This Saturday represents a chance to get off to a strong start with your back to school shopping, including the only original 1988 Air Jordan III colorway that didn’t retro during the shoe’s 23rd anniversary in 2011. The ‘Fire Red’ Jordan 3 is also the only pair of Threes with an all-black Elephant print, as this particular edition went ‘tonal’ before we had a word for it. We’re right around the corner from the August 3rd release date at retailers like Nohble, or you can bypass all the lines and snag a pair now on eBay.
Air Jordan III
going to buy a 06 pair just for the cause LOVE THIS YEAR OG COLORWAYS !! RETRO 1, RETRO 8 , RETRO 5 ,
this is a super dope og colorway i remember back in 2010 watching videos of the 07s hopping to get a pair. now is my chance.
These are a dope classic. Some guy on twitter alleged that he wore them once and showed a pic with massive cracking. Hope he's wrong or just got a bad pair
over here retail is 170€...sorry but they're putting the prices so high I call it robbery ... Obviously plenty of people will pay that price but they've reached the point where I draw the line ... a couple of years ago the white cements and black cements were like 130€/140€ ... dunno bout y'all but the index over here didn't went up like that ...
@Menchion same here. and they crack the worst out of any of the Jays too me. I hate that cracking shyt
@JManSam Cement IIIs had the same issue. It's random, some pairs are good some crack after one wear. The BRED IVs and the thunder has it too.
@JManSam You never really know. My Bred IVs cracked on the first wear and my Military IVs were fine. I love IIIs, so I'm taking a chance on these.
@DynomitesoulReck truth! €170 is crazy money when they were €130 like two years ago... most models don't even sell out (here in ireland anyway!)
@DugLast @JManSam bred IV's just started cracking/paint chip. i'm about to buy the shoe paint and repaint them, but I prolly wore them bitches at least a good 20 times before none of that shyt. You might have just got a bad pair
Cav IV's wore prolly same amount of times and nothing, bitches is still clean, think they made those with very good quality
same shit happened with my thunder 4's.i was pissseddd cuz i really liked the shoe itself and the colorway.ended up selling them the other day.if they cracked on wear 1 what do you think will happen on wear #2 ? lol
@dgk905 same here ... they're definitely NOT flying off the shelves ... instead they gather dust ...
@JFresh_136 Well the thing is with shipping it evens out so they know that ... retro jordans blew up here these last few years so nothing you can do really ... Luckily I'm set jordan wise and I'm into loads of other styles to keep the addiction going without feeling robbed when buying a pair ... I'll keep my eye out though cause like a lot of recent jordan releases they'll end up on sale sooner or later ...
It'll last till people stop buying it, which will probably never happen. Might be easier to let someone buy them in the US and ship them over, would probably cost less lol.
