Closer Look at Nina Chanel Abney's Air Jordan 3 Collaboration

Update: Just over a week after unveiling her latest project with Jordan Brand, Nina Chanel Abney is back with a detailed breakdown of her forthcoming Air Jordan 3 collaboration. On top of its mixed material construction outlined in our initial coverage below, additional special detailing has been revealed. What is presumably a Jumpman logo designed by her adorns not only the tongue, but the sockliner and special hangtag as well. Another unique element is the heel’s chenille Nike Air logo that looks to have been created by Abney as well. Rounding out the reveal is an alternate set of orange laces, a “NINA” callout at the interior of the right shoe’s tongue and a special shoebox. Stay tuned for updates as release is rumored to take place on June 20 at a price of $225 USD.

Original Story: Artist Nina Chanel Abney has taken to Instagram to reveal her latest project with Jordan Brand: a collaborative iteration of the Air Jordan 3. Arriving almost two years after Abney first linked with the Jumpman for a duo of takes on the Air Jordan 2, her take on Michael Jordan‘s third signature sneaker boasts a “Bicoastal/Black/Malachite/Fossil” color scheme and a canvas/suede construction.
