Recently we gave you a preview of what was to come for the Jordan Brand for parts of 2014 and we noted that the Air Jordan 5Lab3 would be releasing on Saturday, March 29th for $225. 

This time around the Jumpman is taking the beloved Air Jordan 3 and giving it the 3M treatment. Taking the iconic reflective tongue from the Air Jordan 5 and applying the shiny look to the entire upper, which is definitely a first for the Jordan Brand as far as the Air Jordan 3 goes (they did have an all reflective upper on an Air Jordan 5 Retro before).

The brand left no stone unturned as we see black/reflective laces as well as reflective cement print and eyelets. A glossy black and white midsole balance things out just a bit. The translucent, clear outsole makes a triumphant return and the inner tongue carries the "Element" desgination that lets you know that this is the real deal as far as this being part of the "Lab" series.

Check the pics and let us know your thoughts on this radical twist to the Air Jordan 3 Retro series. Let us know if you think Jordan Brand will begin releasing kicks on weekdays in the comments section!
