First rumored in May 2020, the Air Jordan 3 “Cool Grey” was confirmed for the retro treatment by NIKE, Inc. in November of the same year. Ahead of the pair’s tentative February 20th, 2021 release date, the greyscale option has emerged in official images.
Unlike the original from 2007, the forthcoming reissue forgoes a suede upper for a leather alternative. Product shots of both Men’s and Grade School sizing portray the titular “Light Graphite” tone in varying shades, which the latter boasting a darker arrangement. Elephant print finds its way onto the overlays across the forefoot and heel, while “Orange Peel” animates the bottom and upper eyestays. Elsewhere, the citrus hue joins “Sport Red” flair at the heel. Underfoot, sole units mostly indulge in the greyscale color scheme found throughout the upper, but the visible Air Max unit and “JORDAN” branding on the outsole deviate from their understated surroundings.
The Air Jordan 3 “Cool Grey” has been confirmed to launch via Nike SNKRS‘ Exclusive Access program today, February 11th, at 12PM EDT.
