Air Jordan 3 Cement Grey

The Air Jordan 3 “Cement Grey” release is right around the corner and for many sneakerheads, the moment could not come any quicker. For those who haven’t seen enough photos of this January 22nd release, new photos have surfaced displaying stunning details of this 1988 Tinker Hatfield masterpiece. What aspect of this particular colorway first caught your eye as a basketball enthusiast/sneakerhead? Was it the one-of-a-kind elephant print used on the heel and toe areas or perhaps the contrast tumbled leather used on various panels? Let us know in the comment section below.

    Absolute sneaker perfection. Copping 4 pairs.

    • yo mom

      shddup and you’re gonna resell all of them…

      • Andrew S.

        No son, I am not reselling any. Been in the game since I bought my first pair when I was 10 back in 88. Grown man buying grown man supplies. Step out of the way youngster.

        • Sole Kollektor

          i second that yo… these are perfect definately a keeper… i might cop a couple of pairs as well… these young cats have no idea what these shoes mean to a real sneakerhead…

          • Jordanhaeffner165

            wtf ur just gonna assume nobody cares about a shoe bc they werent around when it all started? You probly couldnt even name the games or how many points MJ had when he wore em. Get outta here

          • Charles Bronson

            just because u googled MJ stats doesnt meen u kno either. NlGGER.

          • Jordanhaeffner165

            r u serious? I “googled” some stats? ur a fool dude..

  • kep0ne

    Agreed. Might not cop 4, but I’ll be damned if I don’t my hands on a pair.

    • Andrew S.

      I usually don’t cop 4 pair of one shoe, but these are by far my #1 grails.

  • love4rondo

    how much are these gonna be? $160?

    • Angel

      $150. Only the 13s received the $160 price tag for some reason.

      • love4rondo

        Thanks bro. Where do you guys go to cop? In-store on online (Eastbay, Footlocker, etc.)?

        • ad9esr

          footaction n footlocker got em. 24-36 mens per store in the city n chi-town and 12 a store elsewhere. Get there early…Go celts!

          • Kobe

            will they b available online at midnight?

          • soul kollektor

            homie never go online at midnight, you will end up with a gift reciept and a sorry

          • louisvuittondon

            what do you mean a gift reciept and sorry? see im in pittsburg ks in college so online is my only option

          • Anonymous

            ^ He means you will get your feelings hurt cuz the site will oversell their inventory and then cancel orders and send u a bogus e-mail sayin “sorry your orde4r could not be filled” with a $25 gift card (thats what eastgay does)

      • Gorgon666

        Got my 13 last Tuesday for $150. Didn’t check the price on the box. Maybe they missed it at the shop

  • Angel

    Can’t say enough about how much I love these shoes. I’ve had the Fully Laced elephant print laces sitting in a ziploc at home waiting for this release. These are the perfect summer sneaker to throw on with some cargo shorts and a t-shirt. Simply clean and casual.

    • Anonymous

      Starks laces baby

      • Angel

        I’ve had trouble finding the Starks 55″ laces, though. The Fully Laced ones were tough to locate, too. Had to order those from a place in Texas.

        • The Megatron Don

          Pick your shoes got you on the 54” depending on what color you checkin for.

  • Beyond8Infinity

    Gottem yesterday, too fresh. You gotta stuff socks inside when u not wearing em tho cus they crease tooo easily

  • tamboi2

    nicekicks gonna get them?

  • Jshow16

    For sure cop. Got mine reserved.

  • Dannyfactz

    Lol its funny how JB releases retroes of bball shoes that you can’t really hoop in and charge more.

    • Andrew S.

      Why couldn’t you ball in these? Seems to me the greatest of all time did pretty well in them.

      • Eddie Cox

        the quality of the retros have gone down for two reasons really. 1. the retros are mostly used for cosmetic, and style purposes. 2. The retros will sell out regardless.

        • Andrew S.

          I don’t know if I agree. The qualities of the III’s has been pretty great. The True Blue’s from last yr were money. The black cements from the CDP were garbage but most of the CDP’s were garbage.

    • Showstaz

      i hooped in my fire red 3’s for a good bit til it started cracking on me bad. Mike Bibby just busted out the cements this past week too. they’re actually really comfortable and supportive basketball shoes

      • sjvfjas

        Bibby can wear them because that will be the only time they touch his feet.

  • Ariel Acosta

    Absolute Beauty! Ive been waiting for these for a good minute and the time has almost finally arrived!

  • Roc

    Nice Kicks When’s The Black Ones Coming???

  • Mazza 27

    • Jonahthaprophet

  • whatisthisidonteven

  • New Player

    I Love These, Im Copping.

  • Jaseonone

    Love em hot to def but man crack kills my 3’s from the countdown pack sole cracked after like 3 wears put pls believe that ain’t stop me…

  • Showstaz

    actually held a pair today at a finishline my friend works at….thought i’d never stoop low to say that Jordans aren’t as good of a quality shoe as the past retros, but i think i have stepped into the light. The tumbled leather is very shiny and has the potent leather smell the motorsport 6’s had. Even the leather on the fire red 3’s back in 2007 had better feeling and looking leather. Also the elephant print didn’t have the fuzzy texture to it that some of the 3’s and spizike’s posses (but the print ran very deep, which I liked). Either way I paid well below retail (with the employ discount my friend got me) to cop a pair, cause who can pass up on these?!?!

    • MD

      they only get 3 discount per store

  • Jbet

    Got them this past saturday, love them, great shoes not like the cheap feeling 2’s that came out last May. Don’t sleep on these u will be mad, and these run big instead of 11.5 I went with 11 and they fit great

  • 22 2’s

    Employee discount on J’s?

    • Andrew S.

      I’m gonna go ahead and call a bluff on that one.

    • MD

      yea , certain company allow discount on certain kicks, i’m lucky to get one my self!

  • Anonymous
