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

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

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

Great espn is doing a special on em. More hype! Kids that never saw Jordan play or didn't grow up with the shoes can now cop and feel OG.

This is exactly why I passed on the White 88's I only hope I can get my hands on these if they do in fact release.

I passed on the WC release because my pair from 2011 are still DS and it made no sense with no change of quality whatsoever. I also have 2 DS pair sof BC 3's from 2011  and i'm really not looking to buy a 3rd pair but would really like to have a pair with nike air branding but if this release  is later confirmed i;d honestly only cop if I could resellone pair of my BC 3's, other then that ....forget it

It was only a matter of time..

Come on, just because we saw on it on SportsCenter, can we really believe they'll come out now??? Sheesh! 

gotjordans

It just might, and when it does, I'm all over it! :D

What y'all don't know about price increases is that if the price of materials increase so does the over all product. If you complain about $200 + price tag stop because its only gonna get higher. So you can take your cheap ass and get a real job or get off the bandwagon because you too broke & can barely afford a $5 footlong.

i seen this tribute to MJ 50th BDay on sports center.. i guess it wud make sense to release BC 3's after releasing the wc's. i can only imagine wht JB is up to after their hyped 88 release. (JB thoughts -lets NIKE AIR everything, and ohh by the way.. retail is now 200$, muaaaahahahaha- BITCHES!)

DreamChaser

I don told you... well its a good thing for me since my 11 pair are beat and not to mention they all had notable flaws hope I can get a pair

i would cop..want these or the white cement.hand down man down! saw this on espn on the mj shoes part of his 50 bday celebration. while we are on it i think all nike/jordan guys should rock jays for the game sunday since it is his bday!

oh my goodness. the only reason why I didn't cop the white cements was because I was hoping the black would come out later on with the Nike Air also. Guess I made one of the best decisions of my life. IF THESE ARE indeed gonna come out, I am getting these by all means.

A Finish Line and Footlocker Manager told me the retail (in store) for the WC "88" 3's is Saturday March 23.  The same day they drop in Europe.  At first I though one of the managers was feeding me pipe dreams, but when the other manager (at a completely different mall) told me the same thing, it had me wondering.  Either way, I'm still getting the fam in England and Germany to scoop me a pair from their stores.  The Jordan Craze there is high, but nothing like the US.

There's two sides here: yea it's an awesome thing but the majority of us got these and the wcs just 2 years ago! I'm not gonna get into the business aspect bc JB's clearly a genius lol. Sometimes IMO its just too much. I'd like the fire reds to have the Nike on them like the 88s but I doubt that'll happen.

i watched that espn sportcenter  this morning and dvr it while i was at it. i did see those black cements. if these drop man, that would be awesome, i like these more than the white. lets pray they do the right thing and drop them
