This year is the 23rd anniversary of the initial release of the Air Jordan III and we’ve seen/will see three of the four original colorways hit retail along with several new looks, but one that’s grabbing some attention despite a doubtful retail status is the above pictured Oregon Ducks exclusive. These UO PE AJIIIs are the same as Dennis Dixon’s, and thanks to this arrangement, we can probably assume that a similar web-toed insignia takes the Jumpman’s place on the black ‘away’ edition as well. Could college-branded PEs finally extend their reach into Jordan Brand’s archives? If so, it’d have to be the Ducks or Tar Heels to earn the first honors. Let us know which you’d rather see first and stick with Sneaker News for more Air Jordan player exclusives. via Stickie213

Nike’s connection with the University of Oregon goes back years before Nike was even created, as a number of Nike’s founders and prominent figures have academic roots at the school. Roughly three weeks ago Sneaker News showed you an Air Jordan III ‘Oregon’ PE, which featured Oregon markings in place of the Jumpman logos. Here we have a look at a White ‘Home’ colorway, which features a White/Black-Cement Grey upper with a dark Oregon green on the outsole and the ‘O’ logo on the tongue. These particular specialties are in the possession of Dennis Dixon, former Oregon Ducks QB and current Pittsburgh Steelers back-up. Do you prefer these over the Black/Yellow colorway? Check out the extra shot below and let us know what you think.
