The new colorways bring the sounds and color featured on the album to Air Jordan’s classic silhouette along with suede body details and leather laces. The inner soles feature references to the album such as the quotes “Fame is a lie” on the left shoe and “Stress is cruel” on the right.

The Air Jordan III JTH product was influenced by Timberlake’s tribute to his wife, “Higher Higher.”

 “It’s really about the idea that no matter what we have in life, our relationships are the most important thing. Money, fame, success are all fleeting, whereas a real relationship will last for the long haul,” says Timberlake.

A previous version, knowns as the “Two Minute Warning” shoe, originally debuted during Timberlake’s performance at the Super Bowl LII Halftime show in February.

The Air Jordan III JTH will be released Aug. 28.
