As we approach the final stretch of 2023, we know that the Jordan Brand has been putting in that extra legwork to deliver a slew of high-heat releases this year. One important anniversary that will certainly go down in Jordan's history books is the 35th birthday of the Jordan 3.

The Best Air Jordan 3 Releases in 2023
Serving quite a history that stems beyond its court origins, the Jordan 3 has been part of something extraordinary within the sneaker scene.

From its appearance on sneaker shelves across the globe to its interwoven role within inner-city gravitas, the fit has plenty to offer. And this year is certainly no exception, as we have seen the elephant-printed design come into its own, boasting a lengthy list of colour-ups that will continue to stand the test of time.

To celebrate the last leg of the model's 35th anniversary we handpick a few of our favourite Jordan 3 releases this year, so you can see what all the hype is about!

Showcased during MJ’s 2001 season at the Washington Wizards, the Air Jordan 3 ‘Wizards’ has quite an iconography behind it. Before now, the colourway was an on-court exclusive and has adopted a close resemblance to its famed ‘True Blue’ variant. This Air Jordan 3 ‘Wizards’ iteration arrives in a premium leather base, complemented with grey hide-like printed laterals. Touches of blue add a pop of colour to the eyelets, sockliners, midsole and branded heel, while tinges of copper brown add a sophisticated completion.

Air Jordan 3 'Pine Green'

Release Date: April 2023

Another minimalist design that has been added to the Jordan roster, the Air Jordan 3 ‘Lucky Green’ has certainly turned heads since its debut in April 2023. Initially chartered as a women’s exclusive, the fit comes draped in earthy tones of green, paired with the silhouette's signature white leather uppers and classic aged -midsole.

4. Air Jordan 3 Retro ‘Light Orewood Brown’

Ushering in a new colourway for its 35th anniversary, the Air Jordan 3 Retro ‘Light Orewood Brown’ provided autumnal vibes to summer. Detailed in a soft brown suede, the fit offered a feel of nostalgia through the use of its dark brown elephant print overlays which draws comparison from the early 2001 ‘Mocha’ variant. Smooth suede tongues offer a plush feel up top and are branded with gold Jumpman insignias, matching the rubberised heel.

5. Air Jordan 3 x J Balvin ‘Medellín Sunset’

Air Jordan 3 x J Balvin 'Medellin Sunset'

Needless to say, it wouldn’t be an anniversary year with a high-profile Jordan 3 collaboration - cue in Reggaeton kingpin J Balvin working his magic on the lauded ‘Medellín Sunset’ addition. This vibrant partnership draws inspiration from the picturesque sunset of his beloved hometown in Columbia. Striking gradients were the subject of this exclusive release, reminiscent of the city’s breathtaking dusk skies.
