I know, I know. Hybrids are a travesty. But I can’t help but admire the quality put into the design of the ‘Metallic’Air Jordan 3Lab5. The very first Air Jordan 3 ‘Flips’ were a sign of things to come for all over cement print and with the instant sell out of the second release, it was a done deal.
The execution on the Metallic 3Lab5s is solid. The suede textured upper hides scuffs relatively well and the thickness of the material does pretty well against creasing. Some waxed laces and a 3M tongue would have been dope but going completely crazy on the cement isn’t such a bad look, especially since all black makes the pattern a little more subdued.
The ‘Metallic’Air Jordan 3Lab5 releases July 26th. Retail is $225.
