Released in 2020, the Air Jordan 3 Retro Court Purple almost never made it to the street. The original mock-up featured a Phoenix Suns color blocking, but the shoe was canceled in the summer of 2020. Rumors circulated that a new iteration would feature a Lakers theme. When the Air Jordan 3 Retro Black Court Purple was released outside North America, the official colors maintained the mock-up's original color blocking and Phoenix Suns theme.
The Air Jordan 3 Retro Black Court Purple shoe features a Court Purple Jumpman with an orange silhouette on the tongue. An iconic Cement Gray elephant print envelopes the upper while black leather finishes the base. The shoe's eponymous Court Purple dominates the collar and trims the midsole while the colorway finishes off with a white midsole and gray outsole. The shoe combines leather luxury with sportsmanship in a style that has been reinvented since its original debut.
The Air Jordan 3 Court Purple released in November of 2020 and retailed for $190.
