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.
