Black History Month is officially here; the month of February marks the commemorative period during the year in which important events of African American history are remembered and celebrated. Jordan Brand is doing its part by releasing a special colorway of the Air Jordan III in Black/Gold – Black to represent the color of basketball shoes worn in the 60’s, and Gold to symbolize glory and the push for greatness. The Air Jordan III ‘Black History Month’ features a number of interesting details, like the replacement of the signature AJIII elephant print with the tribal African graphic. The insoles also feature special imagery – the left insole with a great Black History Month logo and the right with a strong message that reads ‘Overcome the odds. Make an impact on your sport. Change the world.’ Continue reading for another detailed look at the Air Jordan III ‘Black History Month’ and to cop a pair of these Jordans weeks before the release date, grab this size 8.5 pair from powertowin07 on eBay.
