Black Retro 3 Jordan Shoes For Basketball
It is a classic shoe. Perhaps the best Jordan shoe ever made. It saved the Jordan shoe line. It was the first shoe to use “Elephant Print”. 2011 is seeing it’s return to the sneaker world in a big way. And it is going to be dropped in another colorway very soon. The Air Jordan III. Already released in white/cement, “true blue”, “stealth”, “Black Cat”, and Doernbecher, and the soon to be black/cement colorways, the Air Jordan III is going to drop yet again in a different colorway. Dubbed the “Black Flip”, this colorway is an all black version and uses a reverse blocking of leather and elephant print. What does that mean? Basically the grey and black colors used to make up the elephant print are reversed to create a completely different look.
Back in 2007, there was an identical release but in a different colorway. That Air Jordan III used a white base for it’s upper with grey elephant print throughout.The midsole featured white and used a grey based outsole. Dubbed the “Flip”, the shoe was an instant classic and sold out everywhere. The upcoming ” Black Flip” colorway is essentially opposite in color. The shoe’s colorway features black on both the upper and midsole. Grey elephant print markings are featured on the upper. A solid grey outsole and Jumpman logo complete the shoe. A release date has yet to be set, but rest assured, like the other Air Jordan drops before it, this one will sell out quickly.
It is very fitting that the shoe that almost never was, is being released in so many different colorways this year. After the release of the Air Jordan II, Jordan shoes for basketball almost went away for good. Michael Jordan and a lot of sneakerheads didn’t take too well the the Jordan II. Many considered it a cheap Jordan shoe, in quality, design and look. In fact, Michael Jordan was days away from meeting with Adidas when Nike designer Tinker Hatfield was tasked with creating a Air Jordan shoe that would satisfy Mr. Jordan. What a task that would be! Well, Tinker stepped up and created the masterpiece which is known as the Air Jordan III. The rest is history. Cheap jordan shoes
