The Air Jordan 3 ‘Black Cement’ is one of the most important sneakers of all time. So, it came as no surprise that the sneaker community were apprehensive when a supposed sample of this year’s ‘Black Cement’ 3s leaked that left a lot to be desired. The cut was off, the perforation was too large and the signature elephant print too deep, among other disappointing discrepancies.

Thankfully, Jordan Brand have finally released official images and we can now rest easy. None of the aforementioned issues are anywhere to be found and the iconic sneaker looks as good as ever, especially with that ‘Nike Air’ branding on the heel, the first it’s been featured on the Black Cement since 2001. In fact, this might be the best BC 3 retro ever – or at least the best one that’s actually wearable in 2018!

The Air Jordan 3 ‘Black Cement’ will release on February 17 to celebrate the GOAT’s 55th birthday. Cop your pair through JACK LEMKUS and select stockists.
