“I’d never seen 3M before. I saw these shoes and this kind of Jumpman glow . . . “
That’s how the esteemed contemporary British artist Dave White described his first encounter with the Air Jordan V, the sneaker that originally hooked him in. It’s the Air Jordan 1 that DW himself has collaborated on, and in the video interview with Sneakerpedia you’ll see after the jump, White shows off a sample version that had a crazy velcro Swoosh setup intended to accommodate Elephant, speckle, 3M reflective and another choice. Let us know if any of Dave’s personal favorites match up with your own and stick with Sneaker News to see if his Melo M9 or any other future Jordan Brand collabs will release.
