The Air Jordan 3 was designed by Tinker Hatfield, who worked for Nike as a designer for stores and offices. Michael Jordan was ready to leave Nike but the Jordan 3 changed his mind. It became Michael Jordan's third sneaker, but this was the first Air Jordan sneaker with a visible air unit on the heel, the new jumpman logo, an elephant print finish and tumbled leather for a luxurious look.
In 1988 the sneaker made its debut in four different color themes; white, black, red and blue. 1988 was the year that Michael Jordan won many prizes such as the Slam Dunk Contest, All Star MVP, All Defensive Firt Team and Defensive Player of the Year. He all won these prizes while wearing the Air Jordan 3 while playing basketball.
The Air Jordan III was also famous for the humorous advertisements of film director Spike Lee as Mars Blackmon, the character he played in his film She's Gotta Have It. This campaign was known as "Mars and Mike", one of Nike's most successful advertising campaigns. These were the first Jordans with the "NIKE AIR" logo on the back.
This edition of the Air Jordan 3 is executed in a White / Valor Blue-Tech Gray color scheme and is dressed in a white leather upper. The two shades of blue are mentioned on the surf, eyelets and part of the midsole. The iconic elephant print is spotted on the overlays of the toe and heel. This pair comes with the Jumpman logo on the tongue instead of the UNC logo. the Air Jordan 3 UNC comes with a box that has the same elephant print / look.
