Air Jordan 3

The Air Jordan 3 is Michael Jordan’s third signature model and is one of the most iconic silhouettes of the OG Jordan line. The shoe originally debut in 1988 and was the first Air Jordan model to implement visible Air units, the iconic Jumpman logo, and the classic elephant print. 

The Jordan 3 was the first Jordan sneaker designed by legendary designer Tinker Hatfield. The original design featured Nike’s swoosh, but the final product featured only the Jumpman logo. 

The Jordan 3 was the shoe Michael wore during the legendary 1988 Dunk Contest as he took off from the free-throw line. Mike would win his first MVP trophy that year as well. 

The Air Jordan 3 is no longer a top-of-the-line on-court performer, but it’s still one of the sleekest and most sought-after models of the Jordan line.
