AIR JORDAN 3 RETRO LS
As one of the most important sneakers in history, the Air Jordan 3 is always well received when it returns as a retro, even when it’s a completely new colorway like the 2007 Air Jordan 3 “Cool Grey” colorway. Unlike modern sneakers, the Jordan 3 got its importance from what Michael Jordan did in the shoe and the trends that it started thanks to designer Tinker Hatfield. The dunk from the free throw line in 1988, the debut of the iconic Jumpman logo and the popularization of Elephant Print all are deeply rooted in the original Air Jordan 3, yet decades later, the right color combination–like the Silver/Sport Red-Light Graphite-Orange Peel more commonly known as the Cool Greys–still sells out at retail and webstores. As they say, “It’s gotta be the shoes.”

Instead, the upper panels including the toebox and sides are finished in a black Elephant Print.

Jordan 3 Retro Black Cement
