Don't get too excited by this pair of "Black/Cement" Jordan 3s with the coveted Nike Air treatment on back.

There aren't any current plans to release the shoe, but it is indeed the real deal. Samples like this were first spotted during a Jordan Brand Holiday Preview event in 2013, where only the left shoe was conspicuously on display as part of a massive wall of original Jordan colorways. That pair was marked as a Spring 2013 creation, and we're assuming that this one from collector oregonsole is of the same persuasion. Feel free to drool over this "Nike Air" Jordan 3 and stay with Sole Collector should news of a real deal retro ever arrive.
