The Air Jordan III has always carried a certain ‘yin-yang’ appeal about it, probably because the shoe is color-blocked in a basic manner. Going back to the original White/Cement Grey and Black/Cement Grey and even the most recent ‘Black Flip’ rendition of the 2007 concept, the ‘reversible’ nature of the Air Jordan III has been evident throughout its entire existence. Take for example the unreleased samples of Khaki-colored suede and blue denim; both of those materials often work in tandem (selvedge denim and suede chukkas is a can’t miss ensemble), so while the mix-and-match approach of sneakers is a bit juvenile, the concept sorta works. The right shoe is in fact the blue denim with contrast stitching, while left is the khaki suede, and obviously the idea never really made into a wide production, but would you say the idea of mixing and matching ‘works’? Check out the detailed shots of this rare Air Jordan sample below and join in on the auction right now by heading to the listing from depeche23mode on eBay.
