Even if you’re a world-renown artist, you have to get a little excited when one of your favorite brands asks you to design a shoe. Self-proclaimed Jordan fanatic Dave White, who is well-known not only in the world of sneakers, but in the worldwide art community, got a chance to design the Air Jordan 1 earlier this year as part of the Jordan Brand WINGS For The Future charity, where 23 pairs were sold at auction. Part II of the Dave White x Air Jordan 1 has been all but confirmed, so as we’re patiently waiting for some concrete release information for the shoe, here’s another look at the Air Jordan 1 re-imagined by Dave White; it combines ‘signature’ with ‘signature’ as it features elephant print on the outer foxing with White’s trademark paint-splatter and star detailing on the upper, with a ‘Dave White for #23’ tag on the inner face of the tongues. Check out the gallery below and if you’re wondering what the asking price for the current available pairs are, hit up the auction from shamm12 on eBay.
