In 2018, Jordan Brand released two Air Jordan 3 colorways that both take on the iconic original “White Cement” color blocking that debuted back in 1988.
First spotted on the feet of Justin Timberlake during the Super Bowl LII halftime show, the Air Jordan 3 JTH was designed after one of Tinker Hatfield’s original sketches. The shoe was updated with a Swoosh on the lateral side, “NIKE” printed on the medial collar along with JT’s signature embroidered on the inside of the tongue.
In celebration of Michael Jordan’s iconic launch from the free throw line thirty years ago during the 1988 Slam Dunk Contest, Jordan Brand released the Air Jordan 3 “Free Throw Line” colorway. The shoe boasts a translucent sole with a red stripe that nods to where MJ took off from the line. Other notable details includes “3:51” lettering on the back pull tab remembering the time Jordan took flight, and “147” on the tongue as a nod to his final score.
