The recent fresh prince grapes actually used the OG material around the collar.. looking at the pics of these I don’t think it’s the same. This porous looking material around the grapes collar is what the entire OG fire reds were made of.
Yes I believe that porous material is the OG durabuck, for some reason on the grapes they just have it around the collar, then most of the rest of the shoe is regular leather. But on the fire reds basically the whole shoe is that material.. Heres a pic of some OG black tongues for reference... you can see how it’s all that porous durabuck
So in other words, Nike/JB had/knew how to make this material ALL of these years? They just choose not to use it. It figures. SMDH
