Yep, it’s official, the Air Jordan III Black Cement will see the light of day again in 2011. So there’s no “Nike Air” on the back of these, but that’s a moot point, the quality is on par with the other Air Jordan III retros we’ve seen these year and the mere sight of this long awaited retro has forum posters and sneakerheads hollering “robocop”. These have a rumored Black Friday release date, and the months in between are likely to creep by as we all wait to get our hands on this one. Fortunately, there is hope for you if you can’t stand waiting, as there are a handful of pairs waiting to be had right now on eBay. Hit the jump for more photos of the 2011 version of the Air Jordan III Black Cement and then place your bid on pair from air-randy on eBay.

Air Jordan III Black Cement – 2011 Retro

Few sample sneakers have produced the same kind of outcry as the Air Jordan III Retro that recently popped up in the OG ‘Black Cement’ colorway from 1988.  In those images in question, the colorblocking and appearance from a distance is identical to the original, but instead of the classic mix of smooth leather mudguard/tumbled upper, they were crafted entirely in nubuck.  This had purists and newcomers alike up in arms, complaining that while a revised Three is better than no Three at all, we simply want our retros to be as close as possible to their forebears.  So breathe a collective sigh of release, sneakerheads, for the Air Jordan 3 will indeed hit retailers later this year in its initial makeup, the only significant difference being the heel Jumpman that separate the pre-2000 pairs from more recent drops.  Click through to see more angles of the only model that could possibly push the AJXI from its perch atop the holiday sneaker sales charts and hit up MarqueeSole to check out their limited size run available now.

Sample sneakers are created to give retailers a preview of what to expect on their shelves in the coming seasons while giving designers a chance to improve upon their prototypes.  But in the case of the above pictured model, its design has been finalized since 1988 (2003 if you consider the heel branding), and though they do indeed represent a significant design shift, the purpose of the shoe seems to be more like a splash of cold water in the face.  Wake up, sneakerheads!  One of your all-time favorites is coming back when the Air Jordan III ‘Black Cement’ releases this holiday season, but Jordan Brand wants you to remember how perfect the AJ3 really is/was.  So despite the fact that the retail version will feature the classic black tumbled leather we’ve come to know and love, a sample pair of AJ3s crafted in nubuck has been circulating.  These joints also feature grey suede on the tongue, ankle and eyelets in place of the traditional leather, so what do you think of the material swap?  Click through to leave a comment and see some additional angles and stick with Sneaker News for updates like the ‘Black Cement’ release date.  via MN

Ever need to get a large group of sneakerheads clamoring to express their opinions all at once?  Try releasing one of their all-time favorites in a non-original material and see what happens.  The reaction on the Air Jordan III Black Cement done in nubuck was swift and it was one-sided, the vast majority of thumbed-up comments here on Sneaker News in favor of the legendary 1988 release’s original tumbled leather getup.  A similar change went down with the ‘Flu Game’ Air Jordan XII, a nickname formalized when the famous 1997 NBA Finals away colorway was reproduced with a special insignia commemorating MJ’s heroic feat.  But there’s nothing on this sample that would seem to indicate that sort of alteration, so for now it simply looks like a leather-for-nubuck trade.  Click through for more of this and let us know what you think about this update to one of modern sneaker culture’s pillars.  via kixrus
