2018 might just end up being the year of the Air Jordan 3, considering that it is the 30th anniversary of the model this year. Several different colorways of the Air Jordan 3 have already been unveiled since the beginning of this year, many of which will be arriving at retailers. The one seen above is the Air Jordan 3 Retro OG “Black Cement.” By many, it is regarded as the best Air Jordan colorway that Jordan Brand has ever created and this year, it is receiving the retro treatment. One of these recently unveiled colorways of the Air Jordan 3 happens to be a Player Exclusive.
Apparently, Jordan Brand has whipped up a “UNC” colorway exclusive for Michael Jordan’s alma mater, so it will likely not be joining upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018. The sneaker is nearly all-White, with the exception of the Cement Grey-colored elephant print overlays and the University Blue-colored detailing. Upcoming colorways of the Air Jordan 3 will also include a “Triple White” one. As its nickname suggests, this will be a completely plain White iteration, from the uppers down to its soles. Much like the Air Jordan 3 “Cyber Monday” from last year, it will also not feature any of the signature elephant print overlays over its heels and toes.
Another Air Jordan 3 colorway that Jordan Brand has whipped up is simply dubbed “USA,” since it features Blue, Red and White color scheme, with Blue covering its elephant print overlays too. The “Black Cement” mentioned above is actually a part of an Air Jordan 3 All-Star Dunk Series, which will also include a variation of the original “White Cement” colorway that Jordan Brand dropped thirty years ago. Last but not least, there is also a brand new Air Jordan 3 JTH NRG “Fire Red” that is on its way. With clean White-colored uppers, its elephant print overlays are covered in Black and Fire Red appears throughout.
Apart from the PE, each of the above colorway will be among upcoming Jordan releases 2018 and each of them will retail at a price of $200, except for one. The Air Jordan 3 “White Cement 30th Anniversary” will become available on February 14th, i.e. Valentines Day. The Air Jordan 3 OG Retro “Black Cement” will arrive at retailers on February 17th. The Air Jordan 3 “Triple White” will hit the shelves on July 21st at a price of $190. The Air Jordan 3 JTH NRG “Fire Red” is expected to make its retail debut soon as well, at some point in Spring 2018.
