Jordan Brand continues to strike a healthy balance between revisiting classic colorways and models while pushing the envelope with fresh ideas. Whether it be with new entries in the Air Jordan line or collaborative releases that reinvent the past, there’s always a steady flow of innovation from the Swoosh. However, one of the most popular release styles involves the process of retroing iconic pairs. Pulling from one of the four original Air Jordan 3 colorways, the Air Jordan 3 OG “Fire Red” brings back a legendary look to the model once again.
The most notable element differentiating this retro from the 2007 and 2013 releases is the Nike Air logo at the heel. While the previous two releases used the Jumpman logo, the original favored the Nike Air logo and its return is sure to be welcomed. Aside from that, the rest of this recreation is standard with its white leather upper, red accents at the midsole and heel, hits of gray throughout and signature elephant print included at the toe cap and heel.
Look for the Air Jordan 3 OG “Fire Red” to return to shelves August 6 via Nike and select retailers at a price of $210 USD.
In case you missed it, three more colorways of the Tom Sachs x NikeCraft General Purpose Shoe have surfaced.
