A fresh spin on a classic, Jordan Brand presents the ‘Sport Blue’ Air Jordan 3 this weekend.

The shoe is a new take on the original 1988 ‘Black Cement’ colorway, updated with sport blue accents on the eyelets, inner lining, tongue and heel branding, midsole and outsole. Sport Blue, which debuted on the original Air Jordan 6, also graced the ‘Wolf Grey’ Air Jordan 14 Retro that released two weeks ago.

You can pick up a pair of these Jordan shoes at Eastbay for $170 this Saturday, August 16 at 8:00 a.m. EST / 7:00 a.m. CST. Follow @Eastbay on Twitter and @OfficialEastbay on Instagram for all release information and updates.

Last September, the Jordan Brand introduced its Elements Collection, which involves taking the most prominent feature of one iconic Air Jordan model and applying it to the base of another. The first release was the 3Lab5, an all-new version of the 5 with a full elephant print upper. Grey and black-based colorways have already released, with a third on the way this fall. But before that goes down, Jordan Brand is flipping the script on the Air Jordan 3.

This Saturday marks the launch of the Air Jordan 5Lab3, which borrows the reflective detail from the tongue of the 5. The 5Lab3 features an upper made almost completely of reflective Metallic Silver, touches of elephant print, black accents and a translucent outsole.

You can get your hands on these highly anticipated Jordan shoes here for $225 this Saturday, March 29 at 8:00 a.m. EST / 7:00 a.m. CST. Follow @Eastbay on Twitter and @OfficialEastbay on Instagram for all release information and updates.

This weekend, the Jordan Brand will be taking us back in more ways than one. Not only are they rereleasing the iconic Air Jordan 3, but they’re doing so in an all-new colorway inspired by Michael Jordan’s home state and alma mater — North Carolina

The shoe is primarily decked out in ‘Powder Blue,’ a color that made its Jordan line debut on the Air Jordan 9 in 1993. Black offers contrast on the elephant print overlays, tongue, eyestay, heelstay and midsole. Wolf Grey complements the look on the Jumpman branding, inner lining and outsole.

Look for these Jordan shoes to release here for $170 this Saturday, January 18 at 8:00 a.m. EST / 7:00 a.m. CST. Follow @Eastbay on Twitter and @OfficialEastbay on Instagram for all release information and updates.

With a single leap from the free throw line in 1988, Michael Jordan changed the way we thought about sports and footwear. Was Michael already a basketball superstar? Sure. Were Jordan shoes already a hot commodity? Without a doubt. However, MJ’s historic contest-clinching dunk triggered his rise to international stardom and made the Air Jordan III — the first Jordan model to bear the Jumpman logo — truly iconic.

Since ’88, the “Cement” Air Jordan III has been re-released four times, most recently earlier this month. What made this drop different from the 2011 version was the inclusion of the highly coveted ‘Nike Air’ branding on the heel and hang tag. Add in the fact that the ’88 retro was produced in limited quantities and you have an extremely popular release that was difficult to get your hands on.

On the heels of Michael Jordan’s 50th Birthday and the 62nd Annual NBA All-Star Game, we’re giving you a second chance to bring the “Cement” Air Jordan Retro 3 home. On top of that, a matching snapback, t-shirt and shorts.
