Way ahead of time Nike Air reveals its special Black Friday release for 2016: the “True Blue” Air Jordan 3s. The OG edition (pictured above) with its white upper, elephant print mudguard and electrifying royal blue accents hasn’t been reissued since its original release in 1988, complete with its Nike Air branding on the heel (the 2003, 2009 and 2011 Retro versions had the Jumpman logo). Jordan Brand has also been quiet with the 3s in recent years. Remember the Air Jordan 3 Retro “Sport Blue” from 2014?

Watch for the Air Jordan 3 Retro “True Blue” to hit stores November 25.
