2018 is the 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan 3, and Jordan Brand is celebrating the legacy of the iconic sneaker through a quartet of upcoming colourways. The lineup includes the beloved “Black/Cement” colourway, as well as a contrasting white colourway with a clear outsole that references MJ’s legendary performance from the 1988 NBA All-Star Dunk Contest. They’re joined by a prototype pair, complete Fire Red accents and a Nike Swoosh to reflect designer Tinker Hatfield’s early sketches. A fourth pair, featuring a contemporary Flyknit build, ditches the Nike Air branding found on its three legacy counterparts and instead employs the Jumpman logo we’ve grown accustomed to.
