The Air Jordan ‘Pantone’ Samples that hit the Sneaker News wire a few months back certainly opened our minds to just how many colorways haven’t been done on Air Jordans. Realistically, the possibilities for colorway are truly endless, and as long as the Air Jordan remains atop the list of influential labels in contemporary fashion, Jordan Brand will continue to explore these off-centered options. The Pantone Samples are just laser-less versions of the ‘For The Love Of The Game‘ showcase from 2010’s World Basketball Festival, and while some prefer to stay true to the Chicago Bulls era of the Air Jordan, there’s a population of hardcore collectors who want and need anything with the Jumpman on it – even this slightly pre-owned pair has live bids that have eclipsed the $1,000 mark. More shots of this sample below, so take a look and record the auction from youbetshop on eBay.
they are alright but i wouldn't mind seeing the part where the elephant print would be like the Doernbecher 3s (of course still using the same shade of blue), that would be chill
they should make the elephant skin "lasered" like the other lasered pantone collection.... like the 11's or 14's
