cement is a color description, elephant print is a stamped material
that can be found on the iii's, spizikes etc.

yea indohan nailed it, although i can understand the initial confusion given most people refer to both as "cement" colorways......"cementiii's" even though the print is elephant, the cw is cement grey

Not at all. Cement is indeed a color, but over time (and possibly due to confusion with the elephant print in the 1st place), the speckled part on the 4'swere referred to by some as cement print. However, if you look at the black/red/cement and white/red/cement 3's, do you see that print? Nah. It refers to acolor.

Lol, this thread amuses me. It's both a color and a print. Depends on what reference you use it as. Us OG heads' first reaction would be the IV'sprint.

OMG. Just refer to the pictures that I posted.
Either cement or elephant print, both are grey.
How is this so hard to understand?

Just don't call them BRED or Playoffs or All-Star.
If someone's gonna debate about this "cement" again, I'm going to talk like you're kindergarten kids.

his answer was given within the first two responses, yet people still feel the need to answer to prove their "sneaker knowledge"

Cement:


The grey part on this Air Jordan IV is cement.

Elephant print:


The grey part of this Air Jordan III is elephant print, because it looks like elephant print.
thats all there is to it

Elephant (the way it's used on the 3s) is actually more of a texture than a print if we are being technical. My bad s dubl!

Either way, indohan answered this question in the most obvious and easy way to understand.
