How’s it going everyone? I say this often but I especially mean it. Today, we’re covering a very special sneaker. It’s certainly a silhouette we’ve seen before but with a facelift. The Air Jordan 3 “Laser Orange” is coming to you live on the SNKRS app on Friday, August 21st for $190. Note that this Jumpman shoe will be available in women’s sizing. Go up a size and a half to covert to men’s. Stay tuned for more analysis on resale value and predictions.

A Detailed Look

The Jordan 3 never get old. This version is dressed in a White, Laser Orange, Cement Grey, and Black color scheme. This Air Jordan 3 features a white tumbled leather upper with hits of Laser Orange throughout the sockliner, eyelets and midsole. Incorporating iconic elephant print on the toe and heel, this iteration is completed by a Laser Orange Jumpman “Air” hangtag.

Below are the official images. Are these a cop or drop? Stock one and rock one?

I don’t know about anyone else but I’m getting major Kobe Bryant 3 vibes from these Lasers – the ultra limited pack that accompanied a Jordan 8.

More Jordan News

The women have been getting a lot of TLC from Jordan Brand recently. Notable shoes available in women’s sizing of late have been the Satin Snake 1’s as well as the highly sought after Off White 4’s. We’ll also be seeing a Fire Red Denim 3 at the end of August as well.

1988 was the first time the world saw the Jordan 3 in action. The famous photo of MJ dunking from the free throw line in the ’88 Dunk Contest features the White Cement 3’s on feet. 2018 being the 30th anniversary, we were graced with some fabulous 3’s like the Black Cements in their original form.

Additionally we saw some fan favorites like the Mocha, Pure Money, and Chlorophyll colorways to rerelease in 2018.

In 2020 we’ve seen some good ones so far with more to come. As I alluded to earlier we’ll be seeing this Denim Fire Red for the ladies later this month. A spin on the classic featuring denim overplayed on the elephant print. Here’s a shot at those.

Resale Anticipation

Ah, a new Jordan 3 enters the scene. I wonder how many different releases of the AJ3 we’ve seen.

Long story short, these Lasers should resell well! Based on trends we’re seeing in shoes like the UNC Jordan 3, there’s a sizable amount of hype which should lead to some staying power on the secondary market. The UNC’s reached their rock bottom 10 days after release (which is common) and even that price was still profitable. They’ve been climbing ever since and are now into the high $300 tier.

I can see the Laser Orange 3’s doing exactly that if not better. Clean color blocking reminiscent of the OG’s like White Cement and Fire Red always hit well. Advice would be to either sell in the first few days if the profits are $75 plus or be prepared to hold for a while and they could see an even nicer return over time.
