Winter is Coming: Air Jordan 3 Retro SE Winterized “Archaeo Brown”

2022 has been a big year for the Air Jordan 3. So far, we’ve seen a wide range of colorways hit shelves, from summer-ready fare like the Air Jordan 3 Retro “Fire Red,” to the more fall-appropriate Air Jordan 3 Retro “Black Cement Gold.” And as we begin to slowly transition into the snowy season, Jordan Brand is gearing up to release a new winterized version of the retro model.

Unlike the classic leather versions of the silhouette, the forthcoming Air Jordan 3 Retro SE Winterized “Archaeo Brown” utilizes sturdy suede for majority of its upper. The toeboxes and quarter panels are given a rich “Archaeo Brown” tone, while a lighter “Fossil Stone” color dresses the mudguards and perforated panels around the eyelets. In place of the typical elephant-print toe bumpers and heel panels, Jordan Brand opts for “Dark Smoke Grey” suede with decorative stitching on this pair.

The earth-toned proposition is broken up with sultry “Light Bordeaux” hits on the lowermost tongues and ankle collars. Standard Jumpman insignias appear on the tongues and the heels.

Foam midsole units are given a vintage cream color, which matches the sneaker’s laces. The colorway is capped off with classic “Cement Grey” rubber outsoles.

The Air Jordan 3 Retro SE Winterized “Archaeo Brown” will be available on and DTLR stores on October 8th for a retail price of $210.
