The Air Jordan 3 “Green Glow”

aj3 green glow

The Air Jordan 3 is one of the most sought after and respected Air Jordan models. On March 16, the 3 is returning to Shoe Palace shelves.

Green Glow

The “Green Glow” colorway was made popular years ago when it appeared on the Air Jordan 4. Jordan Brand is now using that popular color scheme on the Air Jordan 3. The “Green Glow” version of the 3 adds incredible flashes of color, to a rather standard version of the silhouette. This “Green Glow” version of the 3 is essentially a slightly altered take on the classic “Black Cement” model.


The Air Jordan III is one of the most popular sneakers from Jordan Brand. Tinker Hatfield got his start with the Jordan franchise by designing the Air Jordan III. Hatfield’s genius helped to shape the direction of Jordan Brand. Tinker and Michael Jordan discussed what MJ wanted to see with the Jordan III during the design process. Michael made it clear that he wanted a lighter and sleeker shoe than the Jordan I & II. The Mid Top design of the III was the first for the line and the first for a basketball shoe. Another first was the appearance of the now iconic Jumpman logo on the back of the shoe. It is hard to imagine the franchise without that famous logo, the III introduced the Jumpman to the world. The III also introduced beloved elements like elephant print and a visible air unit to the Air Jordan line. Those elements are considered iconic pieces of the franchise today.

First Trip To Mars

The III launched a lot of firsts for the Jordan Brand when it came to design. The marketing of the Air Jordan III was also revolutionary. The first Jordan commercial featuring Mars Blackmon debuted in 1988. The ad for the Air Jordan III has made it hard to see the III and not instantly associate it to the Mars Blackmon persona. Mars Blackmon was of course played by Spike Lee. Lee is one of the most celebrated film directors of all time and his contributions to the Air Jordan franchise are massive.
