The Jordan III is easily about 85% of most Jordan Heads Holy Grail. This colorway which First Retroed in 2001 specifically. This shoe is so dope, Nike retroed it 3 times to date(1994, 2001, and 2008), with a 4th release this comming black friday.
This actual pair is 10 years old
Now the Question is, what do you do when Age catches up with this pair? the simple answer is to send them to me silly 😛
You may wonder why even go through the effort (and prices) to get a 2001 retro when you can just get a 2011 pair. well, Quality of the materials are way better in the 2001 model.
The 2001 pair uses real Tumbled leather, as opposed to the Synthetic Leather Nike has been using nowadays.
Real tumbled leather looks better when its worn, Synthetic just looks plastic and is ultra stiff
All the Jordan IIIs after these look like….
Lil stuff like that makes this shoe a true Holy Grail. Nostalgia at its best people 🙂
