Michael Jordan has been an inspiration for many of us. He is a legend for not only just the basketball fraternity, but also in the global sports industry. Many of us since our childhood have waited long to get our hands on the shoes and personality he had and with the Air Jordan brand that comes under Nike, we all can eventually get our dreams fulfilled. However, the brand stopped making one of the most sought sneakers in 2014 and shelved the idea till now.
Air Jordan 3 OG True Blue
Size Run: Full Family Size
Color:White/True Blue-Varsity Red
Style Code: 854262-106
Release Date:November 25, 2016
Nike has announced that they would be bringing back the Air Jordan 3 OG “True Blue” for a public release this Black Friday. Over a month to go, the shoes may go for $220 and will be available from November 25.
Anyone who ever wishes to have these Jordans should also be aware of the history and the legacy they hold. Tinker Hatfield, the famed Nike designer, designed the Air Jordan III and it initially came with a Jumpman logo and Air branding behind the shoes to give it a more luxury and premium feel. The first Air Jordan III were introduced in 1994, they were relaunched in 2001 and in 2007, before being revealed for the final time in 2011 and being shelved in 2014. The true blue color has been the most distinct feature of the Jordans and has hooked customers and sports enthusiasts for years. With its relaunch on this Black Friday, it is sure to get sold out within a matter of minutes.
As in the previous iterations and designs, the current Air Jordan 3 OG “True Blue” will retain their legacy of having premium leather that is smooth and tumbled, available throughout the uppers, while the blue color will also run across the mudguard and bottoms. At the back, they will have Nike branding with the traditional 1988 elephant print wrapped across the heel and the upper. All Jordans will have their outsoles colored in Grey and their midsoles colored in Whites. It is a creative design, which sets the Air Jordan apart from any other sneakers available currently.
The OG “True Blue” has always been loved, as they were one of the features that made Michael Jordan’s comeback a decade ago much more pleasing and heart pounding. Other Jordan products that you may like include the revolutionary Air Jordan Hypervenomx and Air Jordan VI Pinnacle, but again they can not match the retro look and distinct tradition of Air Jordan III.
