The Air Jordan 3 sneaker model is one of the most popular and influential models from the Air Jordan sneaker lineage. The shoe was specially designed for Michael Jordan and immediately caused a stir in the sneaker industry because of its unique elephant print covering.
With its looks and technology, the shoe established a high bar for the sneaker and fashion worlds at the time of its debut. The beloved sneaker designer Tinker Hatfield, who created the majority of the Jordan models from the AJ3 to AJ15, designed it.
we see the Air Jordan 3 outfitted with a primarily-white leather upper. The base of the shoe is clad in a white hue, which follows an almost monochromatic scheme.
From there, a “Cement Grey” chimes in at the lacing system, lining and rubber outsole while an elephant print at the mudguard and heel sees black patterning run across a darker grey base. “Midnight Navy” accents the pair at the collar, the Jumpman branding found at the tongue and heel and a portion of the otherwise-white midsole.
The base of the sneakers is kept white and is constructed out of perforated details such as toe boxes, and ankle collars, which are overlaid with smooth white leather.
Is Jordan 3 retro?
The Air Jordan III, which has been re-released as the Jordan Retro 3 regularly since 1994, introduced a new mid-cut silhouette, the unprecedented look of elephant print, and a brilliant young designer to the world of basketball shoes.
Are Air Jordan 3 Good For Basketball?
One could play basketball in an Air Jordan 3, however it is inadvisable when compared to more advanced modern basketball sneakers available. Today’s tech surpasses that of the 80s and 90s with respect to sports performance.
I would put the Air Jordan 3 strictly in the casual category. While one could theoretically hoop in some retro Js, this is nowhere near ideal. I find walking in the Air Jordan 3 is ok, as long as you don’t overdo it. A few miles at a time is fine though.
