You’ve asked for it and we will deliver it. On Saturday, May 25th Footlocker.com will restock the Air Jordan 3 Retro ’88 OG “White Cement” in men’s and kids grade school sizes. This pair of kicks is most famous for being strapped to MJ’s feet during the epic 1988 NBA Slam Dunk Contest in which Jordan famously took off from the foul line in his third and final dunk – earning a perfect score of 50 to edge Dominique Wilkins and win the Contest. For those Jordan enthusiasts out there, this release includes a very special design change from Jordan Brand that hasn’t been on a retro in recent memory. The shoe that releases on the 25th will be identical to the OG release in 1988 (hence the ’88 in the shoe’s official name) meaning the branding on the heel will be the “Nike Air” logo instead of the Jumpman that has replaced it on Retro releases. The now-world famous Jumpman logo first appeared on the Air Jordan3 and is still featured on the shoe’s tongue. A white tumbled leather upper is complemented by cement elephant print overlays on the toe and heel. Fire red accents can be found on the Jordan branding on the tongue, inner lining, and lace holes.
The Air Jordan 3 Retro ’88 “White Cement” will be available ONLINE ONLY at Footlocker.com on Saturday, May 25th starting at 8:00 a.m. EST for $200 mens and $125 kids/grade school. There will be no phone orders for this release.
