First teased via mock-up in late October, the Air Jordan 3 “Cardinal” has recently appeared through unauthorized, in-hand images.

Just under two years removed from what’ll likely be a highly-visible 35th anniversary, the pair has taken the last year to experiment with handfuls of non-original colorways, among them, A Ma Maniére‘s leading “Sneaker of the Year” candidate. The “Cardinal Red”-accented retro was confirmed as arriving in February 2022 during the Air Jordan Spring 2022 Preview that took place on Friday, December 10th, via the Nike SNKRS app. While far from the collection’s most-anticipated release, the upcoming take on Tinker Hatfield’s first-ever design for Michael Jordan further blends heritage with modern-day flair by following the silhouette’s inaugural color-blocking. The titular shade of ruby arrives at the midsole, collar and tongue lining, eyelets and Jumpman logos on the heel. Elephant print reprises its role in the “Cement Grey” it helped make synonymous with the Air Jordan line. Given that 2022 marks the Air Jordan 7‘s 30th anniversary, it’s possible the similarly-colored version of the model will make a return, ending its 11-year hiatus.

Enjoy images of the sneakers here below, and anticipate a Nike SNKRS launch in February 2022.
