The Air Jordan III is currently the #3 seed in the Southwest Region of the Sneaker News March Madness OG Air Jordan Tournament, and it rightfully deserves its place near the top of the greatest Jordans of all time. The ‘True Blue’ colorway is one of the originals for the Air Jordan III, and Michael didn’t even wear them until he became a Washington Wizard in 2001. Much to the pleasure (and surprise) of Jordan fanatics, the Air Jordan III ‘True Blue’ is coming back this June (after an overseas exclusive in 2009), but let’s take a look at this original pair from 1988; these feature the ‘Nike Air’ on the heel (no other True Blue release does) and the elephant print is proportionally smaller than the produced version we see today. Truly a collector’s item for the hardcore sneaker enthusiast, this original pair of the True Blue III is not for sale from b.!.z on eBay.
