A colorway from 2001 will be joining the Air Jordan releases 2018 scheduled to hit the shelves during the Holiday Season. As you likely know, 2018 marked the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan 3. Jordan Brand recently released the Air Jordan 3 “Chlorophyll” on November 10, 2018. It drew inspiration from and mimicked a Nike Air Trainer 1 colorway of the same that originally made its retail debut back in 1987. As the Air Jordan 3’s 30th anniversary celebration continues, next in line to hit the shelves is its “Mocha” colorway. The Air Jordan 3 Retro “Mocha” is actually making a comeback after 17 years.
Why Is The Air Jordan 3 Retro “Mocha” Returning In 2018?
Jordan Brand originally released the Air Jordan 3 “Mocha” back in September 2001. Surprisingly, the colorway did not gain much popularity at the time. Perhaps this is because its clean White midsoles would become yellow in a relatively short period of time. Despite that fact, the sales of this colorway were decent. Over the recent years though, the colorway has become tremendously popular and its demand has increased to a great extent. That explains why Jordan Brand decided to bring this colorway back after seventeen years for the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan 3. It will be joining Jordan Brand’s Holiday Season collection of Air Jordan releases 2018.

The Air Jordan 3 “Mocha” gets its nickname from the Dark Mocha hue that appears over the model’s elephant print overlays, “Jumpman” branding on the tongues, outsoles, “Nike Air” logo on the heels, and its topmost lace eyelets. As for its uppers, as well as its inner lining, laces, and the rest of its lace eyelets, they are all plain White. It is also equipped with matching clean White midsoles, which will hopefully not get yellow as quickly as the previous version of this colorway from 2001. Moreover, you will be able to cop and rock a pair of this Air Jordan 3 “Mocha” on Christmas.
