Arguably the most iconic basketball shoe ever made, the Air Jordan 3 has been a fan favorite ever since its initial release in 1988. The AJ 3 was a game changer in the Air Jordan sneaker line for a number of reasons. Designed by the legendary Tinker Hatfield, the Air Jordan 3 raised the bar when it came to the production of basketball sneakers. It was the first Air Jordan to feature the “Jumpman” logo, the first to utilize Nike’s Visible Air Unit, and the first to sport elephant print along the upper. With MJ’s phenomenal skill level and Tinker’s keen sense of innovation, the Air Jordan 3 helped launch Jordan as a brand into a league of its own.
