Earlier today Sneaker News showed you a teaser of an Air Jordan III that featured a never-before-seen khaki suede upper with a black/khaki two-toned elephant print. Here we have a full shot of this curious Air Jordan III, which features a white inner lining as well as a gum outsole – a first for the Air Jordan III. We don’t typically see a lifestyle-based colorway for the Air Jordan III, although it is a bit similar to a khaki-colored Air Jordan Force Fusion 3 that released a few years ago. We’ve got some extra shots for you below so take a look and let us know what you think, and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for more updates. via Fresh Money on NT.

definitely can't say it looks bad...as a fan of JB, not always happy when they change retro kicks with new colorways and materials but i guess if its done nicely like this..i can mess with it.
I'm happy for these shoes some people do get tired of wearing the exact same shoe for the past 20 years only a bum who couldn't dress would hate on these its a modern take on a beloved classic shoe and i must say its quite stylish i would rock both the khaki and denim pair
These aren't terrible. Would rather take the mochas with gum bottoms if they wanted to change something to it.
Never in my life (i had the IIIs in 88) did I think i'd ever pass on a III... these make 3 pair in less than 3 months i won't give a second look at, including the stealths. These John Wayne IIIs are garbage.
didnt think i wud like these, but they actually really work for me. and, just because thy are making new colorsway does not mean they are killing the old ones. there are just as many people hating on jb for over releasing old colorways, so i respect them for trying to take this in a new direction.
hot lava, best thing i seen in a minute, these and the denims seriously need to be released in some type of lifestyle combo pack, definite cop
nice for the fall/winter, not what everybody is used to but look at the mocha's they did good. I'm 80% copping there's a lot on the copping list right now so they'll probably have to hold these till later maybe next year.
with some dark denim jeans, they could look pretty fresh. jb needs to do more lifestyle retro's like these
ok thats enough gotdamnit, i gave the stealths a second look and they of, and they barely got a descent response from them but they need to quit f&&king up the jordan 3. go put all these BS new colors and additions to the nike id setting for the 2k11's. leave these retros alone. SH!T!!!!!!
that's probably what people will say about these 5 years from now when they release a beef n brocoli colorway
