Just a friendly reminder that the Air Jordan III '88 Nike Air Retro "White Cement" will be available in a few more hours, at exactly 4:51 pm EST, this afternoon. While the description "retro" been tagged onto every imaginable sneaker release in recent years, this particular edition actualize that term 100 percent. Since it predates the creation of Jordan Brand, the old Nike Air logo is now in its rightful place on the heel plate. As for the odd 4:51 pm EST release time, you will have to trace back to exactly 25 years to the date. It was on February 6th, 1988, when Michael Jordan defended his Slam Dunk Championship title in the old Chicago Stadium. That afternoon at 3:51 pm local time, Jordan left off from the free throw line for an astonishing dunk and secure his place in basketball history.

The Air Jordan III '88 Nike Air Retro "White Cement" will be available in men's, women's, girl's, and boy's sizes later this afternoon through NikeStore, Eastbay, Finish Line and select retailers.
