This is the type of sneaker that is always welcome. There may be some people who are sick of seeing Jordan Brand trot out the same colorways of ancient shoes over and over again through the decades, but even that crowd can’t complain too much with this, what will be the first-ever retro of the “Fire Red” Air Jordan 3 with the original “Nike Air” branding on the back. The “Fire Red” Jordan 3 has typically sat on a tier below the coveted, original white and black colorways of the shoe, never really enjoying the same fanfare as a universally wearable pair. It’s still a very good sneaker, and one that deserves to see new life in a form that keeps with its original makeup. There is a dwindling number of truly great Jordans that haven’t been re-released in their original specs, and the “Fire Red” Air Jordan 3 is deserving of the treatment. —Brendan Dunne
