In an ideal world, we would have already gotten our hands on the J Balvin x Air Jordan 3 “Medellín Sunset.” Originally expected to debut at the beginning of the month, the pair’s release was unfortunately pushed back all the way to September 23rd. And while we’ve still yet to receive confirmation from the Jumpman themselves, it appears things are proceeding as scheduled, as official images of the collaboration have recently surfaced.
The artist’s first collaborative encounter with MJ’s third signature — his second, the “Rio,” is already in the works as well — the J Balvin x Air Jordan 3 “Medellín Sunset” pays a heartfelt homage to Balvin’s hometown. It’s here where the Colombian singer elected to shoot the forthcoming campaign, intertwining his creative pursuits closely with his roots. Color-wise, the pair is visually emblematic of its namesake, as it applies a vibrant gradient atop not only the rear midsole but also underneath the co-branded emblems along the heels. Beige tones, then, run throughout the rest of the construction, from the premium leather upper to the midsole and hits of Elephant Print.
For a closer, detailed look at the J Balvin x Air Jordan 3, check out the official images added ahead. Barring any additional delays, a release should be on track to hit Nike SNKRS on September 23rd.
In other news, a first look at the Air Jordan 4 Bred Reimagined was revealed earlier this week.
