Nice Kicks has confirmed with sources at Jordan Brand that contrary to rumors floating around the web and social media, the Black/Cement colorway of the Air Jordan 3 ’88 (with ‘Nike Air’ on the back) is not releasing.

Jordan Brand has a solid lineup of shoes coming this Holiday season as we have just seen the release of the Jordan CP3.VII, “Steel Grey” Air Jordan 10s and this weekend will see the much anticipated return of the “Laney” Air Jordan 5.

Stay tuned to Nice Kicks for more updates about Jordan Brand releases.

    Hey,for everyone.The retro Jordan’s have a nike sign at the back 1-23 they rerelease those shoes with no nike logo,my point is the Jordan’s from 1988-1995 or later have logos of the nike and the swoosh

  • HankkMoody

    best idea they had in a while.  leave the nike air alone, save it for the real collectors and not these resellers.  thats like if nike starts to retro their sb line, a bad decision.

  • Jeremiah Alberto

    Hey Diego molinyawe,your an idiot.all the original retro Jordan’s have the nike logo and the swoosh all the OLDER ones,not the ones they rerelease like this one.They don’t put the nike logo for the new realese only the super old ones like the one in the picture,watch some nice kicks video and you’ll gonna understand it.

  • 305Kicks

    i use to love buying sneakers the hunt the history behind the shoe shoes that bring back memories but damn man it hurts me to say im losing the love i dont know if its over done now a days or just that i been doing it for so long and the level that the sneaker game is at now is at an all time high but its also wack .

  • TrisjenHarris

    @305Kicks I’ve said that previously that I have lost the love for the shoe game. Not because their aren’t shoes coming out, but because resellers and nike have made it so hard to cop a pair of J’s on release day. With all these twitter Bots you can’t even get shoes online anymore and good luck trying to get a pair in store with these tickets they give out.

  • Pat Capers

    I can get early release pairs inbox me for info!!

  • soledoutsneaks

    Have a 9, 9.5, 10, 10.5, 11, and 12 in these…but only 1 pair in each size remaining….no production tags on the tongue though…pre released samples…hit me at soledoutsneaks g mail
