Air Jordan 3 Tinker “Black Cement” Release Info
The Air Jordan 3 Tinker “Black Cement” is inspired by Tinker Hatfield‘s original Air Jordan 3 design sketch. This particular model, much like its “White/University Red” sibling, brings Tinker’s first sketch of the AJ3 to life thanks to its large heel clip featuring OG “NIKE AIR” branding. This “Black Cement” makeup differs from the classic version, mixing black suede and leather on the upper with texture arriving by way of tonal elephant print overlays and a glossy Nike Air heel logo.
Grey is used for contrast on both the tongue and eye stays, while a large grey lateral side Swoosh provides the shoe’s signature detail — one that was famously removed on the original model. Small touches of luxury are present as well, thanks to metallic gold detailing on the top eye stays, Tinker’s signature embroidered in gold on the inner tongue, and a golden graphic print on the insoles. A black/white midsole and grey outsole then finalize the look.
Take a look at the official Nike imagery below and pick up a pair of the Air Jordan 3 Tinker “Black/Cement Grey” on July 27 for $200 USD from Nike and select stockists worldwide.
