The 'Fire Red' Air Jordan 3 Retro Returns to its OG Form

When the 'Fire Red' Air Jordan 3 makes its awaited return, it will effectively leave only one original 1988 colorway yet to make a remastered reemergence. But until then – lets rap about the fabled OG palette.

2007 was quite a long time ago. Fifteen years to be exact. When the colorway returned back then, it came with the Jumpman fixed on the heel tab, a darker – richer shade of Fire Red and also came most notably with blacked out elephant print panels. The latter to which, if you ask around, you'll find a contingency of fans who prefer the shading and blackened elephant print accenting. But, as we've seen over the near decade since the Jordan Brand remastered initiative came into play, we've seen beloved OGs gain a second, third or even fourth wind in some cases – with a meticulous approach to shape, texture, color and even factoring in how the new iteration will age over time.

What began with the 'True Blue' Air Jordan 3 Retro OG in 2016 comes the 'Fire Red' in 2022 and the 'White Cement', well ... Jordan Brand, we're waiting. (👀)

Release is slated for September 10th officially.
