An Icon for All Ages
The Air Jordan 3 is one of the most celebrated and beloved sneakers of all time, so it’s only right that sneakerheads of all ages have a chance to wear a pair. The Boys’ Air Jordan 3 Retro features the same unmistakable design of the men’s edition, sized down for the younger generation of Jordan sneaker fanatics. Everything you know and love about the original Air Jordan 3 from 1988 is there: the full-grain leather upper, signature plastic shoelace eyelets, large Jumpman branding on the tongue, a visible Nike Air unit in the heel, and of course, the iconic elephant print paneling that wraps the toe and heel.
A Historic Legacy
Legendary Nike designer Tinker Hatfield truly created a sneaker for the ages with the Air Jordan 3. In fact, his bold design for the Jordan 3, which introduced the exotic elephant print to the Air Jordan line, helped convince Michael Jordan to extend his contract with Nike when the young superstar was considering moving on to another brand in 1988. One look at the design, and MJ was ready to stay put with the Swoosh. Without Hatfield, the course of sneaker history could be drastically different today. This retro edition honors the legacy of the original, recreating the timeless style of the original Air Jordan 3 for modern times. The Boys’ Air Jordan 3 Retro is available in a variety of original colorways that Jordan made famous on the court in ‘88, a well as all-new color combinations and materials imagined by the Jordan Brand designers of today. While most available colorways are sized-down editions of the men’s releases, select colorways of the Boys’ Air Jordan 3 Retro are exclusive to kids.
