Back Again: Air Jordan III Retro White/Cement Grey

Air Jordan 3

I was in the 6th grade, standing at the bus stop on the corner of 174th Street & Longfellow Ave., waiting for the BX36 to take me from my South Bronx hood to what was then CS 102 in Parkchester.

It was while waiting for that sure to be too crowded bus in the a..m. where I saw a high school aged dude with a high-top fade rocking the above kicks; Air Jordan IIIs. At that point in time I had no clue what the shoes were. They were bright white, with illy snakeskin—no Nike check, but aha…the Air bubble. Those had to be the latest Js.

Seeing Kid ‘N Play rock them in their “Gettin’ Funky” video on Video Music Box (below), and Mars Blackmon (above), made me fiend for a pair just as much as Michael Jordan’s feats on the basketball court. But being that I wasn’t anywhere near a child of privilege, I didn’t even bother asking mom dukes for a pair. Knowing they were a buck ($100) plus at retail, i had to make due with my lo-top Air Trainers (about 60 to 70 beans at Dr. Jays on 3rd Ave, sale).

When the Air Jordan III’s get a retro-release sometime this year—Nice Kicks says they’ll be part of a Slam Dunk pack (MJ won the ’88 Slam Dunk contest in them)—they will get copped (two pairs), off g.p.

  3. Yo I hate the fact that JB is retro’ing EVERY fuckin sneaker I have. Oh yeah and those Dr. Jay sales on 3rd Ave in the BX were REAL! Lol

  4. Yeah, you can’t even put anything on “freeze” because when you’re ready to break them out and stunt on cats, the re-re-re-re-re-retro is in stores anyway. Still copping these, though. Ha!

  6. I remember when these were retroed about 7 years ago. I thought they were tough but I wasn’t fiend out. The true blue’s and the classic black/cement ones I crave for. I also think folks slept on the mochas.
