- Black Friday will be a Good Friday to the Sneaker World. I'm a big fan of the Jordan Retro III. Especially the OG color ways. Unfortunately, when these were first Retro'd, I missed the release. BUT I will not make the same mistake twice. I am hearing chatter that this "General Release" or GR will have A LOT of availability in all sizes. DON'T QUOTE ME, it's just what I've heard.
- A little history on the Jordan III "True Blues": First released 1988. Then Released a few more times: 2001, 2009, 2011, and now 2016. The overall cut and design of the shoe is pretty much the same with the exception of the some Red accents on the upcoming release.
- The color way is classic. The only obvious difference between these and Original, is the Color on back of the tongue. On this 2016 version the back of tongue and lining is red. The previous release(s) had was blue tongue. I also hear chatter that people aren't big fan of the red accents (because it takes a bit away from the "OG" effect) but I HIGHLY DOUBT the color on the back of the tongue will prevent these from selling out. Luckily for me, my favorite color is red, I'm ALL for it. As you can see the color combination of White, Blue, and Red come together really well! And of course you have that Retro III signature Cement Grey detailing featured on this sneaker as well.
- I wanted to make sure to add multiple images and angles so that you could see the sneaker as good as possible. In my opinion these look good on camera and look better in person. If you haven't by now, you better start the process of locking down yourself a pair of these. If you are a sneaker enthusiast you will regret not getting a pair of these. You get my #GetLaced guarantee that these will definitely be a part of my collection come next Friday. I feel, any Retro Jordan with the Nike Air Brand Logo on the back of it, is a Sneaker Head NO BRAINER! Last piece of advice. Don't fall victim to reseller prices. Make sure you are ready for the retail release, to get retail prices. I know at a retail price of $220, people will do more thinking before purchase, Trust me, it will be worth it.
Release Date: November 25, 2016
