When the first rendtiion of the Air Jordan Retro 3 "Flip" released back in 2007, Jordan Brand fans were definitely pleased with the unique display. Flipping the script and putting the Jordan III's most popular feature on display, the "Flip" Retro 3 recently returned this year in a simple black-based colorway.

Just like the 2007 debut, the black-based Air Jordan Retro 3 "Flip" was for the most part well received amongst fans and SC Forum Members. And although they released just a week after the return of the classic black/cement grey Retro 3 and in the same month as other anticipated drops, plenty of SC Forum members added the "Black Flip" Retro 3 to their collections.

For those who picked them up, was the "Black Flip" Air Jordan Retro 3 everything you expected? How do they stack up in comparison to the '07 white-based edition? Share your thoughts, quality complaints, photos and pick-up stories in the comment section below as we look back on the release of the "Black Flip" Air Jordan Retro 3.
