Mark your calendars and make plans for August 2014. That’s when Jordan Brand will be making their next strategic move to tap consumers’ wallets with two bad-ass blue shoes. The Air Jordan 3 Retro and Air Jordan 6 Retro both get doused with ‘Sport Blue’ (September Blue, if you’re really old school).
The blue hue’s one that hasn’t been seen since the original ’91 release of the 6s but it’s back in pretty close to original form, playing more of an accent role on the model (blue lacelocks FTW!). It’s on the 3s where the color really pops, landing on the Jordan branding, eyelets, sockliner, midsole and outsole, seemingly standing out on top of the black leather upper.
The Jordan 3 Retro comes first on August 16, following the by Jordan 6 Retro on August 30.
