Nike.com Singapore made a surprise rebranding of the launch calendar to SNKRS last week with two sneaker releases. Now, instead of just a transactional experience, users can keep tabs on specific sneakers and dive into their history and design thanks to exclusive content. This August, the platform will kick off with three sneakers scheduled for release, but none are as eye-catching as the Air Jordan 3 Tinker Black Cement. The sneaker will officially drop in Singapore on August 7, retailing at S$299.
To shake things up for its 30th anniversary in 2018, Jordan Brand and Nike have decided to unleash the legendary Tinker Hatfield’s original design of the Air Jordan 3 – which includes the swoosh on the side panels. Since then, a host of colorways have come through in this design, and it looks like the model won’t be discontinued just yet. The sneaker will arrive in a Black Cement iteration which combines all that is desirable about the Air Jordan 3 – a clean colorway, the iconic elephant print, Nike Air branding on the heel, and of course, the Nike swoosh. Rounding off the details, the sneaker also features premium gold accents on the top lace loop, insoles and Tinker Hatfield’s signature on the back of the tongue.
