Jordan Brand is set to bring back the Air Jordan 3 “Cool Grey,” one of the most beloved non-OG colorways of Michael Jordan‘s third signature sneaker. First released in 2007 as part of the Jumpman’s lifestlye (LS for short) efforts, the “Cool Grey” combines a subtle base with signature prints and vibrant accents for a look that provides peak ’00s Air Jordan style.
Uppers are composed of gray nubuck, soft in both tone and texture. This is accented with darker steel gray shades around the collar, on the eyestays and heel piece and worked into the signature elephant print on front and rear alike. Pops of flair are served up by “Orange Peel” and “Sport Red” embellishments, the former on select eyestays and the heel’s “AIR” spellout, the latter on both tongue and heel Jumpman graphics. Down below, two-tone gray/white midsoles with an “Orange Peel” air unit and gray/white outsoles with one final Jordan strike complete the look.
Early rumors place the Air Jordan 3 “Cool Grey” release on February 27, 2021, though this has yet to be confirmed by Nike. The retail price will likely be set at $190 USD.
