As 2022 draws closer and closer, we're beginning to get sneak peeks of what's to come next year, including the Air Jordan 3 "Desert Elephant" which we think will be one of the most popular sneakers of the year. Bearing a striking resemblance to the 1988's "Black Cement", here's what we know so far!
While these are literally just mock-ups at the minute, we know for a fact that this Air Jordan 3 will place a massive emphasis on high quality materials. With tumbled black leather dressing the uppers, perforated "Fossil Stone" panels arrive around the ankle and lacing system for a multi-textured look. Rather than sticking with the red from the aforementioned "Black Cement", the "Desert Elephant" opts for contrasting "Rush Orange" tones on the Jumpman and bottommost eyelets.
Classic elephant detailing adorns the front of the shoe and heel, and rounding it all off is a crisp white Nike Air midsole that offers an insane amount of comfort both on the street and on the hardwood court.
Set to land on April 30th, the Nike Air Jordan 3 "Rush Orange Fossil Stone" will be one of the most popular sneakers of Summer 2022 - you heard it here first. Let us know what you think of this upcoming AJ3 colourway, and in related news, Neapolitan ice cream inspires the Air Jordan 3 "Dark Mocha"!
