The classic AJ 3 is back, with a “metallic” twist.
Arguably one of the most popular sneakers of all-time, the Air Jordan 3 “Black Cement” is in most people’s Top 10, even Top 5, or Top 3. With news that its “White Cement” counterpart is finally returning in Spring 2023, Jordan Brand has plans to bring back the original “Black Cement” colorway of the AJ 3 this holiday season, with a slight modification.
This 2022 edition of the Air Jordan 3 Retro “Black Cement” sports metallic gold detailing. Coming in the traditional black, fire red, and cement grey color scheme, the sneaker remains true to the original design. An all-black leather upper is paired with fire red detailing on the eyelets and presumably the “Jumpman” logo on the tongue. Elephant print accents remain in the usual places, as does the cement grey rubber outsole. The midsole comes in a pre-yellowed sail color while the main attraction from this pair, metallic gold, highlights the tongue, wrapping around the middle eyestays, and the collar.
The Air Jordan 3 Retro Black Metallic Gold Cement W is set to release on October 6th, 2022. It will drop at Nike, as well as select Jordan Brand retailers worldwide, both online and in-store. Coming in women’s sizing, retail is set at $200. To stay up to date on the latest Jordan and sneaker news, follow us on Twitter and download the Sole Retriever mobile app.
