Perfectly Pink in this Air Jordan Retro 3 “Pink Rust”Published:
May 28, 2021
The color Pink has had its fair share of cultural appropriation for as long as I can remember. The catchphrase “Pretty in Pink” gave the impression that if you’re having a baby shower expecting a girl, then the soft hue of Pink is the ideal choice. Based on gender, this carries on to items of clothing and shoes alike. I, however, came up in an era where this normalcy was disrupted by a Harlem slick talker by the name of Cam’Ron who changed the game forever. The Diplomats team Captain shocked the world when he started to wore Pink furs, spoke on Pink flip phones, and drove around in a pink Range Rover. The result was men and boys alike started to wear the color with pride. This trend transcended from Manhattan, New York to the entire world.
Fast forward to today, guys and gals love to wear the color pink if it’s done with style. With Brand Jordan making dope colorways in the color Pink for men or women, it’s been pandemonium to secure a pair no matter what gender the sneakers were meant for. With the slated release of the Retro 3 dripped in a “Pink Rust” finish, the shoe is destined to be sought after by both genders because of its flashy finish. With earlier releases dropping in a similar hue, it is clear that the summer vibes are in full effect. This woman exclusive is expanding the female collection, that male sneakerheads are craving for as well. Pleasant touches like floral filters are there, while the translucent sole is visually captivating. The upper is Nubuck with Grey dominant overlays. The accents on the heel clip are dripped in Infrared as the lace units are colored in smooth Sail. From toe to heel lies the notorious cement cracks of elephant print bringing the animal out of kick enthusiasts. With ‘Jumpman’ embroidery-stitched to perfection, this colorway is ready for the Summer indeed.
The Air Jordan Retro 3 “Pink Rust” is out on 05/28/2021 on www.dtlr.com and at local DTLR/VILLA locations.
