A new J Balvin sneaker is here.

The Air Jordan 3 is a famous sneaker by Jordan Brand. It's part of Michael Jordan's line of shoes and the design is simple but stylish. It has a mid-top shape that's good for support and the Air Jordan 3 was first released in 1988. It has a unique feature: a visible air cushion in the sole. This makes it comfortable for walking and playing sports. One special thing about the Air Jordan 3 is the elephant print on the upper part- it adds a cool texture to the shoe. In short, the Air Jordan 3 is a classic sneaker known for comfort and style.

Renowned music artist J Balvin partnered with Jordan Brand for a significant collaboration, resulting in the creation of the J Balvin x Air Jordan 1 sneaker. Infused with vibrant and exuberant colors, this sneaker design resonates with J Balvin's distinctive aesthetic. Boasting an intricate palette that encompasses shades of blue, green, and pink, the sneaker's sole mirrors this dynamic color scheme. J Balvin's signature smiley face logo graces the heel, adding a personal touch to the design. J Balvin expressed that he wanted the sneaker to feel joyful and positive.
