Air Jordan III ’88 Retro ‘White Cement’ (KICKS)

Nike Air is back.

Even though Jordan Brand released the nostalgic Air Jordan III ‘White Cement’ just two years ago, it’s making its way back into stores in 2013. Why, you ask? Well, after years of begging and pleaded from Jordan purists, the brand saw fit to release the shoe in its original form—fully equipped with ‘Nike Air’ on the rear.

The Air Jordan III ’88 Retro ‘White Cement’ will forgo the now customary Jumpman branding and return to its essence. Similar to the 2011 model in almost every way, the OG version features the classic ‘Nike Air’ branding on the heel along with a slightly higher price tag of $200.

    I’m done with Jordan brand man, $200 because they are changing the jumpman to a Nike swoosh? These price increases are just out of control and then you have to jump through hoops just to get a pair. It’d be one thing if they were improving the tech in the shoes but they are just the same old retros.

    i got these in 2004, for $115.00 brand new. The price went up $85 for a nike logo. smh.

    I really don’t wanna blame the “sneakerhead” culture because I do think its a really thing, but they really drive the demand and subsequently the price up by buying EVERYTHING!

    $200 and it probably cost them $5 a pair to make in some Asian sweatshop, where little kids probably make $1 a day.

    Yeah $200 to change the logo is FN ridiculous. I got the Bred 11s last christmas and the Thunder 4s and they weren’t more than $180. This one has got to retail for at the most $180…but…::sigh::…I’ll still get em at $200 anyways because I don’t have black/cement 3s yet.
