Air Jordan devotees the world round have a dilemma on their hands: to buy the Air Jordan III ’88 ‘White/Cement’ or not? Yes the pair just came out two years ago, but this one features the ‘Nike Air’ on the back, and you’ve been begging for that little element on message boards since you had to log on with a dial-up modem. So what’s it gonna be? If you need some help deciding we’ve got you covered with another preview of the much debated Air Jordan III ’88, so check it out after the jump and tell us what you think.
Air Jordan 3 Retro ’88
White/Fire Red-Cement Grey-Black
Filed under: Just Released
I'm done complaining. If you don't have the 2011s, the $200 isn't really a big deal. Good luck with the hunt.
I copped 6 pairs back in 2011...LOL
Why da f*** would I cop the 2013's?? F dat...
I'm waiting for the IV's with the Nike swoosh!
I'll double-up on these so I can sell one pair for $400+, and get mine for free. You know what they say, there's a sucker born every minute.
$200? Really? They still say "Jordan" on the bottom. Not worth $200 for that. The only people rushing to stand in line for these are re-sellers, hypebeasts, and chicks who think they are "cute" sneakers...not real sneaker collectors. You might as well put the extra $50 on top and cop the XX8s...
February is getting closer and closer but still there is no official release date for these....just pictures creating all hype. Lets get the release date on these!!
If u dont get them dont trip you know there going to release the true blues and black cements with nike air on them 2
Lookin good....now question how many crazy pple gonna line up for these? And will these be a general release or sme bullshit limited editon release like those 13s that came out last week. Jus sayin you gotta have enough for the big footed pple as well
at first I was like "maybe da quality is actually better" but these pics show me that its not. WELL at least they aren't pre-cresed like the 2011s.. but yeah I am content with my 2011s, don't have any need to drop money on these
Smh soooo you mean to tell me for $200 & I'm ONLY gonna get "Nike Air" on the back on insert?! Why not put it on the bottom of the shoe too?!? JB stay trippin
Cant be mad with Nike/Jordan Brand... these cash cows are looking like geniuses for the past decade...Make a sneaker, release it and rerelease it every year or two, charge $200, release only to large retail stores and twitter followers, then do it again with a different color... Fuk buying these sneakers from these companies, purchase the stock in the company...
man the hype is increasing with every pic. we seen 12 different times and probably will see them again about 9 mkre time. thats just how the sneaker game is now i guess.
This is how you have hype beasts . You must have showed over 100 different pics of the same shoe on top of a 200 $ price tag. Perfect example of how people are getting huatled
damm SN, im pretty sure we get it. all this does is make a MF even more mad and more hype.. Let it go already!
definately picking these up..Dont really care for the Nike Air just love 3s and only got a pair of semi-beat 03's
Oh shit they look exactly how they looked in the other 100 pictures -.- stop building the hype and give a release date
Aren't the fire reds suppose coming this year? Why can't nobody get pick of those or any other retro that we haven't seen for 2013?
do the jordan 3's even last long? I heard these babies starts creasing after the first 2 weeks. cause if these do last long, I might cop
@cliffstrong They still say "Jordan" on the bottom - you gonna wear them sh!ts upside down?? What's the difference between a guy buying them because he thinks they look nice and a girl buying them because they look cute? They're both buying them for the way they look... I know for damn sure if I caught a glimpse of them walking along the street I'd rather look up and see that they're attached to a girl.
Sorry, I take all that back. What I meant to say was - keep complaining. Because it's awesome.
@boodle81 It's more of an irrepressible stench, isn't it?
@ abuairjordan there were lines for 11s? i can still find them in over 4 stores here
@James Lowery pre creased??? haha lol more like a dude at footlocker was rocking em before you were lol!! and how the fuck can you tell about the quality from a damn picture that doesnt make any sense so you can just STFU
@jpolo23 No they will release them in 2 years again with nike on the bottom too.
And 2 years after that they will color the air unit back to white and make the elephant skin a softer grade. So if we wait another 6 to 8 years we will have all originals again.
@asdfjkln64 Thats what i was thinking. fire reds are coming fall 2013..so i think i could wait for them...they look better anyway
@ricckkyyy yep they crease pretty easy and they are notorious for paint chipping. At least the 2011 3s were.
@TheSneakerGuy .......... you obviously don't own the sneakers... .. . . .. and when i was judging the quality I was looking at the inside colar and the lack of padding...
lol.... have fun being a robot programmed by Nike
