It seems like Nike has really heard the cries and complaints from diehard sneakerheads. Jordan fans will be happy to know that the company has decided to bring back the coveted “Nike Air” logo that came on the back of OG Jordans. The majority of the re-releases have come out without this, and only feature a jumpman and the word “air” on the back. There’s no telling if more Js will feature this logo or if it’s just a one off for yet another release of the Jordan III white cement, but we’ll keep you updated. Look out for these to drop sometime in Spring 2013.
This special release will in fact come with a nice commemorative back-story, with Jordan’s 1988 Slam Dunk Contest win possibly at focus (perhaps a February release). Is this a sign of things to come? Will Nike Air make a return with more AJ3 original colorways, as well as the IV, V, and VI? -Sneakernews
