Jordan Brand has dug deep into the legendary Tinker Hatfield’s design archives for inspiration multiple times this season, releasing a handful of classic Air Jordan models with colorways inspired by the footwear architect’s most iconic Nike creations. Next up for a special “Tinker” makeover? The Air Jordan 3, in a “Chlorophyll” iteration that’s inspired by Tinker’s 1987’s Air Trainer 1s. A light grey and white leather upper boasts bold black and chlorophyll green accents — the former on the heel and toe elephant print, the latter on the eyelets, hang tag and tongue/heel logos — and is then finished off by a two-tone black and white midsole, green heel Air Max unit, and grey outsole. As Hatfield designed every Air Jordan from the AJ3 to the AJ15 — and select later models as well — this double homage of sorts is an interesting way to pay respect to both of the classic sneakers and bring an old-school aesthetic to market in 2018 with a fresh new style. These new Air Jordan 3s are releasing November 10th for $190 USD, so check out a Where To Buy list below if you’re looking to secure a pair for your collection.
