A Sneaker For the Ages The Men’s Air Jordan 3 Retro is one of the most beloved sneakers of all time. Almost any Air Jordan connoisseur will rank the Jordan 3 among their top five favorite models of the entire line. It’s truly one of the most iconic sneakers ever created, and a big reason sneaker culture exists as we know it today. Originally released in 1988, the Air Jordan 3 was designed by Tinker Hatfield, the legendary sneaker designer responsible for many of the greatest Nike and Air Jordan models throughout the years. As the story goes, Michael Jordan was actually considering leaving Nike when his original contract expired, but when he saw Hatfield’s design for his third, he wisely knew that the shoe was something special and decided to renew with the brand. The bold design featuring elephant-print paneling for an exotic and stylish look was like nothing anyone had ever seen on the basketball court before, and the Jordan 3 quickly became a style icon on the streets. All these years later, the third Air Jordan is still considered one of the most fashionable retro basketball sneakers on the planet. A Shoe of Firsts Not only does the Air Jordan 3 look great, but it’s also historically very important to the Air Jordan line, introducing a number of firsts to the Air Jordan series. It was the first Jordan shoe to feature the now-iconic Jumpman logo, placed prominently on the tongue, as well as the first to utilize a visible Air window in the heel. The Jordan 3 also debuted the elephant-print design, a motif that is now synonymous with Jordan Brand. Historic on and off the court, the iconic Air Jordan 3 is available at Foot Locker in all of its latest retro releases, from classic, original colorways to the latest modern looks. But act fast, because when it’s one of the most popular sneakers of all time, pairs don’t last long. Add the essential Air Jordan 3 to your collection today.
