The latest entry in the Air Jordan 3 Tinker line follows up on last March's Air Max 1-inspired version with an all new take on one of the 3's trademark colorways with the Air Jordan 3 Retro Tinker "Black Cement".
This new version of Hatfield's original AJ3 sketch is dressed in premium black suede with black elephant print overlays on the toe and heel and a smooth black leather mudguard. The lateral side swoosh, which is what sets the Tinker apart from the normal 3, is rendered here with 3M reflective cement grey leather that also appears on the tongue and eyestay.
Metallic gold eyelets add a subtle luxe touch and match the gold embroidered Tinker Hatfield signature inside the tongue and the gold sketch print on the insole. Black laces and lining, a black Jumpman on the tongue, black Nike embroidery on the medial ankle and a black Nike Air heel badge finish off the details on the upper, while a white midsole and grey rubber outsole complete the design.
The Air Jordan 3 Retro Tinker "Black Cement" will release on Saturday, July 27th @ 10:00am both in-store and online.
