Nike Introduces New Air Jordan 3 Prototype & Unearths a Tinker Hatfield Sketch

Accompanied by a surprise AJ3 “Black Cement” release.

By //Footwear

At its recent Future of Flight event Los Angeles, Jordan Brand revealed plans for a very special Air Jordan 3 prototype and made an OG Tinker Hatfield sketch public.

Featuring an artful, accessible blend of white, black and grey colorways, Nike’s new Air Jordan 3 prototype is designed by the legendary Tinker Hatfield and is geared towards the diehard Jordan enthusiast. To promote the shoe, the Swoosh have also paired its introductory announcement with the revealing of a previously-archived Tinker Hatfield sketch, adding to the celebration surrounding the 30th anniversary of the AJ III. Set to see release as a limited-edition offering, the shoe is scheduled to land on shelves on March 4, and will carry a $200 USD price tag.

Additionally, Jordan Brand celebrated the introduction to the Air Jordan 3 Prototype by doing a surprise Nike SNKRS release of the Air Jordan 3 “Black Cement,” which has now sold out.

You can take a look at the new Nike Air Jordan 3 prototype and its original Tinker Hatfield sketch above. For more from the Air Jordan 3 lineup, check out another look at the “Katrina” model.
