The Nike Air Jordan 3 “Fear” Creeps Into Halloween

The pack from 2013 is rumored to return in holiday season 2023.


[Update 7 Nov 2023] Months since the last update, official images of the Nike Air Jordan 3 “Fear” have finally emerged ahead of its 25 November release date. Find them on Nike SNKRS then with an RRP of US$200.

[Update 11 Jul 2023] On-feet images of the Nike Air Jordan 3 “Fear” have now surfaced, courtesy of @yankeekicks. Take a look at them on the top slider above as we expect the pair’s arrival on 25 November.

[Update 20 Mar 2023] The retro release of the Nike Air Jordan 3 “Fear” will take place in October, coinciding with Halloween.

Although, this time around, we probably won’t receive a complete “Fear Pack”, which originally consisted of an AJ4 and an AJ5, the AJ3 “Fear” is reportedly going to be released in Full Family Sizing.

The retail prices of the Air Jordan 3 “Fear” collection start from US$75 for Toddler (TD) and go up to US$210 for Men’s sizes. Stay tuned for more updates, including the official images and actual release date.


Indeed, it’s the most wonderful time of the year, made even sweeter by Jordan Brand. Already rumored to return during the holiday season is the Air Jordan 11 “DMP”, sans pack, and the Air Jordan 1 “Satin Bred”, said to be a women’s exclusive this time around. Completing the trinity of highly-anticipated drops is the Air Jordan 3 “Fear Pack”—sans pack.

Originally released in 2013 along with the Air Jordan 4 and 5, the trio gives nods to the brand’s “Be Legendary” marketing campaign from 2008. It’s inspired by the theme of conquering one’s fear spotlighted during the commercials. It’s strongly alluded to on the insole graphics with the imprint: “I’m scared of what I won’t become” and “And you’re scared of what I could become.”

The color scheme naturally takes on a more ominous, somber tone with dark palettes washing over the pair. Slate suede forms the base of the upper, accented by the hallmark elephant prints on the mudguard and heel counter. The midsole below it sees a gradation between light to dark as it traverses through the circumference of the shoe, with speckling appearing as it moves to the rear.

All of the above are supported by a white midsole and black outsole underfoot. For some of its most notable details, consider the Jumpman in a conspicuous orange on the tongue, in stark contrast to the background in black. Likewise, standing out as well in a darker hue is the orange on the eyestays adjacent to it, and the eyestays at the bottom, near the vamp.

Nothing much is known about the pair other than what’s already available during its first release. Although rumored to return before the year ends, anything can change from now until then. Regardless, should there by any, expect an update from us here when any word or image comes to light. If you can’t wait that long, you can get the original 2013 release from our Global App.
