Air Jordan3

FreeBuy / 2008-11-09

 

Air Jordan 3 (III)
The 87-88 season was when Michael would receive his first NBA Most Valuable Player award. He also crushed the competition in the Slam Dunk contest and led the Bull’s to their best result since the 1974-75 season. Well he actually won all the major honors one can think of.
 
The new shoe was excellent. It  was released in 1988. The design was totally different from the Air Jordan 1 (I) and Air Jordan 2 (II) and was the first pair of Air Jordans that showed a visible air sole. Behind it stood Tinker Hatfield who since then have designed every Air Jordan model up to the Air Jordan 15 (XV).
 
This was also the very first Air Jordan to feature the Jumpman logotype instead of the Wings-logo that was on the Air Jordan 1 (I) and Air Jordan 2 (II). In addition, the Air Jordan3 featured elephant print on the upper. Though this materia was only used again on 1 other model, it set a standard that the Jordan shoes are as much fashionable as functional.
 
This might be one of the most popular Air Jordan’s ever. It has won numerous polls when questioning which the greatest sneaker through all times is. Air Jordan fans also freaked out when they retroed this model in 1994. Shoe stores once again had major problems selling them though.
 
Nike created a personality ad campaign featuring the Mars Blackmon character who was created and played by director/actor Spike Lee.
 
This campaign followed Air Jordan for a couple of years and is definately one of the most appreciated Nike commercial series through all time.
 
When the Air Jordan III was re-retroed in 2001 it was no surprise they sold very well. However, only three different colors were released and after great pressure from the AJ fans Jordan Brand found they could not escape releasing the Air Jordan 3 (III) Retro+ - White / Cement Grey - Fire Red in a re-retro version. This was done in 2003.
