Air Jordan 3 Desert Elephant
The Air Jordan 3 Desert Elephant is a near-perfect new retro from Jordan Brand. The shape is incredibly impressive, and the leather doesn’t disappoint.
Colorway: Black/Rush Orange-Fossil Stone-Sail
Release Date: July 25, 2022
We see releases of Jordan Brand retros so often it’s hard to count (we don’t have enough fingers lol). Finding one that’s great quality and worth the price tag is even more challenging. We hope the Air Jordan 3 Desert Elephant sparks the change we’ve been dying to see. Everything from the shape to the materials is on point. If they had opted to put the Nike Air branding on the back, these might have earned a 10/10. They rightfully made our Best Retro Basketball Shoes and our Best Nike Retro Shoes lists.
