Due out next summer is a new colorway of the Air Jordan 3 that will be somewhat of a twist on past releases that you’re familiar with.

zSneakerheadz reports that a Jordan 3 in white, purple, black and grey is in the works. While official imagery or early leaks have not yet surfaced, the provided mock-up suggests the shoe will fall in line with the previously released “Fire Red” and “Racer Blue” colorways, but with purple being the primary accent color. Think of last year’s black-based “Court Purple” Jordan 3, but in white and with darker elephant print.

Keep an eye out for updates regarding this release and a first look in the months ahead.

UPDATE (03/22): Thanks to @zSneakerheadz, we now have a first look at the “Dark Iris” Air Jordan 3 that’s scheduled to hit shelves this summer. Check back soon to Sole Collector for official updates in the coming months.

UPDATE (06/28): Official Nike product images of the “Dark Iris” Air Jordan 3 have emerged. As of now, the new colorway is rumored to release on July 9 for $200 but a release date has not yet been confirmed by Jordan Brand.

UPDATE (08/14): SNKRS app has confirmed that the “Dark Iris” Air Jordan 3 will release on Aug. 24 for $200.
