West Coast rap heavyweight Nipsey Hussle is back in the sneaker world’s headlines again. After a pair of blue “Rich Rollin'” Reebok Classics that turned out to be an unauthorized release surfaced in February causing Hussle to threaten legal action, we now have a look at a special “Victory Lap” Jordan 3 that was designed for the popular artist. The shoe is mostly a classic “Black Cement” Jordan 3, similar in details and material to the 2018 release. However, there are a few tweaks: an embroidered Victory Lap hit appears on the medial side of the heel, and the shoe’s standard grey outsole is replaced with an translucent icy blue iteration—similar to the “Free Throw Line” Jordan 3s—complete with more Victory Lap branding. It’s unlikely that these shoes will ever see a full retail release, but be sure to let us know what you think of the modified take on a classic, and check our Jordan Release Dates page to stay up to date on everything the Jumpman has got going on this year.
