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.
