Before the Air Jordan 3 “Cool Grey” had made its official retail debut back in 2007, the third Air Jordan model had never received the lifestyle treatment ever before. Perhaps that is why the retail price of the Air Jordan 3 “Cool Grey” had been $10 higher than that of other Air Jordan 3 colorways that had been sold before it. Furthermore, matching apparel had accompanied it. Considering that the Air Jordan 3 has a connection to Mars Blackmon and Spike Lee, so this had been inspiration behind the apparel collection. Apparently, Jordan Brand had even whipped a sample before the colorway’s release, which is standard practice.
The day of release of the Air Jordan 3 “Cool Grey” is also regarded one of the most memorable and unforgettable one in the Air Jordan 3’s history. Along with the Air Jordan 3 “Cool Grey,” Jordan Brand had also dropped three other colorways of silhouette, which include the Retro “Flip,” the GS-exclusive “Harbor Blues,” and the “Fire Red,” which had received the retro treatment for the very first time. Anyone sneakerhead who had copped all four of those sneakers would have ended up spending a total of $535 for all of them. Still a fair bargain when compared to today’s Air Jordan prices.
Considering that the Air Jordan 3 been on a long hiatus ever since being temporarily discontinued, no new colorway has hit the shelves as of lately. Of course, the Air Jordan 3 is finally returning in the form of the OG ’88 “True Blue” for Black Friday and the “Cyber Monday” release. More recently though, Oregon Sole shared a photo of a never-before-seen Air Jordan 3 on its Instagram account @oregonsole. The reason sneakerheads have likely never seen this Air Jordan 3 pair before is because it is sample of the Air Jordan 3 “Cool Grey.” It is apparently nicknamed “College Grey” after hue covering it entirely.
As of now though, sneakerheads will neither be able to cop the Air Jordan 3 “Cool Grey” nor this “College Grey” sample. However, they can wait for Holiday Season 2016’s Air Jordan 3 releases.
