Sport Blue Makes Its Way Onto the Iconic Jordan 3 http://blog.finishline.com/2014/08/12/sport-blue-makes-its-way-onto-the-iconic-jordan-3/ http://blog.finishline.com/2014/08/12/sport-blue-makes-its-way-onto-the-iconic-jordan-3/#comments Tue, 12 Aug 2014 18:42:00 +0000 http://blog.finishline.com/?p=29206 Jordan has been letting a lot of heat out of the vault this month, and if there is one thing we’ve learned, it is that Sport Blue sure looks good on our favorite shoes. From the 14’s to the upcoming 6’s, Sport Blue is dominating the sneaker shelves right now, and now there will be a place on one of the greatest basketball shoes ever created, the Jordan 3.

I can’t help but notice that this looks like a perfect blend between two of the most popular Jordan 3 colorways of all time, “Black Cement” and “True Blue.” Those are both considered holy grails to a lot of sneakerheads, so it makes sense that these Sport Blue 3’s are going to be a fan favorite.

There are tons of reasons that the Jordan 3 is iconic, and the elephant print is probably the most recognizable of them. Talk about a design that has influenced an entire culture. It’s hard to walk into the mall and not see elephant print everywhere from other Jordan models to clothing to even other brands!

Yeah, there is no shame in the game of other brands when it comes to jumping on the elephant print bandwagon. “Often imitated but never duplicated.” 

How do you feel about this new edition to the elite Jordan 3 family?

Jordan Retro 3 “Wolf Grey” http://blog.finishline.com/2014/07/12/jordan-retro-3-wolf-grey/ http://blog.finishline.com/2014/07/12/jordan-retro-3-wolf-grey/#comments Sat, 12 Jul 2014 13:41:33 +0000 http://blog.finishline.com/?p=27215 If there is one thing we’ve learned about Jordan Brand this year, it’s that they aren’t afraid to introduce new colorways to classic silhouettes. For years, it seemed like the classics were off limits except when it came to retroing old colorways.

Now out of nowhere, we’ve seen all new colorways from JB. This is exciting news for sneakerheads because we get to see our favorite models with new color schemes.

The brand has also taken some pages out of the books of other classics to come up with new colorways. We’ve seen Infrared applied to a number of models this year, and now we get a Retro 3 in a Wolf Grey. This could have easily been a “Cool Grey” colorway, but regardless of what they call them, they’re straight fire.

In addition to the timeless design that makes up the Jordan 3, we see some new design elements that make this a fresh take on a classic shoe. The elephant print uses a metallic silver paint that makes for a shiny look. We also get an icey clear sole on the three, which is not something we’ve seen many times on a 3.

Who’s feeling this all new colorway? Does it do the Jordan 3 justice?
