The much anticipated Air Jordan III ’88 retro has a release date of February 6th. The sneakers serve as one of the most unexpected drops in a long time, both because of the long awaited ‘Nike Air’ treatment on the back end and the fact that the Air Jordan III saw a pretty thorough retro run just two years ago. The pair comes as an NBA All-Star tribute, specifically referencing Michael Jordan’s slam dunk championship from that year (the February 6th release date ending on the same day of that moment 25 years ago). Continue reading for the latest photos and remember that the Air Jordan III ’88 ‘White/Cement’ release date is February 6th, and as far as we know Nikestore will be the only place to get them (but we’ll keep you updated should other retailers pop up).

UPDATE: The Air Jordan III Retro ’88 is not exclusive to Nikestore and will be available at other select Jordan Brand retailers.

UPDATE: It has been confirmed by Jordan Brand that the release date is February 6th.

Hello, I am looking for the retro 3 white clement for a very long time.

there is no place that I did not ask ..

I called the store so footlocker because I've heard that the release day occurs since. Some said only in Holland some thinks in a certain region and the others said in no case in Germany ..

Do you know if they come out in Germany? yes where and whom, and when? Thanks in advance! :)

For anyone looking for information about the UK release I have just been told by a rep instore at Nike Town London that the date has been pushed back to Saturday 23rd March.  I was told that a midnight release was likely although not yet confirmed.

Just got off the phone with nike, it is only a nikestore twitter release only. The guy also gave me a heads up on a random restock which could drop at stores or online stores so be watching & waiting he said bcuz it was more than 20,000 pairs made then what ppl assume. He said these should restock like the concords, breds, & thunder did for a bit not as many but in the same fashion. So hopefully what he said is accurate but things can change he said but so far its a go. Hopefully this can put sum of you a bit at ease

Just so y'all know.. The Nike Air Hang tag is not even the correct hang tag that came out in 88. Since Nike wanna be all OG style about it... At least correct the hang tag lol.. The OGs had a flat plastic Nike Air hang tag, similar to the tag that dropped in 2001 w blk cement 3s. The one shown here is the hang tag that debut in Spring of 89 with Military Blue 4s. Chuck Norris has spoken.. You may now sit down. ;)

Obviously I'm just trolling & being sarcastic about my comments with the gullible young bucks on here lol. There's no age limit to being a fan of shoes or just because you weren't around or you didn't exist at the time doesn't make you better than someone who has lived to experience this particular shoe & era (which was an awesome era btw) . Example I love classic cars & some cars that I love were around before I was even born but regardless I still appreciate & admire that car. Same applies with retro shoes. Shit young kids love dinosaurs and who the hell was around when they roamed the earth to admire them?? Lol.. Again I was messing with these individuals & will continue to mess with them because they're ignorant & uneducated. If you love shoes you love shoes and that's awesome at any age. Just know your history to appreciate them even more.

I read these comments with interest and the many other debates like this on other social media platforms. I come from a slightly different perspective as a 38 year old British sneaker (or trainer as it is here) enthusiast. I was there at the beginning but I don't think that gives me any status over those who were not. In the Uk in the late 80's we were always a bit behind the US releases and it was not till the 4 that you could buy Jordan's in UK high street shops. As such the fire red and black cement 4's will always be my favourite Jordan's as the first I was able to own bought with my own money from my first Saturday job etc. And that's the thing with OG's and those that had them, there is an emotional connection to it as well as a physical, especially to this new run of Jordan's with Nike Air on the back as that's what makes them as close to the originals we use to own. Does that make me a more valid owner of these new pairs and therefore I should be given priority over a young guy? Of course not. Am I more of a "head" than an 18 year old just getting into the game confused about the history? No it does not. I was not alive when teh Beatles are together but I still ove and enjoy their music as much as my parents who were. Every generation will have its unique sunpbjective culture and anyone who was a teenager in teh late 80's early 90's was very lucky to be that age at a time when sneaker design and awareness was at its creative peak. In 4 short years we were able to just go in to a regular store at a a regular time and buy Air Max 1, light and 90. Air trainer SC, TW etc. Air Jordan 3, 4, 5 and 6 amongst many other hits from Tinkers prime. Never since apart from maybe the 11's has there been another period in trainer design like that so you can't blame the younger generation for wanting to be part of it with the rehashes available today. If you want the kicks buy them wether that to be to rock or collect. It does not matter, if you have earned the money legitimately then you have earned the right to buy them. That's capitalism for you and Nike (along with Apple, adidas etc) are the perfect exploiters of that. However buy them because you like them (to wear or collect it does not matter), not because someone else hypes them or because you are going to sell them for double the price. We need to educate younger guys not belittle them.

