In 2009, Jordan Brand re-released one of the most beloved OG Jordans of all time – the Air Jordan III ‘True Blue’ – under one side-piercing condition: NOT in the United States. A shoe of that magnitude was worth the extra dollars in re-sale prices and shipping costs for stateside Jordan fans, and in turn, the Sneaker News staff deemed it one of the thirty best sneakers of 2009. Two years later, Jordan Brand has decided to release the True Blue III once more, but for all to enjoy. Why release the same shoe just two years apart? 2011 marks the 23rd anniversary of the Air Jordan III, and Nike has decided to re-issue some of the most celebrated original versions, so even if you copped the ’09s, doubling up wouldn’t be a crime. Tomorrow is the official release date for these joints, so check your local Jordan Brand retailer like Extra Butter for a crisp pair, or cop a pair right now on eBay.
