A familiar Air Jordan 3 Retro colorway returns with a twist.
Immediately after its original debut in October 2001, the Air Jordan 3 Retro “Mocha” has been a low-key sleeper. Pairs could be copped on sale for as low as $20 at select retailers as the new Retro+ colorway did not receive immediate praise from sneakerheads. As time passed, the pair became sought after even though it still received a mixed reaction from critics. Seventeen years later, the Air Jordan 3 Retro “Mocha” returned and had a much better retail release than its predecessor. Now in 2022, we get a new take on this modern-day colorway, in the form of the ice cream-themed “Neapolitan” edition.
Similar to the vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry flavors found in the traditional ice cream, the Air Jordan 3 Retro “Neapolitan” comes in white, dark mocha, atmosphere, and sail. Another women’s exclusive, they feature a white-based leather upper with pink accents via the Jumpman logo on the tongue, front eyelets, wrapping around the back heel of the midsole, and on the bottom front of the outsole. Dark Mocha highlights the elephant print detailing in its traditional places as well as the upper eyestays, branding on the back heel, and the rubber outsole. Topping things off is special packaging in the form of a white shoe box and pink plastic Jumpman hang tag.
The Air Jordan 3 Retro Neapolitan W is set to release on May 14th, 2022. It will drop at Nike as well as select Jordan Brand retailers worldwide in-store and online. Coming in women’s sizing, retail is set at $200. Keep it locked to our Twitter and Mobile App to stay up to date on future releases.
