Its funny because i was goin thru some of my old stuff that I threw into a shoebox, when i came accross this Slam magazine 1988 edition.

I was flippin' thru the pages when i noticed Money wearing these:






He wore them in the 1988 Dunk Contest...its funny because i had a conversation with an OG Basketball fan (in his 40's) a year ago and he seen me wearing mywhite-cement 3's and asked me "are those the shoes Mike wore in the Dunk Contest when he beat Nique?"

And i replied Yea....he said: "I couldve swore they had blue in them." and i told him that he was thinking of the True Blues. He said to me"Nah, right here at the bottom (pointed at the elephant print) and said it was blue THERE."
I still denied even though i felt awkard telling this OG he was wrong...

It turns out....he proved me wrong
.....and this whole time i thought they were the White-Cements...

Those are White Cements, the Elephant Print does have a bluish look to it in that pic though, but they are White Cements just in weird lighting

First pic reminds me of the White/Blue/Red colorway of the Spizikes.


Maybe the angle of the cement print made it look blue?

Those are white and cement IIIs.

OG III elephant print + the quality of the photo makes it look different.

There is no blue tinged elephant print or this would have been shown longgg ago.

I thought it was blue too when I first saw it..
But it doesn't seem right. I watched the video, I saw other pictures. All I saw was just regular White/Cement.
I wish I was right, that they are blue. Hahaha...
