Jordan Brand will be celebrating all-things Air Jordan 3 in 2023 as the silhouette commemorates its 35th anniversary. But it won’t just be the model in question that’s in on the event, with this new Air Jordan 1 High OG “Elephant” honoring Tinker’s iconic use of exotic textures.
the pair will form part of the brand’s Spring 2023 schedule, alongside a detailed description of the release. You can expect to see the pair arrive in classic Chicago blocking, with white leather uppers and color-matched nylon tongues, along with black collars and Swooshes. Its overlays arrive in the titular texture; a classic grey and black scheme that harness the overarching monochrome make of the release. Underfoot you’ll find a simple sail and grey sole unit to complete the design.
This isn’t the first Air Jordan 1 High to sport the Air Jordan 3’s signature texture, with 2016’s Air Jordan 1 High “Black Elephant” doing its best Supreme impersonation.
The pair is also expected to arrive alongside a black-based Air Jordan 1 Low OG.
The Air Jordan 1 High OG “Elephant” is expected to release in full-family sizing next spring, complete with special packaging.
