As sneakerheads may recall, the very first partnership between Jordan Brand, Nike and Roger Federer resulted in the creation of the Nike Zoom Vapor Tour Air Jordan 3. However, the two debut colorways of this hybrid model were released in rather limited quantities back in 2004 and Roger Federer actually bad for all the sneakerheads who were interested in copping a pair. In fact, Roger felt that the release of both colorways was too limited and was not pleased about it. This time around, perhaps Jordan Brand and Nike might rectify that by dropping relatively more pairs of the brand new, upcoming Zoom Vapor Tour Air Jordan 3 colorway.
On the same day that the Zoom Vapor Tour Air Jordan 3 “Black/Cement” made its retail debut, Nike also released a new video that featured Roger Federer. It was in that video that Roger admitted that one thing he found problematic about the sneaker was that it was limited. There were actually countless sneakerheads who attempted to grab a pair from Flight 23 or NikeLab and not all of them succeeded. At the same time though, Roger also stated that he understood that Nike wanted sneakerheads to go crazy about the Zoom Vapor Tour Air Jordan 3 because of its scarcity and they really did.
Limited release have been a part of sneaker culture for quite a while now, so this new Zoom Vapor Tour Air Jordan 3 might end up joining upcoming Jordan releases 2017 in limited quantities as well. So far, it is being rumored that two new colorways of the Zoom Vapor Tour Air Jordan 3 will be making their way to retailers in the coming months. The first of these is a “Fire Red” colorway that was reportedly going to arrive at retailers back in June 2016, but this never ended up happening. The second is a “Black/White/Jade” colorway that will also hit the shelves later this year.
Currently, there are no photos of either of these colorways, so there is no way of knowing what they will actually look like. However, it is being rumored that the Zoom Vapor Tour Air Jordan 3 “Fire Red” will be a Europe-exclusive that will make its retail debut on August 21st, 2017. As for the Zoom Vapor Tour Air Jordan 3 “Black/White/Jade,” it will be joining October’s Jordan releases 2017.
