Air Jordan 3 Retro ’88 “Black/Cement”
Jordan Brand brought back ‘Nike Air’ on the Air Jordan Retro by introducing the original White/Cement colorway of the III as a special tribute to Jordan’s iconic free-throw line Dunk from the ’88 Dunk Contest. Will the ‘Black/Cement’ make a comeback as well? It seems like it could make sense seeing that Michael did in fact wear the ‘Black/Cement’ colorway during that 1988 All-Star Game, during which he dropped forty points and took home the MVP trophy. Is a All-Star Weekend release in the works? If so, these are likely to be as hot of an item as the last time we saw the Air Jordan III ‘Black/Cement’ with ‘Nike Air’ was in 2001 and 1994. This teaser shot was spotted in a preview of an upcoming ESPN special on the Air Jordan and its impactful presence in sports and fashion, so stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates on this potential Air Jordan III Retro ’88 release.
The pure stupidity behind this post. They show a black cement with nike air in a documentary and you assume its a retro that'll release? Is the concept of a deadstock 2001 retro completely foreign to you?

I wish people would stop complaining about the prices. We get it the old days they were cheaper but now you have robots outside waiting for every damn release.. why not raise it? Yall have to wake up. Same dudes complaining be the same dudes outside waiting, hold it down.
*Air Jordan 3 Retro '88* I got a few pairs left. Size 13, 12, 11, 10.5, 10, 9, etc. E-mail me
I have both color white and black cement 3 from last time they came out still never worn, am I suppose to get these now, ... No that would be dumb, the Nike air hype is gone, I think
Judging from the photo (given the Steel 10s in the background), I'm guessing this will be a Black Friday release.
FUCK THEM OVER HYPED ASS 3s, FUCK THAT NIKE AIR BS, U SEE THOSE STEEL 10s IN THE BACK?? NOW THOSE ARE CRACK MY FRIEND...
"if these drop I'm coppin"..man stop, 1/3 of ya'll will be able to get these for retail price, probably way less than that actually. People paying $300-$500 for recently released retros is whats killing the game
Who cares if the paint chips ? They're still bad ass kicks...these are classics! People will never stop buying 11's even though the sole turns yellow after a while... Id rather have a few paint chips than a piss yellow sole... Just sayin
If they do decide to release these with the nike air on the back im definitely gonna cop, just a very nice shoe!
Yerppp I thought the white 88's were for the hype, BUT THESE MY FRIEND ARE A MUST! It's only 200$ anyways that's like a quarter of a paycheck, def coppin favorite AJ's ever!! Now if only they can release the Black Infared VI's with the Nike Air on'em
then what ? 4-5-6 in '89-'90-'91 with a 200$ price tag..just for a bit of hype!..there would be enough MJ memories for every these shoes.. lol
@SkilledHooper82 Fall season!
@KristopherA if you read they did take note its from SC....... They are predicting that its coming out which it obviously will. And the Steels are coming out in fall right along with the taxi 12s.
They are coming out, along with Steel Xs. Been knowing about these 2 for awhile now
@DueyGuison Fall season
@OG83 Yeah if i dont get it online i consider myself done with trying lol I have more than enough sneakers to be satisfied. I actually have fun when going online it gives me a rush knowing im competing with others for my pair lol but if I dont get them, more money in my pocket. Id only over pay for concords and the galaxy foams. Something real dope.
@DrSwoosh It isn't difficult at all to fix yellow soles and it happens at a slower rate. Then again you can always repaint your 3's and 4's. Depends on what you'd rather deal with.
@JasonRobbins because the sign and the leather is thicker they say.... relax
@newsouth912 Comments like these make me wish for the old days when we didn't have sneaker blogs. Back in the good ol days, no one including myself gave a F%CK or B!tched back in the 90's when the paint chipped, their soles turned yellow,or even when your J's creased after 3 wears. Now today's generation complains at the first sign of a crease or wear and tear, as if $160-180.00 warrants anything better than pleather and plastic put together.
@newsouth912 damn right, hope nike solves this, my og pair J's like my 4 coolgreys is way better than this...
@pippowz9 its nike way to ease us into paying rape retail prices for all jordans. dont be a victim
@pippowz9 i heard they will be releasing all of those with Nike air on the back.
@inTheNameofQuen Probably might be worse
Idc about creasing. I've got on my Fire Red IIIs from '97 right now and they look awful because the paint is all chipped off. Would you like to buy a car and the paint starts chipping after a week of driving it? Didn't think so. I'm saying this shoe isn't worth $200 when it's going to look like shit after a few wears. My Griffey's are also chipping. But it's crazy because none of my Spiz'ikes have chipped paint
@Lusinmader @newsouth912 That's because the standards now are way higher and we have less patience for stuff like that. When shoes crease, I've got no problem unless it's all over the shoe and it looks really bad and worn. People expect to get a bang for their buck but that's not how it works. Unless you go buy some Gucci leather I guarantee it'll stay the same
