Don’t consider the return of the Air Jordan III ‘White/Cement’ in just two years such a surprise, because it’s clear that Jordan Brand will jump at any available opportunity. Need a reminder? In 2010, we were graced with the Air Jordan VII ‘Olympic’ in the ‘For the Love of the Game‘ edition, and just two years later, the Olympic VII hit stores again. This return of the White/Cement III also comes with a slight branding alteration, with Nike Air now donning the heel (as well as the insole and the hang-tag). Are these already the must-have Air Jordan release of the Spring 2013 season, or are your 2011 Retros holding you down?
Air Jordan III ’88
i'm not huge AJ head. I had og's as a kid growing up but stopped at the 11's. The quality of these look cheap but I haven't had a pair of 3's since I was 9? If I can find the without having to pull a miracle i'll cop them
Hey did you guys know that Jordan Brand is re-releasing that Air Jordan III White/Cement, but this time with Nike Air on the back?
These r dope i like 3s didnt get 2011s so ill try n cop 4sure wont try ebay if i end up not winning the lottery at foot locker or champs and wtf posting em again lol wow
It's cool that these are coming out. Having said that, I feel 2011 was the last year someone could actually buy a pair of sneakers they REALLY wanted easily. I got my 3's no prob, and they are my favorite of all time. These? Good luck getting close to them.
"Need a reminder?" No, not really SN. We already know about these. As hard as this may be for you guys, just hold off on showing us any more pics of these until you have an official release date.
And this my friends is why I say because we live in the era of the Internet & because social media is so big you can't call everybody a Hypebeast! We live in the era of Hype... My girl saw this shoe on bossip.com! Lol so right now they are building more hype so the sneaker heads will get in to beast mode and cop the sneaker! Hahaha it's only Jan. 3 I expect at least 3 or 4 more post on this sneaker & someone like WestBrook to wear it in a game... & BOOM! Galaxy foamposite who? Big Bang what?!?! The Galaxy is still a "Penny"! The Dave White Retro 1 didn't get nowhere near the hype nor the YOTD spizike the Galaxy pack pooped on JB... So MJ is comin back to take the throne! Rumor is Lebron was Nike's #1 selling signature athlete beating out MJ & he IS the only athlete other than MJ to release 10 signature shoes... Hummm? Is this true? Is MJ making a statement? Feel free to debate.... :) Instagram - "TheHeirOfDaLou"
Just release them already. Stop trying to re-word the same sh!t over and over again. Bet they post again by the end of Monday.....Bet?
As awesome as they are I don't think ill get since I have them from only 2 years ago basically new still. I heard the bc3s will get the same treatment. If the fire reds do which I don't have then ill obviously cop. I love the Nike but there's too much this year for me to reup on these.
You want to know who hypes everything up? Shoe sites like this. Damn SN we don't need pictures everyday. Show us what they look like and they leave it for awhile. It only makes the hype worse when sites like this post so many pictures.
well i aint get a pair in 2011 missed out and im loving these. the only pair of js ill be copping this year. ill take these over the grapes and 1s
The Jordan on the bottom should make the OG heads/collectors happy, all the while allowing this younger generation to feel somewhat close to having the original. Also heard from my friends out in Houston that these are gonna be an on-sight (@ Houston during all star week) release. Anyone know if this is true or not? After all the violence that took place over the Bred aka, playoff aka, black and red 11's, I could def see J/b and Nike doing this to avoid someone getting merked in the street.
Does have the OG cement cut. But the Jordan logo on bottom throws it off. Any word on the leather quality?
I know last time I was kind of upset about this release because I do have the 2011's but I think now I am going to get these because the NIKE AIR branding is important to me.
@ac2slater you know they will... :D
@crownmeking314 actually i think allen iverson has release over 10 signiture shoes as well, im not sure tho
@crownmeking314 like u said rumor, didnt u read the article or blogs just a few months ago where the air jordan retros alone outsold and currenting selling more then lebron, kobe, kd, drose, etc, all these guys alone. Again just the retros so imagine the number if they throw in all of jb shoe products like the cp3, melo's, spi'ikes, son of mars etc. Yes lebron outsell kobes and but he far from jordan. Lebrons are heavily on shelves still now when they do a limited type or exclusive yes it sells alone with the kd's and kobes. Jordan gross more than any other athlete here in the shoe game so whoever said that should slap they self and I hope u didnt believe it. So theres really no debate in that area, I will say that yes ur right about the galaxy being a big pop but thats just a small percentage
@Cop em and Rock em today and tomorrow...
@Fosterakahunter not me, LOL
@JManSam Not trying to go at you, but where did you hear that about the bc3s? A friend of mines who's father works with the Bobcats said Michael and J/b spent nearly a year just trying to make this happen for his 50th Bday/25th anniversary of the slam dunk and 3s.
@xukyle Thats some real fuckery you just said
@xukyle The reason they keep re-posting things is probably because of the amount of times we all click on these articles. If no one was clicking and reading i don't think they would re-post as much. Basically it's our fault.
@Jumpfan23 How about all Js 3s, 4s, 5s and 6s... Sure, I'll believe it when I see it.
@Staxx5001 it will still be the same old cheapy kind of leather, I'm sure of it!
@Staxx5001dude the leather is going to be the same no matter what style of js are comming out its all synthetic shit
@bfresh89 wow, why are you buying the same shoe my nigga
@bfresh89 TYPICAL hypebeast buying shit for the status and logo and not actually the shoe whats the point of have 2 pairs of the same exact kicks. its people like you are the reason i didnt get my white cement 4s.
my friend always informs me of upcoming releases from his sources. not exactly sure where he finds it, and i was skeptical when he first started. but hes been right with everything like telling me about thunders way early, lightnings, etc. and thats sick with the mj thing btw. do u have any other info from him lol
@Born2fly Because I can.
@gotjordans Bro was coming @ me on hypebeast sh#t. So I had to let him know who he's throwing shots at.
@CreatedByLeon1 WTF are u?, u don't know who I am. You wouldn't know that I'm 23 & have been in this game since I was 16. You wouldn't know that I own a pair of 1994 White Cement Retro's handed down to me from my uncle from when he was a teenager. I don't give a damn about you not getting your cement 4's which by the way are TECH GREY not LIGHT CEMENT GREY like the 89's or 99 Retros which I also have so I'm FAR from being a hypebeast bro. & if its my choice to buy another pair of cement 3's then that's my choice & my hard earned money. I don't give a damn about the logo on the back either it would just be nice to own a pair with the NIKE AIR on the back that I can actually wear without them crumbling. I bet you don't even know that if it wasn't for the Nike Air Revolution's the Air Jordan 3 would not exist. Do your homework before you start coming at somebody you don't know homie.
@CreatedByLeon1 @bfresh89 Forget about hyped up newbies man, when i see comments like that close one eye you dig, let em be that shit shouldnt bother real J heads that know the game since back then. Im over excited they decided to do this because of what it means for me personally just like last year's cement 4s that dropped
@JManSam That's what's up! Nah man, they say he's pretty hush about things involving J/B around the Bobcats organization (kinda weird if you ask me). However, he's very generous in giving kicks and apparel out to the arena staff and team execs. Thanks for the BC3 info. That's def a good look if legit.
