It seems as if every Air Jordan III to release in 2013 is doomed to be judged against the standard set by the “Nike Air” sporting Retro ’88 pair. This, the forthcoming “Fire Red” Air Jordan III re-issue, falls just a little bit short of the benchmark set by said pair, but we can’t imagine that will result in them flying off of retail shelves any less quickly. Continue reading to see a full set of shots on the 2013 Air Jordan III “Fire Red”, which will mark the first time this colorway has been back in the new hangtag era, and tell us in the comments if they’ll be in your rotation come August.
Air Jordan III
Thanks to City Sole
The ones who are talking shit about these are the ones who want them the most but can't get them....I cop what I like, not what other people like...
save it sneakernews commenters... saying the shoe is ugly etc is not going to work... I realize that you are trying to bring hype down.... but it's not gonna happen... u might as well just be honest
On the Originals the cement print was more of a Mid/dark Charcoal color it wasn't Black like the 07's & this year's release.
I still have mine from the last release in great condition. Pass for me. For those who say these look naturally creased, they are called tumbled leather. It's meant to look like that. And I am a big fan of tumbled leather. All the OG colorways for the 3s look like this. Kids these days have no idea. SMH.
Love to cop, but can not get them all- hopefully they will release more of thes, with clean, mostly one color look !, like it like it was !, not too much supernovaish :-)
I remember I was a Junior in High School when these were retro'd, I couldn't get them back then didn't have a job. But I definitely will be getting these this time around. My second favorite OG AJ3 Colorway next to the White Cements.
Just copped some retro 88s from coolshoeshines.com so I think its about that time for the fire reds too. My 07s are still crispy but I think I will cop another pair just to refresh the wardrobe. They look hella nice
I work at a sneaker store and we got these in this week and all i can say is im very disappointed in the quality of these 3
im waiting for the fear 5s then ill jump to holiday season taxi 12s and possibly laney 5s. im not too hyped for jays anymore. but the start of next year looking good.
Dope tho but I will have to pass...way more heat dropping this year before the $170 mark for 2014 lol
@buthes7665 Hey, I was looking to order some concords from them.. Are they legit?? can you please send me pics of your 88's.. firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks
@BThomas1 What kind of conspiracy shit you on? That was real stupid. This shoe is wack.
So what's your point dude? These are retros not Ogs so there will always be changes with retros my nig....
@Sneak'freak .....haha.....u bitch nigga!i know u gone be with them other woman dudes in line to cop those and wear em with yo skinny jeans....lol.
@Lusinmader i have a feeling the hype for those will be very very very extreme :(
@Lusinmader oh dem cement joints?i saw those in 2k and i really want them
yea i wouldnt hold my breath.if they didnt give the bc3's(a fukn classic) good quality paint and midsoles i highly doubt they would on these.which is sad because the 3's are one of the best looking jordans and yet they fuck up on every1 after wear 2-3
@RoyalPapi oh really.
@jusplayn IM GONNA TRY I STILL NEED SCHOOL CLOTHES AND ETC
