In 2017, leakers like @soleheatonfeet predicted that the Air Jordan 3 ‘Mocha’, last seen in 2001 as a general release, would retro in the summer of 2018. While that didn’t happen, it does look like the shoe is scheduled for a 2018 release.
Sporting a white tumbled leather upper with chrome accents on the forefoot eyelets, the Air Jordan 3 ‘Mocha’ Retro is known for its Dark Mocha elephant print accents at the toe and heel. Those that don’t like the vintage off-white tone the midsoles and heel tabs on original pairs have gotten over the years will get fresh white midsoles with this new pair
The Air Jordan 3 features a heel Air unit embedded within a dense polyurethane midsole.
