Fortunately, guys like JBF Customs can make that happen. His newest creation, which riffs off an Air Jordan 3 from last year, features not only python skin, but also some samplings of shark and kangaroo as proof that he’s dedicated to advancing his craft.

Air Jordan III “5Lab3″

air jordan iii 5 lab 3 Air Jordan III 5Lab3

The Air Jordan 5Lab3 borrows the 3M detailing from the Air Jordan 5. What’s interesting is that that detail isn’t one that was used on the full range of the original Air Jordan 5 colorways, but we’re happy to see this silhouette get such a flashy treatment regardless. As you can see, the shoes cram that reflective silver look all over the upper while still managing to maintain some of their own DNA like the elephant print textures. Continue reading for the latest set of images on the Air Jordan 3 “5Lab3″ and keep it locked on Sneaker News for release info.
