A popular color scheme is reportedly coming to the Air Jordan 3.

Sneaker leak social media accounts @zSneakerheadz and Sneaker Files shared early info about the release of the Air Jordan 3 “Oreo,” a purported colorway of NBA legend Michael Jordan’s signature shoe that’s slated to launch before year’s end.

Given that we’re still months away before the purported Air Jordan 3 “Oreo” is expected to hit retail, images of the shoe have yet to surface but the leaker accounts have provided a mockup depiction of the shoe to give fans an idea of what the shoe is expected to look like. The image suggests that the Air Jordan 3 “Oreo” will feature a black nubuck upper, with signature elephant print overlays at the forefoot and heel counter. The shoe is also expected to feature a sail ankle collar while contrasting gray accents cover the tongue and sock liner. Capping off the look is a black and sail midsole, and a gray outsole.


The “Oreo” color scheme first appeared on the Air Jordan 4 in 1999. Over a decade later, the stealthy makeup appeared on the Air Jordan 5 in 2013 and was recently reissued in 2021. While the color schemes are unofficially dubbed “Oreo,” the aforementioned styles were not designed in collaboration with the sandwich cookie Oreo.

According to @zSneakerheadz on Instagram, the Air Jordan 3 “Oreo” will be released exclusively in women’s sizing this holiday season. At the time of publication, the release of the purported sneaker has yet to be announced by Jordan Brand.

In related Air Jordan news, the Air Jordan 3 “White Cement” is reportedly releasing next month.
