There's often a debate among sneakerheads about which Air Jordan is the best. Is it the Air Jordan 1 for starting it all? The Air Jordan IV for their classic silhouette? The Air Jordan XI for their versatile patent appeal? Or maybe it's the Air Jordan III for so many reasons? No matter which Air Jordan tops your list, the Air Jordan III deserves a mountain of respect.
The Air Jordan III was the first Air Jordan designed by the legendary Tinker Hatfield, who went on to design many iconic Air Jordan sneakers, among other influential Nike models. The Air Jordan III was also the first to showcase a Visible Air Sole unit. And, the first time the world got a glimpse of arguably the most recognizable icon in sports, the 'Jumpman' logo, it was on the Air Jordan III. The 2011 version of the "White/Cement Grey" colorway is almost identical to the original released in 1988, but to the dismay of many, the 'Nike' on the heel has been replaced by the aforementioned 'Jumpman' logo. Yet, it's still easy to see why this is one of the most anticipated releases of 2011. Look for them on Sneakerhead.com soon.
