Get an Eyeful of the Air Jordan 3 'Dark Iris'
Release: 18 June 2022

Style Code: CT8532-105

There's a strong case to be made that the Air Jordan 3 is the most important shoe in the entire Jordan Brand lineage – it's the model that saved Michael Jordan's relationship with Nike and brought Tinker Hatfield into the Air Jordan fold, after all – and although it's far from its heyday as a culture-shifting performance hoops sneaker, it's a lifestyle favourite that's on quite a hot streak in 2022. After the recent release of popular 'Muslin' and 'Cardinal' colourways, the AJ 3 is set to keep things rolling later in the year with a just-revealed 'Dark Iris' makeup, seen in pictures provided by @brandon1an and @znsneakerheadz.

The 'Dark Iris' isn't the kind of style that reinvents the wheel, but there's really no need to tinker (pun intended) with a legendary sneaker like the Air Jordan 3. Its time-honoured combination of a tumbled white leather upper, dark grey/black elephant print and a large black Jumpman logo on the heel is given a pop of floral flair by the eponymous 'Dark Iris' hue, which appears on the rear of the midsole and around the collar – as well as on the insoles, top and bottom eyestays and the trim around the tongue's embroidered Jumpman graphic.

Look for the Air Jordan 3 'Dark Iris' to release on June 18, pending official confirmation from Nike. It'll be priced at $200.
