Blocked in Black: Air Jordan 3 Retro ‘Infrared 23’

The Nike Air Jordan III, upon its initial release during the 1987-88 NBA season, became one of the most revered and critically acclaimed sneakers in the history of modern footwear. A basketball shoe that became a fashion statement on Air and elephant print, the original is still praised today.

In the Air Jordan 3 Retro ‘Infrared 23’, it not only revisits its original glory, we here at BMF Kicks & Sportswear think it’s BETTER than the original. The blocking with the black is fabulous, superior to the original version that highlighted more white than any of the other trim colors of black, grey, and fire red.

Likely, you’ll see a significant amount of Jordan aficionados on the prep, college, and pro levels wear these, even some 26 years after the fact.

The Air Jordan 3 Retro ‘Infrared 23′ is a study in contrast. The white and black colors on the midsole and upper balance each other out. The tumbled and smooth leather combine to form the classic Jordan 3 upper. The hits of Infrared 23 offer a pop of color against the timeless elephant print. All of these elements make up another classic colorway of the Air Jordan 3 Retro. Available March 8 on Nike.com (8am EST/5am PST).
