The White Cement Air Jordan 3 "88" with the Nike Air on the heel was one of the most anticipated sneaker releases of all time. By the time that 2013 came around, it seemed like every Air Jordan collector was tired of seeing the Jumpman on the heel o Jordan 3s and ready for the return of the Nike Air Branding. Of course, the Nike Air Jordan III is iconic for many reasons. It was one of the first sneakers to feature the famed Elephant Print. Back in 1988, the Air Jordan III was presented to Michael Jordan by Tinker Hatfield and was an important piece in convincing MJ to stay with Nike. The White Cement AJ3 became legendary thanks to Michael Jordan winning the NBA Slam Dunk Contest in them by jumping from the free throw line. The dunk is one of the most famous Michael Jordan images of all time. 25 years later, down to the minute, Nike celebrated the most iconic slam dunk of all time by releasing the White Cement Jordan III "88" complete with Nike Air on the heel. The Air Jordan Retro 3 88 White Cement released for $200 at 4:51 EST on February 6th, 2013. It became one of the most talked about releases of all time and sold out instantly. A month later the Retro 3 88 released in Asia and subsequently restocked at various retailers a number of times over the 18 months that followed but remains a highly sought after sneaker.
