Two NBA basketball players recently laced up in unexpected pairs of the Air Jordan 3. One of them was P.J. Tucker who is now a member of the Houston Rockets roster after recently signing a new contract. Between 2012 and 2017 he played for the Phoenix Suns and during that time he even rocked the Nike Air Yeezy 2 “Red October.” On the recent NBA Media Day 2017 though, he was wearing the extremely rare Air Jordan 3 “Legends of Summer.” Apart from NBA players, Jordan Brand has also dropped a brand new Air Jordan 3 colorway in GS sizes for the small-footed sneakerheads.
In the beginning of this month, Russell Westbrook also rocked a never-before-seen Air Jordan 3 iteration. The photo seen above was shared on Instagram by SneakerReporter (@sneakerreporter). Russell signed a $205 million-worth, 5-year extension contract with the Oklahoma City Thunder on the same day as Kevin Durant’s birthday. That very day, Russell was apparently laced up in this Air Jordan 3 pair that appears to have tumbled leather uppers dressed up in Black with Grey-colored elephant print overlays around its heels and toes. It was also equipped with Orange-colored lace eyelets, clean White-colored midsoles and sleek Black-colored rubber outsoles.
The Air Jordan 3 GS colorway featured here, which has already made its retail debut, is nicknamed “Anthracite,” likely because of its dark and monochrome color scheme. As can be seen, it features suede uppers that are dressed up entirely in a Dark Grey hue, while the elephant print overlays are covered in Black. To give this monochrome and nearly tonal colorway some contrasting, a Metallic Reddish-Bronze hue can be spotted over its lace eyelets and the “Jumpman” branding featured over its heels and tongues. Last but not least, it also appears to be equipped with a combination of White-colored midsoles and Black-colored rubber outsoles.
As has been stated, the Air Jordan 3 GS “Anthracite” has already made its retail debut on October 7th, 2017. Now that it has joined recent Jordan releases 2017, it should still be available at a price of $140 at retailers like Champs Sports, Eastbay, Finish Line, Foot Locker, Kixify and on Nike.com.
