Favorite Sneaker–Air Jordan 3 Black Cement–Chapter 1 with Tom Zappia


Welcome to the first chapter of “Favorite Sneaker.” I will be talking about my personal favorite sneaker and Jordan, for that matter, of all time–the Air Jordan 3 Black Cement. First and foremost I love the colorway more than any other Jordan because I love the cement with the black and red.

The third make in Michael Jordan’s series dropped in 1988 and 27 years later, they are still one of the most popular sneakers around. The Air Jordan 3, in which Jordan won his first scoring title back in 1988 by averaging a miraculous 37 points per night while also earning Defensive Player of the Year–ridiculous. Oh yes, and let’s not forget the memorable 1988 Dunk Contest when Jordan took off from the free throw line in the final round against fellow legend, Dominique Wilkins. Unfortunately I did not buy my first pair of black and cements (pictured above) until last summer. Now I want to wear them every day, but that’s just not possible.
