Jordan Brand is preparing to launch a new version of the Air Jordan 3 in Spring 2025, inspired by Michael Jordan's "Lucky" UNC training shorts. This unique edition honours Jordan's ritual of wearing his University of North Carolina training shorts under his professional uniform during every NBA game, a superstition that connected him to his roots and symbolised luck.

The Air Jordan 3 "Lucky Shorts" will feature a colour palette of "Summit White", "Hydrogen Blue", "Legend Blue", "Photon Dust", "Pure Platinum" and "Sail". These colours are intended to reflect UNC's iconic blue and white tones. The design will include subtle details such as mesh fabric and specific colour blocking that echo the design of the original training shorts.

This release celebrates not only Jordan's college days at UNC, where he led the Tar Heels to an NCAA championship in 1982, but also his illustrious NBA career with the Chicago Bulls, including six championships. The sneaker is expected to be available for €200 in men's sizes, with elementary, pre-school and infant sizes priced at €150, €90 and €75 respectively.
