Flashback // Michael Jordan in the Air Jordan III "Fire Red"
words // Zack Schlemmer
The "Fire Red" Air Jordan III returns tomorrow for only the second time since its original release in 1988, so in typical Flashback fashion, we go back to that year for a look at the originals on the feet of Michael Jordan.
Although the Black/Cement and White/Cement versions get the most glory of the original four colorways of the Air Jordan III, the Fire Reds were actually the ones MJ wore most on the court during the 1987-88 NBA season. Take a look at ten classic shots of Michael in the OG's below, and let us know if you'll be picking up a pair of the "Fire Red" Air Jordan 3 Retro this weekend.
