Back in 2014, Usher unveiled an ever-luxurious take on the Air Jordan 3, a PE that saw the silhouette dressed head to toe in gold patent. And, despite rumor of there being only 10 in existence, English Sole was able to track down a pair after a likely exhaustive search.
Thanks to the sneaker collector, the pair is pictured in a detail that wasn’t available years prior. Its patent leather construction shines as if actual gold, same as the accents that lay over top. Even the elephant print at the overlays are treated similarly, the cracks now less pronounced as they provide a subtle, textural complement. At the top line, three stars are embroidered along the tongue while the inside bears not only premium black leathers but also Usher’s name in boldened embossing.
Grab one of the best looks at the samples below, and if you’re looking for something far more attainable, then the Air Jordan 4 Fire Red may be of interest to you.
