Earlier this year the Jordan Brand offered us one of the most unique slides we have ever seen, styled after the timeless “True Blue” Air Jordan Retro 3. Putting the same idea to use, the Jordan Brand just hit us with the Retro 3 Slide in the same color scheme as the recently released “Stealth” Air Jordan Retro 3.
Just like the “Stealths,” this latest drop of the Retro 3 Slide works with a grey nubuck upper, combined with multiple hits of black and varsity red throughout. Several design elements from the Jordan III are immediately noticeable on the Slide, including the signature eyelets and tooling below.
The “Stealth” Jordan Retro 3 Slide is now available for purchase from Eastbay.

As one of the most popular shoes of all time, the Air Jordan 3 is one of the few Jordan shoes that seems to make it on to everyone’s wish list. For proof of its popularity just look at how many sneaker designs, colorways, and retro models since it originally released in 1988, have been inspired by the groundbreaking Tinker Hatfield design.
One Jordan 3 inspired model takes a casual Sunday kickback a step further than all the others however. The Jordan Retro 3 Slide uses all the timeless elements of the Jordan Retro 3 True Blue, only reduced to sandal form, making the perfect summer accessory for the pool side, the local basketball courts, or after workouts at the gym. Equipped with Elephant Print, visible Air cushioning, and a timeless color combination, the Jordan Retro 3 Slide is the next best thing to the Jordan Retro 3 True Blues this summer.
It’s no secret that the “Cement” Air Jordan Retro 3 will be making a long-awaited return later this month. If you can’t get enough of the classic Retro 3 styling, Jordan Brand is releasing a similar slide to accompany the release.
The “Cement” Retro 3 recovery slide is directly inspired by the original Air Jordan III. White leather used for the hook-and-loop strap is complemented with elephant print rands wrapped around the toe and heel. Varsity red works the underside of the strap, branding and a set of mock eyelets on the side. A hint of black pops up on midsole trim, above a visible “Air” unit. The footbed of the slide is done in translucent gel elephant print, while the outsole is a nearly exact replica of the original.
Due to release on the 20th of this month, you can pre-order your Retro 3 Slide today.
