Purists may flip their wigs at this one, but with Jordan Brand bringing out almost every OG colorway of the Air Jordan III this year, surely we’re due for a brand new edition. The version shown above goes heavy on the elephant print, borrowing from the Flips of a few years back and letting them fade to black a considerable amount. This marks the second time this year we’ve seen the classic elephant print done in black, the other being on the highly anticipated Entourage SB’s. As usual the team at RMK has these Air Jordan III’s ahead of the release date, so grab a pair there if you like how they look after the jump.
Air Jordan III
Lled the 1st round of pics and I'm still feeling these...hype-beast, get of the wagon, ur sitting on one....hahaha....these r cray, good stuff Jordan, its good to see some effort put into yhe color schemes...
wwwaaayyyyy beter than the original flips, not sure about these and the black/cements too tho. probably just 1 overpriced pair of j's this fall
I like these better than the cements but I would turn around and be like when the black cats rereleasing I'm cop those
Own the the Black Cats and still pickin these up , the 3's always work "blacked out" from the Cats,to the Black history Months to these, all simple but Noticeably sharp shoes
Its getting so old seeing all the little sheep on here saying "i didnt like em at first, but there growing on me". Every damn new colorway or model is filled with these useless comments after more detailed pics of a model are surfaced. When at first every damn body says "pass" or "ugly". Do yourselves a favor and comment when your "sure" about how YOU feel about em. Ps, i like these, but will not pass up black cements for them.
I have a funny feeling these AJ III "Black Flip" are going to release the same day as the AJ III "Black Cements" on Black Friday.
I definitely did not like these when i first saw em but they've kinda grown on me...i still probably won't cop em tho
They should just drop the DB 4's sometime around Halloween time. Cause Thanksgiving & Christmas time are gonna be crazy.
