AIR JORDAN 3 WILL DEBUT A NEW TRIPLE WHITE COLORWAY

The Air Jordan 3 Triple White is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. So far, every Jordan 3 to hit shelves has flown off, proving that even after 30 years Tinker’s designs are still timeless. Now, we have our first great look at a new Air Jordan 3 colorway for 2018. The Air Jordan “Top 3” recently made its retail debut on November 28th, but there are probably many sneakerheads who were not interested in copping a pair.In recent times, Jordan Brand seems to be taking more and more interest into transforming popular Air Jordan models from the line into performance-engineered baseball and football cleats. In that case, perhaps they will find this all-Black Air Jordan 1 rendition more appealing.The five colorways that hit the shelves back in March sold out rather quickly. Its uppers really are made up of genuine patent leather, dressed up two different tones of Black.This latest release seems like an extension of the earlier one. Its midsoles are covered in White and the same hue also appears on the Jumpman branding that can be spotted on the tongues. This time, it is the “Bred” and “Columbia” colorways of the Air Jordan 11 that have been brought back in the form of high- and low-top cleats.The leather used throughout the side panels appears to be slightly more ‘tumbled’, and the cement patterns around the heel and toe stick out more.

Nike Air Jordan Shoes have already joined this month’s Air Jordan releases 2018.With the most anticipated Retro releases for the year already behind us, we now look forward to the new looks, Jordan will bring, like the new “Triple White” version coming this week. They are currently available at Sportjordans at a retail price of $125.For many sneakerheads, the mismatched coloring of the Air Jordan 1 “Top 3” is perhaps not captivating enough.The Air Jordan 3 is back in 2018.Finally, the shoes can be told apart by their outsoles. 2007’s “Pure Money” pair used a solid white sole, while the 2018 version will return to the translucent bottom. To celebrate one of the greatest Jordan’s of all time, the brand has been releasing coveted colorways like both the original white & black “Cement” pairs. The new “Triple White” Air Jordan 3 Retro is very similar to the “Pure Money” pair from just over a decade ago. Hence, they go for this more ominous version and grab a pair of this patent leather-covered Air Jordan 1 right away at a price of $150 since it is already available.

Better Air Jordan 3: “True Blue” or “Seoul”

Jordan Brand is currently celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the Air Jordan 3 in 2018. For the occasion, there has been a few OG and new colorways that have debuted.

One OG pair that didn’t arrive during its celebration is the “True Blue” colorway, which was last released back in 2016. The remastered version came with “Nike Air” logos on the heels.

Technically, the 2016 Nike Air Jordan 3 will be the second time we see them release, the first of course being in 1988. We saw the True Blue 3 retro for the first time in 2001 which came with the Jumpman branding. We once again saw this pair release in 2011 when the brand celebrated the 23rd anniversary of the shoes. They still came with Jumpman branding, but did have the original style box.

For 2016, the brand will return the True Blue Jordan 3 just like the originals. Featuring tumbled and smooth leather through the uppers, while Blue runs through the mudguard, Nike Air branding on the heel, eyelets and liner. The elephant print is expected to return just like in 1988, which will wrap the heel, toe box and hinted on the uppers. The last details are a White midsole and Grey outsole.

Released in very limited quantities and only available in South Korea, the “Seoul” Air Jordan 3 was one of the newer colorway that arrived in 2018. This special edition release celebrates two sports milestones that took place in 1988: the NBA Slam Dunk contest won by Michael Jordan after taking flight from the free throw line, and the Summer Olympics in Seoul, South Korea.

The Air Jordan 3 Seoul isThe Taegukgi (Korean flag) inspires the shoe’s overall color scheme, with the “taeguk” symbol expressed through the lining and collar’s blue and red and the white upper representing peace and purity (as it does on the flag). 서울 (Seoul) is featured on the left inner tongue, while the 1988 summer games motto 화합과 전진 (Harmony and Progress) is featured on the right inner tongue. The heel reads “Nike Air” in a clear nod to the original Air Jordan 3.

While majority of us weren’t able to get our hands on the “Seoul” Air Jordan 3, if you did have the option of picking one of these to buy for retail, which would it be?

Air Jordan 3 Retro Performance reviews

Hit the jump for full review…

Traction – The traction surface was much like the Air Jordan II, performed well no matter what you were doing. Texture is abundant throughout and the giant pivot point did not hinder their performance at all. Out of the first three Jordan release dates 2018 models, the AJ1 has been the most equipped where traction is concerned but the AJ2 & 3 are well above average.

Cushion – As you already know, my knees and legs cannot handle the cushion. The polyurethane midsoles are far too dense for me and even with an insole swap I was only partially pain-free until a certain point. There is some compression which is good but overall… it’s just not an ideal setup. If you are young, you won’t have much of an issue but for some of us older players, especially older players who can still run quickly, we need to be able to absorb as much impact as possible so our bodies can endure on-court play.

Material – The leather upper is decent enough and has some durability to it. Flexibility of the material itself was actually pretty good and I had no real issues with it. As far as the lighter grey panels… quite possibly the cheapest materials one could find were used and that is where I was irritated. Had I used the Air Jordan 3 True Blue For Sale colorway, this may not have been a problem but this particular version left much to be desired with those panels.

Fit – The areas covered with eyelets were great. I experienced a thorough lockdown from the midfoot to the heel. When moving at a rapid pace and quickly changing direction, the forefoot was unable to handle the torque applied to the materials so that was a slight drawback as you could feel your forefoot slip a bit when enough pressure is used. Overall, I can’t really complain as this is common amongst shoes from the 80’s & 90’s so for what it’s worth, it did its job for the most part.

Ventilation – There wasn’t any… While there are perforations, they don’t puncture through the material completely so they are more for looks rather than serve a purpose. This caused the material to soften up while playing – trapping heat and moisture inside – but again, ventilation wasn’t as popular back in this era so it’s to be expected.

Support – The arch is sculpted providing you with a better fit and support while flexing the foot. I wish I could say the rubber heel cup worked but it wasn’t used as well as it had been in the Air Jordan 2. All things considered, the fit from the midfoot to heel was substantial enough to where this didn’t hinder performance too much as a whole.

Overall – The real killer here is the midsole. Polyurethane is still used today for insoles but rarely for midsoles. Even when being used in today’s footwear, it’s accompanied by some sort of foam which absorbs most of the impact before it reaches the PU insole. Had the cushion been more protective, I think the Air Jordan 3 would have made a very good performance shoe. This is actually a model I’d like to see receive the ‘.0’ treatment… Air Jordan 3.0 anyone?

Basically… if you are young, these won’t hurt you too much. For those of us who have been playing Basketball since we were 11… our bodies have been abused to a point to where we need a bit more out of our shoes than just the ’basics’ at newjordans2018.com
