February is a special time for Jordan Brand, not only has All-Star Weekend served as the annual coming out party for the latest Air Jordan signature model. But as time has moved on, the weekend has served a new purpose; the housing of the next stage of flight and an honoring of the past. This year is no exception as the ‘Black Cement’ Air Jordan 3 Retro returns in its original form.
This year the Air Jordan 3 Retro becomes a focal point, even before the All-Star Weekend party kicks off. As Tinker Hatfield’s silhouette will feature a launch celebrating MJ’s 1988 Slam Dunk Contest victory over Dominique Wilkins. And the famed free throw line dunk. And brings the past out the vault by bringing Tinker’s early sketch of the Air Jordan 3 to life with a special launch and a Flyknit touted Air Jordan 3 Retro.
Have a look at the release dates and official images after the jump.
