Today is a great day for Air Jordan 3 fans. The much coveted Air Jordan 3 ’88 Retro gets a restock and the Air Jordan 3 “Fire Red” colorway will be dropping in August.
As for the Air Jordan 3 Retro ’88, they will drop on Saturday, May 25 at Footlocker.com and Finishline.com in the “White Cement” colorway (Note: We’re still keeping the faith for a “Black Cement” drop). You already know the story (they’re the shoes Air Jordan took off from the free throw line in to win the 1988 NBA Slam Dunk Contest). The are the closest you will get those shoes (unless you like wearing museum worth pieces) since the “Nike Air” logo replaces the usual “Jumpman” branding. They will be available online only starting at 8 a.m. and will be $200 in adult sizes and $125 if you’re looking out for the little kids in your life.
Now the Air Jordan 3 in the “Fire Red” make up were the only OG version not to get a Retro release in 2011. These will be dropping on August 3, reports Sole Collector, with a full size run and are guaranteed to sell out in the hour despite the $160 price tag. These sport a darker cement print than the other version of the same model and the gray near the laces almost makes them stand out. Best of luck landing a pair of either of these.
Jordan Brand is making it extremely difficult for any discerning sneakerhead to save their money. There are two fresh OG colorways of Michael Jordan‘s signature kicks getting retro releases; the Air Jordan 8 (aka “Bugs Bunny” or “Hare”) and the Air Jordan 13 (aka “He Got Game“). The Air Jordan 8 in the Bugs Bunny colorway (called so because cartoon character also known as “Hare Jordan” was rocking them in Space Jam ads) drops on April 20. The actual official colorway is denoted as White/Hyper Blue-True Red-Flint Grey and they will cost you $160. The shoe featured the criss-crossing straps that made the shoe stand out from the pack. The Air Jordan 13 drops sooner, on March 16. The “He Got Game” moniker is thanks to Denzel Washington rocking them in the Spike Lee directed He Got Game. Standout elements of the shoes design include the holographic “eye” near the heal, the leather upper and all around classy look of the sneaker. Expect both of these kicks to jam webpage servers as people try lock down their own pair.
