Air Jordan 3 "Rust Pink"
Release Date: TBA
Where to Buy: Nike
Editor’s Notes: The Air Jordan 3 has surfaced in a new pink colorway, somewhat similar to Aleali May's "Millennial Pink" Air Jordan 6 from 2019. Instead of the usual tumbled leather on the upper, Nike has utilized buttery nubuck. While the "Rust Pink" hue covers much of the sneaker, darker pink accents and touches of sail serve to complement. The traditional elephant print is present on the pair, as is the Jumpman branding. The "Rust Pink" Air Jordan 3 is a women's release, expected to launch in the weeks ahead.

Arriving in a “Cream White/Aluminium” combination, the sneaker features a knit upper made from upcycled plastic waste collected from remote islands, beaches, coastal communities, and shorelines. It also incorporates adidas' innovative 4D midsole, which is printed with light and oxygen via Carbon Digital Light Synthesis technology. adidas describes Carbon Digital Light Synthesis as using "digital light projection, oxygen-permeable optics and programmable liquid resins to print high-performance, durable polymeric products." The “Cream White/Aluminium” 4D Parley releases January 15 for $250.
