So much has been said and yet words can only do so much to express (our gratitude for) the brilliance of Tinker Hatfield’s Air Jordan III. One way of understanding how much it means to sneakerheads is examining how many custom jobs have been attempted on its familiar lines, the latest of which utilizes one of the year’s most popular textures to wedge itself into the top of the custom AJ3 power rankings. Emmanuelabor’s ‘Python Supreme’ Air Jordan 3 turns one of the leather styles into another jungle animal by way of the designer’s more “exorbitant” take on the recent AJ3-channeling Supreme Dunk Low SBs. One might guess these were built from the ‘True Blue’ based on the Elephant eyestay, but given the unprecedented addition of that famed print on the collar, you could just as easily point to ‘White Cement’ for its ‘blank’-ness. Take note of these details along with the leather lining, artist-specific dubraes and footbeds after the jump below, and let us know what you think with a comment.
