By now, likely everyone reading this already knows that is the 30th Anniversary of the Air Jordan 3. Jordan Brand’s running shoe, the Zoom Tenacity 88, resembles the Air Jordan 3 to a greater extent, even having borrowed its signature elephant print overlays. Hence, it was not surprising that Jordan Brand to drop the Zoom Tenacity 88 back in mid-March in two very popular OG colorways of the Air Jordan 3, the “Black/Cement” and “True Blue.” The Jordan Zoom Tenacity 88 is set to join upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018 too, in an OG colorway of another sneaker that was designed by Tinker Hatfield back in 1987.
In case you have not figured it out already, the “88” is a reference to the year in which the Air Jordan 3 debuted. Both the Jordan Zoom Tenacity 88 “Black/Cement” and “True Blue” became available at Nike.com on March 14th, 2018 at a price of $125. During Justin Timberlake’s “Legends Of The Summer” tour back in 2013, he received three special Air Jordan PE iterations from Jordan Brand, all of which were dressed up completely in Red. During his more recent, “Man Of The Woods” tour, when Justin Timberlake performed in Chicago, he was spotted laced up in an all-Red colorway of the Jordan Zoom Tenacity 88.
Instead of a previous Air Jordan 3 colorway, the Jordan Zoom Tenacity 88 featured here has actually borrowed the original colorway of the Nike Air Safari. In fact, it could almost be mistaken for the Air Safari, considering that the elephant print on the overlays has been replaced with the signature safari print. It is also dressed up in the same Black, Clay Orange and White color scheme. The “Jumpman” logo can be spotted on both the heels and the tongues, while the “AIR” branding usually seen on the heels seems to have been replaced with “RUN,” signifying that it is a running shoe.
Currently, there is not much confirmed and/or official release information available about this sneaker, other than the fact that it will be joining upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018 very soon. It is being reported though that this Jordan Zoom Tenacity 88 “Clay Orange/Clay Orange-Black-Tan/Beige” will make its retail debut on Nike.com and at specific overseas retailers.
