During the 1988 Slam Dunk Contest, Michael Jordan pushed the limits of gravity even further when he launched from the free throw line. To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of that iconic moment, Jordan Brand will be releasing a special edition Air Jordan 3 Dunk Contest model.
Just like the previous ‘Cement’ Jordan 3, this colourway opts for elephant print detailing across the mudguard to the toe box and heel. A clean white upper provides a nice contrast and extends across a chunky tongue.
Subtle hits of red feature to the AJ3 ‘Free Throw Line’, hitting the eyelets as well as the Jumpman branding which is stamped to the tongue. Finally, unique lettering features across the outsole. The number ‘3.21’ is a homage to the exact moment Michael Jordan made that shocking leap.
Look for the Air Jordan 3 “Dunk Contest” to release on February 14th at select Jordan Brand retailers and Nike.com. The retail price tag is set at $200 USD.
