Earlier this year at the “Future Of Flight” event in Los Angeles, Jordan Brand previewed a plethora upcoming sneaker silhouettes and colorways, including an Air Jordan 3 Flyknit, which was supposed to release in March. The kicks never dropped, but now it is being reported they’ll be available for the first time ever on August 18.
The Flyknit 3s, retailing for $190, will make their debut in an all-black colorway, featuring the beloved yarn-like Flyknit material throughout the iconic silhouette. The shoes also come complete with a leather inner lining, waxed laces, and a glow in the dark sole.
While this is the first Flyknit Air Jordan 3 release it’s not the first time that Jordan Brand has experimented with this material on a pair classics. Last year saw multiple Air Jordan 1 Flyknits, including “Bred,” “Royal,” and “Shadow” colorways. As such, we expected multiple colorways the Flyknit Air Jordan 3, but as now it appears this black joint is the only one headed to retailers this summer.
Jordan Brand experimented with the beloved Flyknit material in 2017, releasing the Air Jordan 1 Flyknit in both “Bred” and “Royal” colorways. It looks like that trend will continue for Jordan Brand in 2018, as photos have recently surfaced a “BHM” Air Jordan 1 Flyknit, as well as a never before seen Flyknit Air Jordan 6.

Just like the Air Jordan 1s, the upcoming Air Jordan 6s come fully wrapped in the lightweight, yarn-like material, which sits above the familiar Air Jordan 6 outsole. Little details are known about the new-look Air Jordan 6s but the overall silhouette remains mostly true to form, with the addition a heel tab.
Word on the street suggests the Air Jordan 6 Flyknit will make it’s debut sometime in the Spring, though it’s unclear which colorways will be releasing. There are also reports that Flyknit Air Jordan 3s will also be revealed sometime this year.
