The year 2014 had brought forth somewhat of a bad news for sneakerheads when it was announced that an Air Jordan model that they coveted a lot would no longer be produced indefinitely. Jordan Brand made the decision that for an undetermined amount of time, no more new Air Jordan 3 sneakers would arrive at retailers, and that duration turned out to be merely two years or so. 2016, the present year, is scheduled to mark the return of not one but two Air Jordan 3 iterations. After a wait, the “Wool” rendition that is to be among December 2016’s Jordan releases dates, has finally been unveiled.
Perhaps the biggest advantages of wool sneakers include the fact that they are not excessively sporty, but are still stylish, well-cushioned and can easily be slipped on. However, wool sneakers happen to be a somewhat of a rarity when it comes to brands like Nike and its subsidiary, Jordan Brand. Many sneakerheads probably cannot even remember the last time either of those two brands dropped a sneaker made out of wool or featuring the use of this material. This year though, apart from the Air Jordan 3 “Wool,” Jordan Brand also intends to drop an Air Jordan 12 “Wool” as well.
Courtesy of Instagram users @iamchickenwop and @zsneakerheadz, sneakerheads can finally get their first look at the actual Air Jordan 3 “Wool.” News about the impending arrival of this sneaker as this year’s Cyber Sunday release was first reported back in March. From the looks of it, its uppers appear to be entirely made up of Grayish-Black wool and have apparently also been revamped, considering that the silhouette seems to be giving lifestyle vibes. As for its midsoles and outsoles, they are both plain White.
It is obvious that this sneaker is among Holiday 2016’s Air Jordan releases, specifically this year’s Cyber Monday iteration from Jordan Brand. Therefore, sneakerheads should know that they will be able to cop a pair of the Air Jordan 3 “Wool” on December 17th for $200 at select Jordan Brand and Nike retailers.
