Jordan Brand brought back ‘Nike Air’ on the Air Jordan Retro by introducing the original White/Cement colorway of the III as a special tribute to Jordan’s iconic free-throw line Dunk from the ’88 Dunk Contest. Will the ‘Black/Cement’ make a comeback as well? It seems like it could make sense seeing that Michael did in fact wear the ‘Black/Cement’ colorway during that 1988 All-Star Game, during which he dropped forty points and took home the MVP trophy. Is a All-Star Weekend release in the works? If so, these are likely to be as hot of an item as the last time we saw the Air Jordan III ‘Black/Cement’ with ‘Nike Air’ was in 2001 and 1994. This teaser shot was spotted in a preview of an upcoming ESPN special on the Air Jordan and its impactful presence in sports and fashion, so stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates on this potential Air Jordan III Retro ’88 release.
