Drake’s love for Italian fashion label Stone Island is no secret to anyone. From the rapper’s custom $100k ‘Stone Island’ tour chain, to wearing it so much that many consider him to be the imprint’s unofficial ambassador, the 6 God holds pieces that would make certain collectors weak at the knees, and now, he’s copped himself something that no one will ever own.
Coming fresh from Dominic Chambrone, better known as The Shoe Surgeon, Drizzy was gifted with a pair of custom Stone Island x Air Jordan 12 sneakers. As a masterclass in sneaker recreation, these customs were constructed out of an actual Stone Island jacket, visible around the ridged lacing column and heel counter, as well as a pair of the brand’s denim trousers, seen around the toe box and ring pull.
The Stone Island x Air Jordan 12s have also retained the sleeve cuffs of the jacket from which the rest of its design was constructed, to create an internally set, sock like ankle collar. And of course, what is any Stone Island piece without renowned compass badge? Seen here wrapped around the back of one of the shoes.
Unfortunately, as mentioned before, these Stone Island x Air Jordan 12s were made exclusively for Drake, so they will never, ever see a general release. If for whatever reason they do, we’ll be sure to let you know, but don’t hold your breath. In related news, the KAWS x Air Jordan 4 ‘Black’ has received an official release date!
