After being recently reinterpreted by the Atlanta shop A MA MANIERE (article available HERE), the timeless Air Jordan 3 silhouette is dressed for the first time in the famous « Cardinal » colorway.
This color scheme is a Jordan Brand classic, known for being used on another flagship silhouette : the Air Jordan 7. Originally released in 1992, the last version of this pair was in 2011.
So after 10 years of absence, this colorway reappears on the AJ3 silhouette.
According to the rumors, the shoe comes in a combination of white, Light Curry, Cardinal Red and Cement Grey. It consists of a white leather upper with signature Elephant Print overlays and Cardinal Red accents that add flair to the design. These are found at the upper eyelets, inner lining and heel clip. To complete the look, the Jumpman logo on the tongue and lower eyelets are accented with ochre or bronze yellow. The whole is based on a white midsole paired with a grey rubber outsole.
The Air Jordan 3 « Cardinal » is set to release on February 24, 2022 at select retailers and nike.com for 200$. We’ll be sure to keep you updated with the latest official details, so stay tuned !
