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
