Nike Air Jordan True Blue III release date

We have two confirmations: not only will these release on June 4th, 2011, they will also have the OG Jordan box and packaging. This is a welcome surprise. Hopefully this trend will continue and there will be new boxes for all the coming Jordan Legacy Collection releases

2011 Black History Month Collection

Official Nike Press Release

This year’s Black History Month Nike Air Force 1 celebrates the achievements and pioneering spirit of three important basketball players: Julius Irving, Michael Jordan, and Kobe Bryant. There was a call to greatness for all three players, a moment in time that defined their careers, and changed the course of history for the sport of Basketball. For Dr. J, it was unifying the ABA and NBA with his finesse and high flying style. For Jordan, it was the ’87 Slam Dunk title, the one that made kids all over draw chalk lines to jump from in their backyards. When Kobe scored 81 points in ‘06, it made you question what planet he was from. Each player laid the foundation for the next to elevate the game even further.

The predominantly black upper of this Black History Month AF1 is a nod to the past, because in the early days of the sport of basketball, shoes on the court were almost always black. The hints of gold all around the shoe are reminders of the golden moment we all are striving to achieve. You’ll also find a woodblock cut print around the upper by artist Hele Woodruff, adding another chapter to the pioneer story.

With a premium Stetson leather upper, metal eyelets and accessories, gold stitching, and a clear tinted outsole, you’ll see this isn’t just your average AF1. This is a sneaker that celebrates a powerful pioneering spirit.

Air Jordan III Cement Gray Release Date is set in stone

This is the third time this colorway has been retroed, the second time we’ve seen this iteration (Jumpman Air instead on Nike Air) but they are expected to fly. The box was the deciding factor for some, also the fact the ’94 Cements would probably crumble after a few steps anyway.

OG Boxes return in 2011

It seems that in 2011 the Jordan White Cement III’s will have packaging reminiscent of the ’88 Cement releases (of course its missing that sexy “Nike Air” on the box as well as the shoes), this may make these fan favorites nearly impossible to get. January 22nd is the date, act like you know.
