The Air Jordan 3 perfectly captured MJ’s ability to fly when he famously dunked from the free-throw line during the All-Star Dunk competition in 1988 in his Tinker Hatfield creation.
Over 30 years later, both that iconic dunk and the legendary Air Jordan model continue to play a huge part in today’s sneaker culture. In 2018, Jordan went deep in their vault by bringing back some OGs and unveiling new pairs of the historic AJ3.
Today, we see a new twist on an old favorite.

Customizer Jake Danklefs reimagined the Air Jordan 3 in a completely different way for a member of the NBA community.
Danklefs cooked up four exclusive pairs for the owner of the Houston Rockets, Tillman J. Fertitta, and his three sons. The pair features a custom stitched Rockets logo as well as custom back heel tabs.
