How the Air Jordan 3 went from hero of the hardwood to fashion icon

First hitting the courts in 1988, the Air Jordan 3 was created by Nike's design guru Tinker Hatfield, who brought an architect's eye to its clean, sophisticated lines. The sneaker introduced several features that would go on to become perennial staples, such as the visible air unit and the Jumpman logo, a silhouette of basketball superstar Michael Jordan at full stretch. With original models becoming vintage collectables, since 2007 there have been regular releases of new colourways and authentic retros to satisfy the non-stop demand for this classic model.

Why all the fuss about the Jordan 3?

The Jordan 3 has a sporting pedigree second to none. Michael Jordan himself preferred them to any other sneaker, and it was while wearing the Jordan 3 that he achieved some of his greatest feats. But the shoe has always been valued for its sense of style too. In recent years, there have been eye-catching women's editions in luxe materials and prints like the Air Jordan III Bordeaux, as worn by teen singing sensation Billie Eilish. And a team-up with Anna Wintour and Vogue for the Jordan SE III AWOK has elevated this sneaker to the status of high fashion.

So what is the AJ 3's secret?

Behind the success of every Air Jordan 3 is a springy foam sole delivering that extra little bit of flight and hang time, so that you'll feel like a basketball star the next time you're on the court. Later models developed a longer tongue and a more deeply scooped ankle collar, but the legendary smooth silhouette and strong performance have always remained intact.
