Jordan Brand is honoring MJ and his historic appearance in the 1988 NBA Dunk Contest in which he took off from the free throw line. That historic moment will go down in basketball history as one of the most legendary moments that the game will ever see. Players had been dunking for years but when Mike took off from the free throw line and did his infamous pose in the air as he reached out to the rim, it became cemented in history as one of the best.
Paying tribute to the Air Jordan 3 “White Cement” that he wore, a subtle elephant print design is featured on the upper. The translucent outsoles feature a Red Stripe and “3:51” as a nod to the time on the clock when that now iconic image of MJ’s 1988 free throw line dunk was captured.Additional detail includes a set of “10’s” as a nod to Jordan’s perfect 50 score.
