Take a Detailed Look at the Air Jordan 3 "Dunk Contest"

Commemorating MJ’s infamous free throw line dunk.

By //Footwear

After receiving a first look at Jordan Brand‘s recent Future of Flight event in Los Angeles, we recently received a closer look at the Air Jordan 3 “Dunk Contest.”

Celebrating the model’s 30th anniversary, the latest iteration of the iconic shoe spotlights one of Michael Jordan‘s biggest basketball moments. MJ’s legendary free throw line dunk from the 1988 slam dunk contest is immortalized on the outsole of the shoe, as a solid red line peeks out from behind a clear icy sole. The upper of the shoe is an updated version of the Air Jordan 3 “White Cement” — expressing a primarily white upper accented by a contrasting “Cement” print.

Priced at $200 USD, the Air Jordan 3 “Dunk Contest” is set to release at select Jordan Brand retailers on February 14. For more Jordan Brand news, the Nike basketball division recently unveiled a friends and family Jordan 13 for University of Oregon’s sports teams.