IT IS SOO FUNNY HOW MAD YOU "ORIGINAL COLLECTERS" ARE MAD BECAUSE JORDAN BRAND IT MESSING UP YOUR GAME. NOW YOU FU.CKERS CANT SELL YOU OG JORDANS FOR $400+ AND NOW PEOPLE WHO ARE "NEWER" TO THE GAME HAVE AN OPPERTUNITY TO GET THEIR HANDS ON THESE SHOES. AND TO  ALL THE HYPEBEASTS AND FUCKBOYS, DONT EVEN BOTHER COPPING THESE SHOES BECAUSE IT WONT MAKE YOU COOL. AND I WILL PISS ON YOUR SHOES IF YOU CALL THEM OG. I WILL TAKE OUT MY PENIS AND PUT MY URINE ALL OVER YOUR SNEAKERS IF YOU CALL THESE 2013 WHITE CEMENT 3'S OG.  ANYWAYS....BE SAFE, LET NO ONE GET KILLED, FOR THEY ARE JUST SNEAKERS. AND BOYCOTTS, LOL NOT GONNA WORK, JORDAN BRAND HAS ALREADY MADE THEIR MONEY ONCE THE SHOE HITS THE SHELVE OF YOUR LOCAL STORE.

Any body at ANY age can get there sneaker on. This OG head Vs young kids shit is just stupid. If you're hating on somebody not wanting them to have something, chances are you're just a stunter and not a sneakerhead anyway. Some people are just so ELITIST. The more people into sneakers the better. If you're getting sneakers coz you love the brand, the shape, the colours, the man behind it(player or designer), thats all right in my books. If you're getting it JUST to impress others, then you might find that there's just not much of a point. That props thing is fleeting. Better to have substance of character(confidence/intelligence), and try and rock a GR with style, than a 'Limited' shoe and No style.

You should blame the brand as opposed to stockists or re-sellers. Nike made them limited, they know the demand is there. They make billion dollar profits each year, biggest company in the world... so they can AFFORD to make more. But they don't. As if everyone killing each other over them is worth more to them in terms of publicity, than having happy and content(but quiet) customers.

old school on you new schoolers, still i dont copp jordans... i leave these for the sheep's... No shots at anyone!! but if you feel some way... well idc

It ticks me off too see people bash someone calling them a "fake sneaker head" an all that bs like dude I'm sure u started at one point or another just because you started earlier than someone else does not make you better if you really think about it there are about the same amount of sneaker heads now as back then but technology has made it so its easier access for everyone. I'm just saying if you are a sneaker head fuck it you're a sneaker head if you like a shoe buy it an don't complain

You know what's the good part......if I don't get to copp em, IDGF!!!!! It's a fucking sneaker. If I really, REALLY wanted them shits, I'll just wait in my car and scope one of u bitches out. Put a knife in the back of your neck, and take it. But It's not worth it......but I will copp these. If is not too much of a hassle ;-)

People need to stop arguing about Nike Air and which Jordans are worth getting, let's just be real, if you love the product and you're a Jordan head, you want these. Retail is what it is because of people like me, I'm not ashamed to admit it. I'll pay whatever Nike says it is until I can't pay it. I'm an addict, they're my dealer. And Nike Air? thats the prime cut

So they CAN put 'Nike Air' on the heels still. Good, now just do it on EVERY release! I grew up on Nike Air Jordan... not the Jordan Jordan. And with the extra help from Nike, they now have the money to use actual GOOD quality materials too. Now give me a Blk Metallic V, or a DTRT Cement IV.
