Hiroshi Fujiwara and Travis Scott are making use of a “fragment” of their imagination with their upcoming Air Jordans 1 High
, stringing together both their color prowess and style for one of the
most exciting collaborations of the year. And if you’ve yet to enter any
raffles (which I doubt), you might want to get to it because these
officially release tomorrow.
Creatively, the fragment x Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1 High bears the
DNA of both partners in equal parts. The colorway — a specialty of
Fujiwara, 1/3 of the revered but unfortunately defunct HTM sub-label —
ostensibly references the signature palette of past fragment offerings.
Royal Blue touches up the ankle flap, heel, and toe box, while blacked
out Swooshes, logos, and the like sit both atop and adjacent. Then, in
heavier contrast, the rest of the forefoot and midfoot outfits
completely in white, complementing the midsole’s cream finish.
Structurally, the pair runs replete with La Flame’s signatures: stash

While not largely deviating from the arguably-stale design first introduced by Kanye West in 2016, the upcoming Yeezy 350 V2
introduce a refreshing pattern across its Primeknit upper. Marble cake
pattern-reminiscent streaks run throughout the entirety of the sneaker’s
top-half, with shades of grey and brown contrasting their stark-black
backdrop. Profile stripes forgo their usual semi-translucent makeup in
favor of a solid dark composition that matches the canvas pull tab at
the heel. Elsewhere, collar lining, laces and ribbed midsoles all opt
into the predominantly black aesthetic, while visible BOOST foam across
the sole unit deviates in its standard white hue.
