While not as ubiquitous as the Air Jordan 1, the Air Jordan 3 has still managed to have some major moments this year with the reincarnation of its “Cool Grey” colorway as well as a well-received collaboration with A Ma Maniére. And now to start July off on the right foot, the classic silhouette is being brought back to the stage to be proffered in a sporty “Racer Blue” colorway.

Most of the classic design cues that are signature to the Jordan brand model are kept including that of the premium white tumbled leather that makes up the upper along with the classic elephant print. The latter, however, is slightly modified as it’s been dialed down to a darker charcoal gray. From there, the “Racer Blue” accents stand out overtly across the perforated collars, Jumpman logos on the tongues and heel counters as well as on the eyelets. More tinier notes of contrast are visible through the lighter gray hits that drop off on the lining and, mid-foot and lower throat.

You can check out a closer look at the pair here above and find them dropping in full family sizes via SNKRS and select retailers.
