Air Jordan 3 Desert Elephant: A limited edition colorway aptly named

Sep 21, 2022

Sneakerheads still love the Air Jordan 3 and its various silhouettes. To add to the Air Jordan 3 Collection, Nike has now launched the ‘Desert Elephant’ colorway, after the success of the Air Jordan 3 Muslin and Cardinal Red. The Air Jordan 3 was the first shoe Tinker Hatfield designed for Michael Jordan. These shoes were one of the first to have Nike’s signature Air unit in its soles. Ever since its launch, they have become a sensation amongst basketball players and young athletes. For many, owning any Air Jordan 3 colorway is a matter of prestige. 

Why name this colorway the ‘Desert Elephant’?

Despite being well known across Africa, the Elephant is a rare sight in African deserts. The Air Jordan sneakers for men, too are a rare sight to find but are well known and valuable. Despite there being much better innovative and performance-enhancing sneakers out there, there are still so many people who’d love to own limited edition Air Jordan sneakers.

Just like the Desert Elephant, who comes to a particular area only once in a blue moon, this Air Jordan colorway comes with a design aesthetic that may not be seen for a long time.

What to expect with this Air Jordan 3 ‘Desert Elephant’ colorway?

Similar to the earlier OG Black Cement colorway, these shoes come with an AJ3-based interwoven black upper with a Sail tongue and a brown outsole. The Jumpman logo comes in a contrasting Rush Orange color. The insoles come with a customized Jumpman logo depicting the colorway idea. This colorway comes with Nike’s signature flat black laces and a custom-designed shoe box.

How to buy this rare, limited edition colorway?

As is with all Air Jordan limited edition colorways, you have limited sources to Buy Air Jordan 3 Desert Elephant. The most obvious source is Nike’s official website and select retail stores. Here, getting the size you want is a tough task, as the shoes sell out within minutes of the drop. At the few retail stores that actually sell these shoes, there are long lines of sneaker fans who’d want a chance to buy these limited edition shoes.

Considering the strong demand and limited supply of these retro colorways, many resellers buy them from the official sources using automated bots to sell them later in the grey market for more than twice their original price. 

Many sneakerheads get disappointed when they’re not able to buy their favorite retro Air Jordan colorways. Many turn to this grey market, but it doesn’t make sense as there are ways you could buy these shoes at a realistic price. At the Best Online Sneaker Store, you could buy authentic silhouettes like the Air Jordan 3 Desert Elephant at a price that you’re comfortable with. If you don’t have the cash at hand, no problem, you could buy these shoes in interest-free installments with our finance partners. When you have an option to buy the shoes at a comfortable price, why should you pay more than double for the same shoes on the grey market?
