J Balvin and Jordan Brand will reportedly continue their collaborative Air Jordan releases in 2023. According to leakers @zSneakerheadz and @Brandon1an on Instagram, next up between the partners is a new Air Jordan 3 collab arriving this fall.
At the time of writing, an early look at the purported J Balvin x Air Jordan 3 has yet to surface, but based on the info shared by the accounts, the shoe will don a multicolored colorway much like the Reggaeton musician’s previous Air Jordan 1 High and Air Jordan 2 collabs. The sneaker is also expected to be available in full-family sizing, which includes unisex, preschool, and toddler sizes.
In addition to the sneaker, the forthcoming project will once again include a collaborative apparel collection featuring co-branded leather vests and woven jackets.
As of now, the rumored J Balvin x Air Jordan 3 collab will be released on September 2, but the release has yet to be announced by either of the parties involved.
UPDATE (05/07): Attending today’s Miami Grand Prix, J Balvin treated the public to a first look at his upcoming Air Jordan 3 collaboration. The pair, inspired by the sunsets of his hometown Medellín, features a sail-on-sail upper, yellow trim, and sunset gradients along the midsole and heel tab. Balvin’s logo adorns the heel of the right shoe, while ‘Nike Air’ is displayed on the left. The singer was also seen wearing the shoes on set for his music video for “Toretto” on the Fast X soundtrack. No additional details, including the release date, have been announced.
