Alternate Jordans will continue in 2018.
This year marks the 30th Anniversary of the Air Jordan 3 and, like previous years, we’ll be receiving an “Alternate” version to help celebrate. they’ll be releasing a special edition Air Jordan 3 Tinker NRG model this March.
This is in fact a realization of the sneaker designer GOAT Tinker Hatfield’s early sketch of the Air Jordan 3. Tinker’s original vision for his first Air Jordan shoe did indeed have a swoosh and Nike logos on the upper, but the final product obviously shed the branding for a simpler aesthetic.
The Air Jordan 3 “Tinker Hatfield” is a slight modification of the original “Fire Red” colorway, adding light grey mudguards, black upper midsoles, grey “NIKE” on the medial side, and of course a black swoosh. Tinker’s autograph is emblazoned onto the tongue of as well as the insole, while the famed Nike Air branding returns on the heel.
The limited Air Jordan 3 Tinker “Fire Red” will release on Nike.com on March 24th for $200
