After finding out earlier this year that Jordan Brand created the Air Jordan Kobe Pack that featured the Air Jordan 3 and Air Jordan 8 in Lakers colorways, we were all excited hoping that maybe we would be able to get our hands on a pair. But as more and more time passes it’s starting to feel like they were only given out to friends and family of the brand.

Sneaker customizer Jack The Ripper decided to take matters into his own hands and created an extremely luxurious version of the Air Jordan 3 Kobe PE. This custom Air Jordan 3 that we see above features a matte white python upper with genuine elephant placed on the toecap and heel. A gold lamb liner and additional gold accents on the tongue branding provide a pop while hits of purple complete the Lakers theme. Additional details include¬†purple suede insoles which have¬†“1996-2016” printed in gold to commemorate the Black Mamba’s amazing 20 year career in the NBA, and Nike Air heel tabs provided by @beat2heatrestorations. This Air Jordan 3 Kobe PE custom will be releasing in October via Jack The Ripper’s web store.

What are your thoughts? Are you feeling this custom Air Jordan 3 covered in python or do you prefer the original?

Wow! These are so nice that I don’t think that I would even wear them. I would just put them up on display in my room. Great custom by Jack The Ripper!
