The Air Jordan III “Fire Red” 2013 retro is another of the surprise Air Jordan III pairs we’ve got to look forward to this year. We say surprise because, let’s face it, nobody expected the coveted Air Jordan silhouette to be back so soon after the pretty thorough retro treatment that spilled out back in 2011. As you can see the pair is looking pretty on point, keeping intact some of the more minute details like the fire red hit under the tongue and the recently brought back hang tag. Continue reading for the full teaser and tell us if you approve of the “Fire Red” Air Jordan III for 2013 so far.

I've still got my pair and want another but that's only if the paint won't chip. If so, I'd just be better off restoring my pair. They're pristine except for the chipping
Even though the Jordan 3 midsole is notorious for cracking even with minimal wear, these are definitely on my pick up list for this year.
Man, it would be a miracle to cop these since J's these days disappear into oblivion then end up on eBay for $350+ smfh. I wonder if Jordan Brand is gonna release the AJ III "DTRT" as well. "Expect the unexpected" saying goes hahaha....
These feel like a back to school type of release. Something like late August/Early September. I'm planning to get these as long as pricing stays the same.
Mid sole will start cracking in about 6 months even if you only wear them 4 or 5 times....hard to get excited over 3's or 4's when they just fall apart so fast.
Had these back in 07 around my birthday....still got em' but they are beat up so it's a must that I cop again!!
I remember when these retroed back when I was a Jr. in High School. Its crazy that JB only brought these back once in 7 years but retroed all the 3 of the other OG colorways constantly. Well I wont be missing these this time around, I got my own $ now Lol
Nice to see these back. Still baffles me why they made the elephant print so dark on both these and the '06's. Regardless, undisputed classic.
Damn couldn't get some better pics?.. but I'm def copping, the reason I pass up on the "fire red" 5s collection that releasing this year.
@MarioCurry What do you mean 2011's these didnt come out then?
@Jrider01 6 months? My '07s cracked the first day I wore them (I did wait 4 years to wear them though)
@Jrider01 this is very true. This is why im on the fence about this offer im being presented with for the 3 true blues
@JROB003 Stop it please.
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite where are your paranormans in that pic!?!?!? you're such bs
@LittleDavis tumble leather can be cheap to my nigga dont let looks fool you.
@fnl3 Preciate that. That just made my decision a whole lot easier, PASS
@fnl3 my opinion
