In the most talked about and perhaps unexpected development in recent memory (really saying something when you consider the bountiful holiday spread we just enjoyed), Jordan Brand grants the request for which so many die-hard fans have been begging. The Air Jordan III ’88 Retro brings back the coveted ‘Nike Air’ heel badge, a feature that’d been replaced by the Jumpman in recent iterations including the 2011 original colorway lineup. The hangtag follows suit for a classic feel as we approach this iconic design’s 25th anniversary with a projected February release date in line with that same birthday for the unforgettable free-throw-line-dunk poster. Have a look at some new images after the jump and stick with Sneaker News to see what else is in store to follow-up on arguably the best year of sneakers ever.
