On Our Radar: Air Jordan 3 Retro 'Infrared 23'
Do these Jordans look familiar? Maybe it's because they look like the White/Cement 3s, or maybe it's because Drake was spotted wearing them during last month's NBA All-Star Weekend. Either way, these retros are actually strikes a perfect balance between nostalgia and modernity, drawing on the original colorway with a combination of smooth and tumbled leather while adding in fresh touches that take the whole look to a new level of aggressive.
The colorblocking is a lot bolder on this edition, with a stark contrast between the bright white outsole and jet black midsole. Grey elephant print along the tip of the toebox and side panels adds some timeless texture while touches of Infrared lend energy on the tongue, metal lace eyestays, air bubble on the heel.
Did we mention these kicks come in all four sizes? Your whole family can look fresh March 8, when they hit Jimmy Jazz stores and the website. Don't sleep on these, either - considering the hype that's been building, they're not going to last long.
Are these going to be your first pair of Jordans for 2014 or are you holding out for a different pair?
