To say the Air Jordan 3 started the year on the right foot would be an understatement. With the appearance of the “Slim Shady” 3s and news of the “Fire Red” returning for 2022, there’s quite a bit to look forward to from the silhouette. The “Desert Elephant” colorway makes things more exciting, and these newly surfaced images help build up the anticipation.
In terms of construction, the pair appears premium in its materials and build. A smooth and tumbled leather outfit the brunt of the upper, both of which are polished in an elegant black finish. Adjacent, brown suedes wrap the toe and heel, the signature Elephant print subtly etched atop in a slightly lighter shade. Though similar in texture, the eye stays, tongue and collar opt for a more natural hue, which better complements the “Sail” midsole below. Additionally, the pair is touched up with bold orange accents and is branded with a colorway-exclusive patch along with the insole.
For a closer look at the “Desert Elephant,” check out the leaked images below. These are currently expected to release later this 2022, though when exactly is still TBD.
