    Pros - Silhouette, colorway, overall fit, status
    Cons - creasing, yellowing, breathability
    When I first got into Jordan sneakers, I was immediately drawn to the 3's. For whatever reason, their sleek design and silhouette was eye candy. The colorways were so ahead of their time (white cements, fire reds, true blues, and of course these). To me, the black cements are the greatest Jordan release. Whether its the elephant print or the red eyelets, the black leather or the bold red jumpman on the tongue, these were the shoe that defined Jordan's iconic status. Just owning a pair was like belonging to a selective movement. I will always cherish these shoes and continuously buy pairs of black cements when my old pairs wear out. These are a must have for any shoe head, jordan fan, basketball player-- hell anyone who loves nikes in general.

    Pros - the sickest color wave
    when it come to being a shoe head theres a few thing one must know and must have if not how can one call his or herself a true shoe head. and the jordan 3 is apple of all jordan heads eye in my opinon the shoe game has come along way from when i myself first started in the game. what started of as just copping shoes turned into a lifestyle or as some will say a culture full of hypebeasting wannabe with their over hyping. social media has murdered the shoe game making everyone hop on the bandwagon of reselling shoes...what happen to the game...the jordan 3 will always be my favorite of the collection...

    Pros - Comfort, Classic silhouette, versatility, waerability
    Cons - Cracking, creasing, yellowing (of course)
    One of the reasons I love sneakers now. Probably hands down the most recognizable Jordan Brand silhouette. Classic colorway that goes with basically anything. Love this shoe. Just wish it hadn't become everyone's "go-to" shoe when choosing a good pair of J's.

    Jordan brand should have done the '88 in Black colorway before the white IMO.

    Quite simply......tha G.O.A.T!!!! No kick comes near this shoe!
    I have myself experienced midsole cracking (to the acryllic paint only), fogged air units, and some extensive 'heel tab' cracking.
    Now, I too practically live in these...and truly believe that having the ambition to 're-paint' and 'de-fog' our kreps is an essential tool we must harness.And tbh its so simple.
    Heel tab cracking however is a PROBLEM.The only solution I have found thus far,after relentless research is....replacement!!!
    Many fellow enthusiasts have chosen to remove the existing 'Jumpman' on retro releases,and replace with some sort of polyurethane/plastic/rubber stencil of the 'Nike Air & Swoosh sign/logo.For heel tab cracking however,a more indepth approach is needed.
    Now,again many fellow sneakerheads/collectors/restorers have chosen to sand out any imperfections and refill with some kind of plasticised filler/compound I am yet to discover....and so,I have turned to 3D printing!!!
    Im from London,England and lucky enough to have many outlets providing 3D printing for 1 off projects,which is so cost effective.
    I managed to find blue-prints for the O.G heel tab ramifications,and plan to submit to my local printer asap....will keep y'all posted.
