet to be truly bastardized and run into the ground by Nike/Jordan Brand. The silhouette is a classic defining shoe for the brand and greatest basketball player of all time. Recently from either their own imagination, mere coincidence, or because they copied the idea from customizers Jordan Brand has been combining or fusing “Air Jordan Fusions” with Nike Air Force 1’s. Despite the usual ugliness the shoes have sold. Which leads back to the greatest Air Jordan, the XI which have yet to be put into the extremely innovative “Fusion” form. Once again the customizer beat the big boys.
emmanueLabor recently finished up a take at what a Air Jordan XI/Air Force 1 Fusion might look like. And he did superb work keeping the major design elements of the XI and the AF1 intact: panels, tongue, curve of the patent leather, clear soles, and JUMPMAN JORDAN tags on the tongue. At the same time he put in some flare using a 3m reflective upper instead of the ballistic mesh. But if you want a pair he can do you up using that same ballistic mesh. A “Concord XI” is what I wanna see.
