In the Summer of 2014, Southern Florida’s SoleFly collaborated with Jordan Brand on an Air Jordan 3 designed exclusively for friends and family. It has since gone on to be one of the most coveted collector items for Jordan fanatics, and given it’s extremely tight seeding list, acquiring a pair has proven to be the equivalent of winning the lotto itself. Four years later, Carlos Prieto of SoleFly is bringing back his famed color concept onto a brand new Jordan silhouette that was directly inspired by the AJ3 – the 88 Racer. Limited to just 223 pairs, the SoleFly x Jordan 88 Racer makes use of the beach-front Miami atmosphere given off by the hits of orange and pink, while a flamingo logo at the tongue further emphasizes the leisurely vibes. The same insoles from the Air Jordan 3, complete with the shop logo and numbered ping-pong balls, make their return.
Again, just 223 pairs will be available in-store at SoleFly Cutler Bay on August 25th. A limited online release will occur on Wednesday, August 29th at 11:15 pm EST, simultaneous to the announcement of the winning numbers of the state’s lottery. See the first look just below, and read more about the Jordan 3 Lottery here.
Update: Each sale will come with a special lottery-style scratch off to win prizes ranging from t-shirts to one pair of the highly-touted Solefly x Air Jordan 3 “Lottery”.
