The Air Jordan 3 Racer Blue is a hot new take on a classic from 1988. Utilizing the original color blocking of the Air Jordan 3 Retro Fire Red, this gives us a blue version of the shoe. Another twist from Jordan Brand is that the elephant print is made out of 3M reflective material that only reveals the elephant print with light. Some people will like it, some won’t, but they still made our list of the best retros of the year. You’ll have to decide for yourself.
