A new pair of Air Jordan 3 sneakers are set to launch soon and this time around we are getting one of the most unique designs we’ve seen for these. The Archaeo Brown Air Jordan 3 looks like something fresh out of the great outdoors. The nature-inspired design is complemented by various embellishments on the materials in the shoe. It’s something that’s fun to look at, and you’re likely never going to get bored of this pair.
This upcoming Air Jordan 3 shoe is a Winterized version of the classic Archaeo Brown, so there’s some extra comfort to keep you fly throughout the season. One thing you’re bound to enjoy is the water-resistant features and tough suede texture. Even while ploughing your feet through high snow, you’re never going to worry about creases or any irremovable smudges.
In terms of design, there’s a lot to unpack from these Air Jordan 3’s as they have a new material replacing the classic elephant print overlays on the heel counter and toe areas. Meanwhile, there’s a sail midsole and grey outsole underneath. This gives it a nice palette in tonality that acts as a contrast to the prevalent Archaeo Brown all over. Every part of this sneaker is designed with the utmost level of detail in mind.
If you’re already familiar with the fit of Air Jordan 3’s, you’re not going to be getting anything too different with these. A few changes are present, but for the most part the winterized update will be helpful with avoiding any unwanted droplets of water into your shoes.
As one of the most comfortable pairs within the Jordan lineup, the styling for these will be something that won’t need much overthinking. Throw on some minimalistic outfits, wear the most expressive clothes in your wardrobe and they will still shine through. This particular colourway is one that gives off its own identity, so you’re not bound to a “mix and match” mindset when throwing them on.
The sizing is great for folks with wide feet and you’ll be better off staying true to size while wearing this pair. As a retro basketball sneaker, you’re not getting a particularly narrow toe and mid-foot area, so things are going to be perfect for you. If you’ve got narrow feet, going true to size will also be a good decision because these are designed to accommodate a wide range of foot types.
The total colour combo of the Archaeo Brown Air Jordan 3 is pretty impressive and it comprises of the archaeo brown, a dark smoke grey, light Bordeaux, fossil stone and cement grey. Each material has its own unique feel and the complete construction manages to be seamless.
If you’re a sneakerhead looking for a piece to wear regularly, these will do nicely. The material is good enough for multiple wears and you’re not going to be too concerned with creases. The only thing that might affect your inclination to own these will be the pricing. Recently, the retail cost of sneakers have gone up by an uncomfortable amount.
For this pair, you’ll need to part with $210 USD (around R3800) at the Nike SNKRS launch.
