With the year-long celebration of the twenty-third anniversary of the Air Jordan III coming to a close after this weekend’s Black Flip drop, it’s time to ponder all the Air Jordan IIIs in history. Which colorway made an impact for you? With several original colorways vying for the top spot and a number of Retro+ and Lifestyle colorways to have released over the last decade, one man’s list may differ quite a lot from the next. Complex recently compiled their list of best Air Jordan IIIs of all-time, going with the recently re-released Black/Cement III as the best in history, and following it with thirteen other impressive selections. Check out a quick sampling of their list below, and let us know what your favorite Air Jordan III is!

Yeah I agree you can't compare the 3 to the 11's at all. Every patent leather authentic Jordan I seen looks far better,has better quality materials, and definitely lasts longer. I still have my black and red joints from 2002 and they're still wearable.
First of all the 3's ARENT better than the 11's period! The 11's always sell out easily and it only comes out once a year....not the whole year like the 3's!
Db 3's are the best color way ever made. Black and red 3m, lasered red nubuck, and ice blue sole u guys are crazy if u don't think there the best Jordan ever
Honestly, I never was too big on 3's, because of the elephant print. But the White Cements and the Pure Moneys are my favorites. The White Cements were the first to help the 3's grow on to me, because it had very small touches of the red and black. Plus, they had the Nike Air logo. And the Pure Moneys just takes the cleanliness to another level. Just gotta watch where you step in those.
proud to say i own every 3 on their list except da mocha's... 3's always have been my favorite J shoe... but overall a great list, da blk cement's are obviously #1. especially after dis past friday lol... thought those "Do The Right Thing" 3's should of been in da top 5 tho.
I remember I seen some black and red 3 online a couple of years back on niketalk, I wish they would release those to the public.
for me the best IIIs have ever been true blues... but after they re-re-retroed em they are not so wanted
In my opinion the white cements 3s are the only retro 3s that look better with the jumpman instead of the Nike Air on it
