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?

Judging from the photo (given the Steel 10s in the background), I'm guessing this will be a Black Friday release.

"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

DrSwoosh

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

 @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.

 @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.

@_KingYerp Both are for the hype -_-

 @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.

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
