The Air Jordan 3 is no newcomer to the realm of unique sneakers — Jordan Brand has excelled at making the sneaker culturally relevant over the past few decades through a variety of re-released colorways and fresh new takes. This time, the sports brand is taking it a step further with a brand new women’s silhouette, the Air Jordan 3 RTR EXP Lite.
Taking the OG model and spinning it into an outlandishly unique silhouette, the new model boasts an ultra-high ripstop ankle collar that connects with the nylon upper that’s paired with leather overlays. The newly installed collar is reminiscent of the Air Jordan 3 Explorer XX that was released earlier this year, but this iteration offers a more lightweight alternative for the Spring/Summer months ahead. The new collar also showcases an intriguing lacing system that wraps around the calf area, finishing it off with a button clasp and zipper closure for easy in-and-out access. The rubber pull tab on the heel and the outsole remain true to the original silhouette.
Check out the official images of the first iteration of the model above. Stay tuned as more news surrounding the release date and pricing will be revealed in the near future.
