This is the Air Jordan III (3) "5Lab3" which features a reflect silver, black and white color way. This is the second edition to release from the Air Jordan "Lab" series which mixes elements from two iconic models. The first was the Air Jordan 5 "3Lab5" which featured cement print all over the AJ5 model. This one is an Air Jordan 3 model that features the iconic 3M reflective material, found on the AJ5 tongue, all over the AJIII upper. It also features the translucent rubber outsole which was first introduced on the Air Jordan V model back in 1990.
One of the best elements of this release is the special packaging used which helps tell the story of the "Air Jordan Element" series. The box features a holographic geometric pattern foreshadowing further premium cross-pollinations. Even the tissue paper inside has embossed logos pulled straight from the AJ3 legacy. On the inner tongue it shows a periodic table inspired embossing, made out of premium 3M reflective material, that references "Re" as the fifth element, that being the 1990 AJ5. Jordan Brand threw in a unique info card that helps explain the 3M legacy from the 1990 AJ5 model and the Element series that foreshadows shoes to come. If you're a true collector and cherish these special models then here is your chance to add it to your collection.
