Back in 2014, Usher was blessed with an all-gold pair of Air Jordan 3s that is one of the most eye-catching versions of the silhouette you’ll ever see. Here we are years later, and detailed images of the sample sneaker have made their way online, courtesy of enthusiast @englishsole.
It’s being reported that there are only 10 pairs of the all-gold Air Jordan 3s in existence. The special colorway was notably worn by Usher in a 2014 Honey Nut Cheerios commercial and later donned by then-Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving in 2015.
The Jordan 3s boast a reflective gold patent leather upper, with elephant print mudguards. Three stars are embroidered on the exterior of the tongue, while Usher’s name appears on the inside of the tongue. The sneaker is outfitted with tonal laces, as the lone contrast comes in the form of black lining.
This isn’t the first pair of all-gold Jordans Usher has been known to wear, however. He’s also hit the stage in similar colorways of the Air Jordan 9 and Air Jordan 11.
