The most coveted colorways of the Air Jordan 3 will always be the originals, but one of the more beloved non-original pairs may be in line for a 2021 return.

According to Soleheatonfeet, a pair styled in Silver/Light Graphite-Orange Peel-Sport Red will release early next year. While it's not a confirmation of the "Cool Grey" pair and SHOF suggests it could be something very similar, the color combination is exactly the same as the popular 2007 release. That pair, now 13 years old, goes for a reasonable $350 on the resale market but is highly vulnerable to cracking if worn.

Images of the upcoming retro haven't yet surfaced, but we'll keep you updated with a first look and new developments in the coming months.
