Overall, the Flyknit Air Jordan 3 is actually a pretty great sneaker.
I am a fan of these Flyknit Jordan 3s. I think that the subtlety of the knit itself, in combination with the luxurious upgrades like the laces and the inside sockliner, really helps push this shoe in its own right. And in this case, I just think that combining the old school with the new school actually resulted in a pretty good product.
The biggest surprise was the glow-in-the-dark outsoles that make the shoe stand out more than it already does.
I think they're really nice. The build is nice.The material, the Flyknit is dope. And then, the elephant print on there is also dope as well.
It does have the silhouette of the Air Jordan 3. It looks like an Air Jordan 3. This aatually reminds me of the 'Flip 3'
For an extra $10, you get a complete Flyknit upper. You get that leather liner in the inside of the shoe. Glow-in-the-dark soles. An then, waxed laces as well.

Cushion. The Air Jordan 3 Flyknit is equipped with an encapuslated Air-sole unit. The Air unit reduces the force of impact for maximum comfort.
Traction. These Michael Jordan sneakers feature an abrasion-resistant glow-in-the-dark outsole with a modified circular traction pattern that provides superior grip on a variety of surfaces.
Length and Width. Reviewers are claiming that the sizing is the same as the regular Air Jordan 3; however, they also say that they have received reports that the Flyknit is loose-fitting. Testers recommend ordering your real size if unable to try the shoes in store.
Lockdown. These Air Jordan basketball shoes have extra lace holes that offer a fully customizable fit.
As its name suggests, the Air Jordan 3 Flyknit is equipped with a Flyknit upper that conforms to the shape of the foot. The lightweight Flyknit material is engineered to provide maximum support and comfort.

The Air Jordan 3 Flyknit fuses today’s most innovative upper technology with one of Jordan Brand’s most iconic styles. The intricately-textured knit upper mimics the smooth leather, tumbled leather, and elephant print found on the OG Air Jordan 3.
Premium touches include the leather lining, waxed laces, and a glossy midsole. A ghostly green glow-in-the-dark outsole completes the modern retro theme that is both court and street ready.
The Flyknit iteration of the Air Jordan 3 arrives in a stealthy Black/Black/Anthracite hue. At this point, this is the only colorway available. Stay tuned to our site for an updated list of hues as Jordan Brand is set to release more colorways.
