The Air Jordan 3 RTR EXP Lite variation, which is designed to look like a tactical boot, will soon join this year’s Air Jordan releases 2019. This is definitely not the first time that Jordan Brand has transformed one of the iconic Air Jordan models into a boot. Take for instance the Air Jordan 9 Retro NRG Boot that made its retail debut last year in two different colorways. However, the Air Jordan 3 RTR EXP Lite is more reminiscent of the Air Jordan 1 variations from last year’s “Reimagined” Collection. In fact, Jordan Brand even released an Air Jordan 3 Explorer XX last year.
Jordan Brand Already ‘Reimagined’ The Air Jordan 3 Last Year
The Air Jordan Retro 3 Explorer XX was inspired by the Air Jordan 1 variation of the same name from the “Reimagined” Collection and it retailed at a price of $145 on December 31st, 2018. This high-top variation of the Air Jordan 3 sported a deconstructed look, with uppers made up of leather and synthetic materials, and featured an embossed “Jumpman” logo on each tongue. In addition to its debuting Black and White colorway, Jordan Brand also released a more vibrant iteration of the Air Jordan Retro 3 Explorer XX last month on February 1st, 2019. This one was dressed up in Atmosphere Grey, Tropical Twist and Vast Grey.
The RTR EXP Lite Is The First Boot-Variation Of The Air Jordan 3
The Explorer XX was undoubtedly a high-top variation, but the RTR EXP Lite elevates the height of the Air Jordan Retro 3 even further. While the Air Jordan 3 RTR EXP Lite has certainly been designed to resemble a military combat / tactical boot, it also draws inspiration from Nike’s SFB line of outdoor boots as well. At the base, the RTR EXP Lite still looks like the Air Jordan 3, but it appears to be featuring longer laces and both of its heightened collars are equipped with a zipper. These RTR EXP Lite colorways will be joining upcoming Air Jordan releases 2019, both on Nike.com and select retailers.
