As Jordan Brand rapidly approaches its 40th anniversary, the label continues to explore all of the intricacies of Michael Jordan’s career and his corresponding lore. One notable superstition of his was that a pair of University of North Carolina practice shorts brought him good luck to each game. Wearing them underneath his uniform during games, even when playing for the Chicago Bulls in the NBA, it was one of his game day rituals.

Now, the Jumpman team is looking to spotlight this fun part of his legacy by crafting a “Lucky Shorts”-themed pair of Air Jordan 3s, according to a new rumor from zSneakerHeadz. While we’ve yet to see any in-hand photos of the pair (a speculative mock-up is depicted above), it’s said to sport a color arrangement of “Summit White,” “Hydrogen Blue,” “Legend Blue,” “Photon Dust,” “Pure Platinum” and “Sail.”

At the time of writing, Jordan Brand has not confirmed whether or not this “Lucky Shorts” colorway of the Air Jordan 3 will be releasing. Stay tuned for updates, including a first look at the pair later this year, as we currently expect the sneaker to land on shelves next spring via Nike SNKRS and select retailers around the $210 USD price point.
