Father, motivator, hit maker and sneaker collaborator. The latter comes to fruition today in the form of the DJ Khaled x Air Jordan 3 “Grateful” as inspired by Khaled’s upcoming album of the same name.
A DJ Khaled X Air Jordan is about to drop and I’m digging it. The Air Jordan 3 will be the chosen silhouette which will have a red upper with white hits on the Jumpman logo on the tongue as well as on the heel panel. The elephant print is still intact which I think gives the shoe an urban look. They dubbed the shoe as “Grateful” which is what DJ Khaled’s genuinely feels with regards to his success in the music industry. Also, this is also the name of his upcoming 10th studio album. The overall design looks pretty dope with a lot of references like the “We The Best” written underneath the heel logo and inside the heel tab are some inscriptions like #GRATEFUL #WeTheBest and #stillinthemeeting which are references to his personality and work ethic. His Grateful album drops on June 23 and I think it would be around that time that we will be expecting the shoe to drop as well.
Dressed in red leather with traditional grey elephant print, We the Best branding appears behind white Jumpman tagging on the heel, matching the tongue tagging of the same hue. Black midsole hits and eyelet contrast finish off this colorway that almost inverts themes introduced on Derek Anderson PEs of yesteryear.
