If you missed the US release of the Jordan Retro 3 Flyknit and don’t want to resort to paying resale, you get another shot this weekend. On Saturday August 18th, a few retailers will release the all-black flyknit variant of the classic Jordan 3.
1 year ago, Jordan donned the Retro 1 in a flyknit upper. Now they’re giving the 3 a look. It seems they skipped the 2, and that’s just fine by us. While the first two colorways, Bred and Royal, did exceptionally well, the hype fell off. It’ll be interesting to see if Jordan decided to bring OG colorways to the Flyknit Jordan 3 as well. These kicks feature an ice blue translucent sole and elephant print knit toe box and heel cup. The grey market is also flooded with UA versions further muddling both market value and and reliability. With so few locations stocking this release, it may be a gamble to grab a pair.
