Tinker Hatfield’s original sketch of the Air Jordan 3 came ot life last year with the addition of a huge Swoosh to the outer side. Now, fans can’t get enough, prompting the brand to release the AJ3 Tinker in a new University Red makeup.

More Tinker Air Jordan 3 colorways are on the way, and not exactly as we expected. Last year, it was reported that the Air Jordan 3 “Katrina”, which only last year made its retail debut, would be releasing in the silhouette’s new “Tinker” form, featuring a Swoosh and Nike branding from the original sketch. While not everyone was a fan of this new Jordan 3 iteration when they first premiered, the addition of a Swoosh has grown on many, leading them to become tough to find in recent months. Luckily, Jordan Brand has another opportunity coming this month. Taking after the original Nike Air Max 1, the latest Air Jordan 3 Tinker covers the upper in varying white and grey shades, while bright University Red accents take over the mudguard, heel branding, and tongue lining. Additionally, this pair will feature removable Swooshes, likely coming with other options to add to make the shoes your own.


The “University Red” version of the Tinker’s original Air Jordan 3 is expected to drop on March 30th, 2019. For $200, the new look Jordan 3 will launch from both Nike SNKRS and select retailers. Check out the custom-made version below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more Air Jordan release dates.
