Nike and Jordan Brand are known for borrowing design elements from each other. Tinker Hatfield has created shoes under both labels and he is responsible for the latest sneaker that oozes crossover appeal.
After working on silhouettes like the Air Jordan 11 and the Nike Air Max 1, Hatfield is now doing something unique with the Air Jordan 3. The sneaker specifically borrows from the color scheme of the Air Trainer 1 “Chlorophyll”.
Jordan Brand’s use of the Air Trainer 1 is no surprise. It has been a big part of their collection this year, with its influence clearly seen in the collaborative Just Don machine.
The AJ3 shows off a smooth grey upper accented by a vibrant green shade on the Air unit and eyelets. There are also whites and blacks in the color scheme that provide a nice contrast.
The familiar-looking Jordan 3 will drop on November 10 and it will retail for $190
