Air Jordan 3 (5lab3)
Last year the Jordan Brand introduced the 'Elements' series, which would boast new releases that splice the DNA of two fan favourite Jordan shoes. The first thing the Jordan scientists cooked up in the petri dish was the Air Jordan 3Lab5, which borrowed the immortal elephant print from the Air Jordan 3 and slammed it on an AJ5 to big success. Now we see the reverse of that creation, with the Air Jordan 3 serving as the base silhouette for some elements that made the Air Jordan such a special release at the time, including icy outsoles and a heck of a lot of reflective detailing. The Air Jordan 3 5lab3 will begin hitting shelves this Saturday, March 29th at select Jordan brand retailers including Atlanta's Wish.
