Air Jordan 3 “Fire Red” releasing September 10th
Perhaps no shoe is more important to NBA legend Michael Jordan’s signature sneaker line than the Air Jordan 3. After the Chicago Bulls fullback expressed his disappointment in the Air Jordan 2, Nike enlisted the help of legendary shoe designer Tinker Hatfield.
The Air Jordan 3 was released in 1988 and may have saved the future partnership between Nike and Jordan. The OG basketball shoe has enjoyed unwavering popularity over the past 34 years. Last month, we covered the Air Jordan 3 “Dark Iris” release on Kobe Day.
While the white and purple colorway was perfect for the Los Angeles Lakers faithful, Jordan Brand is speaking directly to Chicago Bulls fans and old-school sneakerheads with the upcoming release of the Air Jordan 3 “Fire Red.”
Information Air Jordan 3 ‘Fire Red’
The Air Jordan 3 ‘Fire Red’ will hit shelves Saturday, September 10, 2022. Mens sizes will be $210, elementary school sizes will be $150, preschool sizes will be $90, and toddler sizes will cost $70. Fans can purchase the kicks on the Nike SNKRS app and at select retailers.
Like the original pair, the shoe features a white leather upper with an elephant print wrapped around the heel and toe. A red Jumpman logo is embroidered on the tongues to match the red fender. As this is an OG colorway, the iconic “Nike AIR” logo is placed on the heels.
While special sneaker collaborations with rappers are often the hottest, the upcoming release of the Air Jordan 3 “Fire Red” will serve as another example of how tough the shoe is.

Jordan Brand has reissued the Air Jordan 3 in countless colorways since 1988. But the original colorways worn by Michael Jordan will always stand the test of time.
It’s a safe bet that the Air Jordan 3 ‘Fire Red’ will sell out quickly. However, there are options for fans who are unable to purchase a pair before selling online. Consumers willing to pay resale price can purchase a pair of retro basketball shoes on eBay, GOAT or StockX.
