Nipsey Hussle dropped his album “Victory Lap” back in February of this year, right around the time that Jordan Brand brought back the iconic “Black Cement” colorway of the Air Jordan 3 during the NBA’s All-Star break in Los Angeles.
In celebration of both, a special edition sneaker was made in honor of the California rapper’s new album, and consignment shop Index Portland has recently revealed images of the exclusive “Victory Lap” 3s. The shoes feature a “VL” logo embroidered in grey near the ankle collar as well as the “VL” logo in red which can be seen through an icy blue translucent sole – a detail that wasn’t utilized on the pair that hit retailers.
Nipsey Hussle is no longer with PUMA, but it’s still unclear whether this Air Jordan 3 will lead to any future partnerships between he and Jordan Brand.
