For those unable to cop the Air Jordan 3 “Black Cement” when they dropped earlier this year on Michael Jordan’s birthday, fret not, as the statement hoops-turned-lifestyle kicks are set to reappear. The throwback classic features the familiar tumbled black leather upper to that of the original, with contrasting hits of grey and red livening up the somber palette. Helping to round out its nostalgic appeal is the famed elephant print landing on the heel and front bumper, in addition to the popular “Nike Air” branding found at the back.
The Air Jordan 3 “Black Cement” has relaunched at Shiekh Shoes for $200 USD, however, act fast as these expect to sell out quickly. It’s also important to note that the AJ3s released in part of the retailer’s “Fri-Js” program, which aims to bring back certain Air Jordan retros that have earlier sold out.
