Last September, the Jordan Brand introduced its Elements Collection, which involves taking the most prominent feature of one iconic Air Jordan model and applying it to the base of another. The first release was the 3Lab5, an all-new version of the 5 with a full elephant print upper. Grey and black-based colorways have already released, with a third on the way this fall. But before that goes down, Jordan Brand is flipping the script on the Air Jordan 3.

This Saturday marks the launch of the Air Jordan 5Lab3, which borrows the reflective detail from the tongue of the 5. The 5Lab3 features an upper made almost completely of reflective Metallic Silver, touches of elephant print, black accents and a translucent outsole.

You can get your hands on these highly anticipated Jordan shoes here for $225 this Saturday, March 29 at 8:00 a.m. EST / 7:00 a.m. CST. Follow @Eastbay on Twitter and @OfficialEastbay on Instagram for all release information and updates.
