Original Story (05/11/20): In addition to the two versions of the “Red Cement” Air Jordan 3s that dropped earlier this year, a brand new “Fire Red” colorway of the AJ3 is expected to arrive very soon and will also come in two variations.
Just as the Red Cements played around with the Nike Air branding on the heel to show Chicago love during All-Star Weekend, these too will be putting a twist to the Nike Air branding. It is expected that one version will come with standard Nike Air branding on the heel, while the other will incorporate
a translucent heel tab over the Nike Air with Jumpman branding on it. [Japanese Nike Air branding.]
