Zion Williamson's dynamic playstyle and rapid ascent in the NBA are perfectly encapsulated in his signature sneaker line with Jordan Brand. As we look towards February 2024, which will host an array of All-Star Weekend-themed releases, a special edition of Zion's third signature model, the Zion 3, is set to hit shelves. Following up on the No Guts and the eye-catching Triple Pink colorway, a 3D film-inspired colorway has emerged.
The Jordan Zion 3 NRG 3D is a masterclass in innovative design, featuring a grey base layer accentuated with the model’s signature mud splash print. This design is a nod to Zion making it “out the mud,” with the print derived from a 3D scan of him stepping into a mud puddle. What sets this colorway apart is its white, black, and red finish, reminiscent of the classic 3D effects seen in old-school movies. The theme extends to the lace set, where black laces are edged with red and blue, adding to the sneaker's distinctive look.
Performance-wise, the Jordan Zion 3 doesn't disappoint. The sneaker has a drop-in Formula 23 midsole, offering responsive cushioning tailored to Zion's on-court requirements. A Zoom Air unit is also embedded in the forefoot, providing explosive energy return with every step. This high-performance setup is encased in a semi-translucent clear midsole, enhancing functionality and contributing to the sneaker's striking aesthetic. Completing the Jordan Zion 3 NRG 3D design is the clear outsole, which features red and blue highlights on the midfoot and toe area, echoing the sneaker's 3D theme.
The Jordan Zion 3 NRG 3D will release on February 20, 2024, through Nike and select Jordan Brand retailers online and in-store. Available in men's and GS sizing, the pair will retail for $150 and $110, respectively. Download the Sole Retriever mobile app for the latest updates on this release and more.
