First Look: Images of the Nike Air Jordan 3 'Korea' Surface

Just when you thought you were done with copping 3s for the year, this happens. Images have surfaced of the uber-rare Air Jordan 3 ‘Korea’ — a tribute to Korean basketball culture.

Originally spotted on the feet of South Korea national team coach Jae Hur, new pics reveal a colour palette inspired by the white, red, blue and black of South Korean flag. The word ‘Taeguki’ is seen on the right tongue, while ‘Seoul’ in Korean embroidered behind the left tongue. The classic Nike Air logo is featured on the heel, as well as iconic grey/black elephant print on the toe and heel.

Nike and South Korea continue to ,ride the Olympic wave, with the release marking 20 years since the staging of the Seoul Summer Games in 1988.

Unfortunately, the Air Jordan 3 ‘Korea’ is scheduled to release in extremely limited numbers exclusively in South Korea (how much are flights to Seoul nowadays!?). We'll let you know when official info is revealed.
